Objective: This study investigates the cardiotoxicity of Oxaliplatin (OXA) on rat heart by using oxidative stress parameters on myocardium and troponin I and S100A1 levels of serum.
Material and methods: Acute OXA treatment (4 mg/kg/ 1st, 3rd and 5th days) has been administered to the 6-8 months old rats. The heart and serum samples obtained at day 7th and 14th days of the study. Chronic OXA treatment (4 mg/kg/ two days of week/ 4 weeks) administered, sacrificed and heart and serum samples obtained at day 28th and following 21 days of the completing administration of drugs.
Results: Oxa treatment did not cause heart injury in our acute and chronic study design.
Conclusion: Oxa treatment seems safe.
