The protective role of antioxidant N-acetylcysteine (NAC), that plays a role in detoxification of free radicals, on oxidative stress has been reported. However, its efficacy on cisplatin-induced oxidative stress in patients has not been elucidated yet.
This is a randomized, double-bind placebo controlled study. Patients received a syrup of NAC.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
