This study investigates the potential genotoxicity of Schistosoma mansoni infection in mice and the possible protective role of the antioxidants provitamin Î²-carotene (Î²C) and N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) with and without praziquantel (PZQ) treatment against these genotoxic effects. Mice were classified into 12 groups each of five mice; the 1st ..
