Use of the chemotherapeutic agent Adriamycin is complicated by its potentially lethal cardiac toxicity. DNA base pair damage induced by Adriamycin results in its effectiveness against cancer; however, simultaneous production of free radicals results in toxic side effects. In this study on mice, Adriamycin-induced mortality reached 60% in the control group (regular chow diet), compared to 20% in the group receiving a 6% MAK-4-supplemented diet (p<0.05), and 40% in the group receiving a 0.2% MAK-5-supplemented diet.
