Cyclophosphamide, a chemotherapeutic and immunosuppressive drug, has been linked to problems after bone marrow transplantation in the past. More recently, it has been demonstrated that cardiotoxicity limits the dose of cyclophosphamide, and cardiology is receiving more attention. Though the exact mechanism of cyclophosphamide-induced cardiotoxicity is unknown, oxidative and nitrative stress are suspected to play a role. As a result, the focus of this review is on antioxidants and how they can reduce or prevent cyclophosphamide-induced cardiotoxicity. It will place a special emphasis on the cardioprotective properties of naturally occurring, plant-derived antioxidants such as curcumin extract, which have recently attracted a lot of interest.
