The aim of the study was to investigate the antiperoxidative potential of ascorbic acid on cisplatin-induced lipid peroxidation, using some common laboratory markers. Goat liver was used as the lipid source. This in vitro evaluation was done by measuring the malondialdehyde, 4-hydroxy-2-nonenal, reduced glutathione, and nitric oxide content of tissue homogenates. The results suggest that cisplatin could induce lipid peroxidation to a significant extent, and it was also found that ascorbic acid has the ability to suppress the drug-induced toxicity.
