Pre‐treatment with vitamin C caused a dose‐dependent attenuation of cytotoxicity, as measured by acridine‐orange/propidium iodide (AO/PI) and Annexin V assay after treatment with TAM.
Vitamin C dose‐dependently protected cancer cells against lipid peroxidation caused by TAM treatment.

The administration of riboflavin (45 mg/kg … (100 mg/kg bw/day) and ascorbic acid (200 mg/…) along with tamoxifen (45 mg/kg bw/day) caused a significant decrease in the activity of glycolytic enzymes … increase in the activities of gluconeogenic enzymes to near normal levels in experimental animals.

E(2) significantly elevated both AA and LHRH release and the minimal effective dose was 10(-7) M. A combination of E(2) (10(-7) M) and tamoxifen (10(-6) M) totally blocked E(2)-induced AA and LHRH release.
