.They developed a critical perspective on sociopolitical events and came to understand power asymmetries.For local antitoxic
women activists, the combined effects of gender, local knowledge, and technical skills may create a powerful force for social change- a force that can sustain them through decades of resistance from industry (Culley and Angelique 2003, p.
Investigation of T-cell-mediated and humoral immunity in patients with gastric cancer over the course of treatment found a reduction of the main indices of cell-mediated and humoral immunity in patients with gastric cancer who underwent standard therapy, which greatly caused a decline of antitumor, anti-infective, and antitoxic
protection of the patients' organisms.
impetiginosus bark provided protection against toxic and genotoxic effects induced by the chemotherapeutic agent, DXR, in the bone marrow of mice (time- and gender-independent antigenotoxic effect, time- and gender-dependent antitoxic

Activity," Journal of Immunology Research, vol.
Studies in mammals and in vitro have shown that flavonoids exert antioxidant, antiallergic, hepatoprotective, antiviral, anticarcinogenic, neuroprotective, antitoxic
, anxiolytic, antiepileptic, estrogenic, and antidepressant-like effects by inhibiting some enzymes [63-66], which is dependent on the dose and type of flavonoid administered.
This plant has several medical advantages including antimicrobial, antibacterial, antioxidant and antitoxic
activities used in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, tumors, articular pains and respiratory diseases and reproductive dysfunctions (Qureshi et al., 2014).
Bitter compounds (e.g., isothiocyanates and glucosinolates from broccoli and cauliflower, naringin from grapefruit) inhibited the activation of carcinogens (a type of garvisha) by phase 1 enzymes (cytochrome P-450) and/or accelerated detoxification of carcinogens by inducing phase 2 enzymes [239,242], therefore displaying the antitoxic
(vishagna) property according to Ayurveda.
Most plant antitoxic
agents function by neutralizing sv[PLA.sub.2]'s toxicity.
The plant has been studied for hepatoprotective, immunomodulatory, antihyperglycemic, hypolipidemic, antitoxic
, anti- inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal activities .
Further investigation of the toxicity mechanisms as well as the search for antitoxic
substances to prevent the negative impact of heavy metals is of current importance.
