Micronucleus (MN) test, sister chromatid exchanges (SCE) and sperm malformation test were used to study the effects of asparagus juice on the mutagenic activity of cyclophosphamide (CP). It was found that, asparagus juice itself showed no effcet on the incidence of MN, SCE and sperm malformation, but asparagus juice reduced the incidence of MN (from [email protected] to [email protected]@1000), SCE (from 29.22 times/cell to 26.40-13.37 times/cell) and sperm malformation (from [email protected] to [email protected]@1000) induced by CP respectively. The inhibitory effects showed a dose dependent relation, which was statistically significant.
