Considering the role of oxidative stress in carcinogenesis, we investigated the effect of synthetic antioxidant Pirolin (3-carbamoyl-2,2,5,5-tetramethylpyrroline-1-oxyl) on breast cancer progression. Since the anticancer drugs may cause cardiotoxicity due to oxidative stress in the heart muscle, we also evaluated Pirolin...
