The anti-oestrogen drug tamoxifen is an inhibitor of lipid peroxidation in rat liver microsomes and in phospholipid liposomes. Its cis isomer and N-desmethyl form are weaker inhibitors, but 4-hydroxytamoxifen is much more powerful. It is possible that the antioxidant property of tamoxifen might contribute to its biological actions. © 1990.
