The present study was undertaken to evaluate the genotoxic potential of Copaifera langsdorffii leaf hydroalcoholic extract (CLE) and its influence on the genotoxicity induced by the chemotherapeutic agent doxorubicin (DXR) using the Swiss mouse peripheral blood micronucleus test. The results demonstrated that CLE itself was not genotoxic. In animals treated with CLE and DXR, the number of micronucleus was significantly decreased compared to animals receiving DXR alone.
