[Mechanism of hepatoprotective action of methionine and composition "Metovitan" against a background of antituberculosis drug administration to rats].


PMID 23808311

Abstract

Oral administration of antituberculosis drugs to rats for 60 days in doses that are equivalent to clinical ones, causes changes in mRNA levels expression of liver cytochrome P-450 isoforms CYP3A2, CYP2C23, CYP2E1 and pro- and antioxidant state. Experimental composition "Metovitan" given with anti-TB drugs provided a correction of these abnormalities, that is evidenced by modulation of the level of CYP3A2, CYP2C23, CYP2E1 gene expression and antioxidant activity, inhibition of lipid peroxidation. "Metovitan" normalizes the enzymatic activity and content of total billirubin in the blood serum, shows high hepatoprotective properties, exceeding the efficiency of methionine.
