Benzoic acid metabolism in presence of Schistosoma mansoni infection in mice.


PMID 2509337

Abstract

The metabolism of benzoic acid was examined in S. mansoni infected CBA mouse. The result showed that control animals dosed with 150 mg/kg benzoic acid resulted in urinary excretion of two metabolites, hippuric acid and benzoic acid glucuronide. Administration of the same dose to animal carrying S. mansoni for a period of over 6 weeks resulted in decreased formation of hippuric acid and total elimination of benzoic acid by glucuronide pathway.
