Correlation of biological activity (therapeutic and toxic) with solvochromic properties of metronidazole, emetine hydrochloride and diloxanide furoate.


PMID 8713754

Abstract

Goat blood, when incubated for different periods with diloxanide furoate, metronidazole and emetine hydrochloride, underwent changes in fatty acid constituents and their peroxidation products measured as malonaldehyde. These findings, together with the changes noted in the drug-lipid partition coefficient, are discussed in an attempt to correlate the lipid constitution and biological activity of the drugs.
