[Protective effects of metaprot and ethomerzol in carbophos intoxications].Eksp Klin Farmakol. 2012; 75(8):25-30.EK
The mechanisms of protective action of thiobenzimidazole derivatives metaprot and ethomerzol (25 and 50 mg/kg) have been studied on a model of carbophos intoxication (256.0 +/- 8.7 mg/kg) in rats. Both compounds recovered the resistance to physical loads in forced swimming test, normalized the activity of aspartate and alanine transaminases, and reduced bilirubin, creatinine, and urea nitrogen levels in the blood serum. The intoxication was accompanied with increasing concentration of malonic dialdehyde and decreasing level of recovered glutation in the blood, as well as with the signs of endogenic intoxication. Metaprot and ethomerzol diminished disorders of both the lipid peroxidation and endogenic intoxication processes. Thus, the antihypoxic, antioxidant, actoprotective, energotropic, and reparative effects of metaprot and ethomerzol have been proved. Ethomerzol was more effective than metaprot in these tests.
