Acute toxicity of berberine and its correlation with the blood concentration in mice.


The aim of this study was to investigate the LD(50) (median lethal dosage) of berberine (BBR) through three different routes of injection in mice: intravenous (i.v.) injection, intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection, and intragastric (i.g.) oral administration. The concentration of BBR in blood from their i.g. doses (10.4, 20.8, 41.6, and 83.2 g/kg) and the… (More)
