Characterization of vitamin A potentiation of carbon tetrachloride-induced liver injury.

Abstract

Pretreatment of rats with large doses of vitamin A (VA, retinol) has been shown to potentiate carbon tetrachloride hepatotoxicity. The relationship between VA dose or pretreatment duration with VA and the extent of potentiation of CCl4 hepatotoxicity is unknown. Therefore, VA was administered to male SD rats (180-200 g) by oral gavage in daily doses of 100… (More)
