Because of the frequent reports of hepatic toxicity associated with long-term administration of methotrexate, a rat model was developed utilizing daily methotrexate administration. This model revealed an incidence of fatty metamorphosis of over 80 percent, atrophy and necrosis of 30 percent, and fibrosis of 10 percent. Fatty liver changes did not differ substantially from control animals in those animals receiving long-term thydroxyurea, an agent which, like methotrexate, inhibits DNA synthesis… Expand
