Comparative studies on the effects of toluidine blue and methylene blue on the reduction of ferrihaemoglobin in man and dog


In humans and in dogs, respectively, about 30 and 60% of the haemoglobin was oxidized to ferrihaemoglobin by intravenous injection of 4-dimethylaminophenol hydrochloride. Toluidine blue was found to accelerate the subsequent reduction of ferrihaemoglobin in dogs 2–3 times more rapidly than methylene blue. In man toluidine blue 2 mg/kg was about twice as… (More)
