Cytotoxic effects of amiodarone and desethylamiodarone on human thyrocytes.

Abstract

Since recent in vivo evidence suggests that the benzofuran antiarrhythmic drug amiodarone has a direct toxic effect on the human thyroid gland, we have investigated the effects of both amiodarone and its metabolite desethylamiodarone on a novel immortalized functional human thyrocyte line (SGHTL-34 cells). Desethylamiodarone markedly reduced cell number as… (More)
