Chloroquine is a synthetic quinoline being used as an antimalaria and antirheumatoid agent. Several cases of hepatotoxicity have been reported with the use of chloroquine. However, the mechanism(s) of its hepatotoxic effect is unknown. The purpose of this study was to investigate the cytotoxic mechanism of chloroquine. 
Mechanisms of methimazole cytotoxicity in isolated rat hepatocytes
TLDR
It is indicated that methimazole reactive metabolites are responsible for the cytotoxicity induced by this drug, but the role of glyoxal as a metabolite, which causes ROS formation, LPO, and mitochondrial injury, is predominant because the Glyoxal-trapping agents diminished these adverse effects.

Evaluation of amitriptyline-induced toxicity in freshly isolated rat hepatocytes and the protective role of taurine"
Administration of amitriptyline, a most commonly used tricyclic antidepressant, is associated with anticholinergic side effects and rare but severe hepatotoxicity. It supposed that the intermediatedExpand
Antimalarial Drugs-Induced Hepatic Injury in Rats and the Protective Role of Carnosine
TLDR
The data suggest that carnosine possesses protective properties against amodiaquine and/or chloroquine‑induced liver injury possibly through mitigation of drug-induced oxidative stress and its consequent events. Expand
Mechanistic Approach for Thioridazine-Induced Hepatotoxicity and Potential Benefits of Melatonin and/or Coenzyme Q10 on Freshly Isolated Rat Hepatocytes
TLDR
The possible protective role of Coenzyme Q10 and/or melatonin against TZ-induced cellular injury probably through their radical scavenging properties and their effects on mitochondria and lysosomes is proposed. Expand
Mechanisms of Trazodone‐Induced Cytotoxicity and the Protective Effects of Melatonin and/or Taurine toward Freshly Isolated Rat Hepatocytes
TLDR
Trazodone caused an increase in reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation, malondialdehyde accumulation, depletion of intracellular reduced glutathione (GSH), rise of oxidized glutathion disulfide (GSSG), and a decrease in mitochondrial membrane potential, which confirms the role of oxidative stress in trazodone‐induced cytotoxicity. Expand
Concurrent Inflammation Augments Antimalarial Drugs-Induced Liver Injury in Rats.
TLDR
Interestingly, liver injury was evident only in animals treated with both drug and LPS as estimated by pathological changes in serum biochemistry, and liver tissue, which indicates a synergistic liver injury from co-exposure to antimalarial drugs and inflammation. Expand
Cytoprotective Effects of Taurine Against Toxicity Induced by Isoniazid and Hydrazine in Isolated Rat Hepatocytes
TLDR
It is suggested that the protective effects of taurine against isoniazid and its intermediary metabolite hydrazine cytotoxicity in rat hepatocytes could be attributed to antioxidative action. Expand
In vitro and in vivo evaluation of the mechanisms of citalopram-induced hepatotoxicity
TLDR
It is suggested that citalopram hepatotoxicity might be a result of oxidative hazard leading to mitochondrial/lysosomal toxic connection and disorders in biochemical markers which were supported by histomorphological studies. Expand
Novas abordagens sobre o potencial antitumoral de produtos naturais e semi-sintéticos em melanoma in vitro
INTRODUCTION: Cancer is an important cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and its numbers continue to increase showing the impact of this disease on public health. Regarding melanoma, despiteExpand
Involvement of oxidative stress and mitochondrial/lysosomal cross-talk in olanzapine cytotoxicity in freshly isolated rat hepatocytes
TLDR
It is concluded that OLZ hepatotoxicity is associated with both mitochondrial/lysosomal involvement following the initiation of oxidative stress in hepatocytes and CYP450 is involved in OLZ-induced oxidative stress and cytotoxicity mechanism. Expand

Hepatotoxicity associated with the use of a fixed combination of chloroquine and proguanil.
TLDR
Clinicians should be aware of this drug-induced liver injury associated with the use of a fixed combination of chloroquine and proguanil, because of the widespread use of both drugs. Expand

TLDR
Bromoheptane would be particularly useful for studying the role of GSH in modulating xenobiotic cytotoxicity, as it is directly proportional to the concentration and increasing chain length of 1-bromoalkanes. Expand
Paracetamol and conventional antimalarial drugs induced hepatotoxicity and its protection by methionine in rats.
TLDR
The results reveal that, methionine significantly prevented the rise in transaminases levels produced by hepatotoxic doses of paracetamol and chloroquine, but, to prevent occasional cases of par acetamol overdosage, it is not advisable to give methamphetamineionine concurrently with paracet amol to patients who are taking paracetAMol therapeutically.

Quinine-Induced Hepatotoxicity
TLDR
Documented hepatotoxicity has occurred with quinidine, the optical isomer of quinine, according to a 57-year-old Native American woman presented with symptoms of nausea, vomiting, generalized myalgia, headache, fever, chills, and rigor. Expand
Effect of chloroquine on some carbohydrate metabolic pathways: contents of GHS, ascorbate and lipid peroxidation in the rat.
Adult male rats were treated intraperitoneally with chloroquine (5 mg/kg/day) for 9 days. A reduction in the fasting plasma glucose level by 17.6% and ascorbic acid by 45% were discernable. TheExpand
Toxic polyneuropathy due to flour contaminated with tricresyl phosphate in China.
TLDR
The o-isomer of TCP is more toxic than the m- or p-isomers and tri-ortho-cresyl phosphate (TOCP) is now a reference chemical for experimental organophosphorus induced delayed neurotoxicity (OPIDN), although it is not an organoph phosphorus pesticide. Expand
Cytochrome P450 2C8 and CYP3A4/5 are involved in chloroquine metabolism in human liver microsomes
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CYP2C8 and CYP3A4/5 are the major enzymes responsible for the chloroquineN-deethylation to DCQ in human liver microsomes. Expand
Relationship between metabolism and cytotoxicity of ortho-phenylphenol in isolated rat hepatocytes.
TLDR
The results indicate that the acute cytotoxicity caused by the high dose of OPP is associated with direct action by the parent compound, and the prolonged depletion of GSH in hepatocytes enhances the cytot toxicity induced by PHQ. Expand
Identification of human cytochrome P450s that metabolise anti-parasitic drugs and predictions of in vivo drug hepatic clearance from in vitro data
TLDR
The results show that it is possible to make in vitro–in vivo predictions of high, intermediate and low CLint drug categories and the identified CYPs for some of the drugs provide a basis for how these drugs are expected to behave pharmacokinetically and help in predicting drug–drug interactions in vivo.
