Effects of 5,5'-diphenylhydantoin on the metabolic pathway of thyroid hormone in rats.

Abstract

Treatment of rats with phenytoin (DPH), an anti-epileptic drug, results in lower tissue thyroid hormone (TH) levels and interferes with the metabolic pathway of TH. To test the hypothesis that DPH affects the enterohepatic cycle of TH and, thus, the kinetics of TH turnover, we performed a kinetic experiment (three-compartment analysis) and a steady-state… (More)
