Effects of phenobarbital on metabolism and toxicity of diclofenac sodium in rat hepatocytes in vitro.

Diclofenac sodium (DF-Na) was a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug used in various aspects of inflammatory disease. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of phenobarbital (PB) on metabolism and toxicity of DF-Na in vitro and explore the potential mechanism of DF-Na induced hepatotoxicity. Rat hepatocytes were isolated by a modification of… CONTINUE READING
