Mitigation of nitrofurantoin-induced toxicity in the perfused rat liver.

1. Nitrofurantoin is an antimicrobial agent which produces hepatotoxicity caused by the redox cycling of the nitro group and its radical anion. This futile cycling triggers a complex series of events known collectively as oxidative stress. 2. Our goal was to determine treatment strategies which could mitigate nitrofurantoin-induced toxicity in the isolated… CONTINUE READING
