The modulation of CCl4-induced hepatotoxicity in response to alkyl sulfides and alkyl ethers including allyl disulfide (ADS), allyl sulfide (AS), allyl ether (AE), propyl disulfide (PDS), propyl sulfide (PS), propyl ether (PE) and butyl sulfide (BS) was studied. Whereas pretreatment of rats with either ADS or AS (50 mg/kg, 7 days) blocked a CCl4-induced increase in plasma alanine aminotransferase (ALT) activity by 91 and 56%, respectively, AE, PDS, PS, PE or BS treatment enhanced CCl4-induced… CONTINUE READING
