Several pharmaceutical agents produce ethanol intolerance, which is often depicted as disulfiram-like reaction. As in the case with disulfiram, the underlying mechanism is believed to be the accumulation of acetaldehyde in the blood, due to inhibition of the hepatic aldehyde dehydrogenases. In the present study, chloramphenicol, furazolidone, metronidazole, and quinacrine, which are reported to produce a disulfiram-like reaction, as well as disulfiram, were administered to Wistar rats and the… Expand
