Protective and alleviative effects from 4 cysteine-containing compounds on ethanol-induced acute liver injury through suppression of oxidation and inflammation.

In vivo protective and alleviative effects of s-allyl cysteine (SAC), s-ethyl cysteine (SEC), s-methyl cysteine (SMC), and s-propyl cysteine (SPC) against alcohol-induced hepatotoxicity in Balb/cA mice were studied. In the preventive study, SAC, SEC, SMC, or SPC, each agent at 1 g/L, was added into the drinking water for 3 wk, and the mice were then treated… CONTINUE READING
