Within recent years hydrazine and the methyl substituted hydrazines have come into considerable use as rocket fuels. As a result of this increased production of hydrazines, the possibility of accidental human exposure is of considerable interest. Obvious concern results from the fact that hydrazine had been used as an experimental means of producing fatty liver in experimental animals for many years. On an acute toxicity basis, O’Brien and coworkers (1964) reported comparative lethal dosebo…

THE ROLE OF ACETYLATION IN THE HEPATOTOXICITY OF HYDRAZINE
TLDR
The pathology and the microarray data suggest that the PPARadeficient mice are less capable of meeting the demands of HD-mediated increases in cholesterol and lipid accumulation, consistent with the role of PPARa in removing lipids from liver.

TLDR
The value of pyridoxine or its congener metadoxine as an agent for hastening ethanol metabolism or improving vigilance in acute alcohol intoxication is controversial.
Studies on hydrazine hepatotoxicity. 1. Pathological findings.
TLDR
Pyruvate azine was much less toxic than the parent hydrazine on a molar basis, although some fatty vacuolation was detectable in midzonal hepatocytes, and Pretreatment of animals with phenobarbital or piperonyl butoxide reduced and increased the severity of the fatty liver.
Physiological disposition of 1-acetyl-2-picolinoylhydrazine (NSC68626) in rats bearing Walker carcinosarcoma 256.
TLDR
The uptake by brain was high and comparable to that seen in spleen and tumor and may account for the neurotoxicity and antitumor activity of l-acetyl-2-picolinoylhydrazine.
Plasma Hydrazine Concentrations in Man after Isoniazid and Hydralazine Administration
TLDR
Hydrazine was detected in the plasma of eight healthy male volunteer subjects taking isoniazid for 2 weeks and its presence in human plasma has important toxicological implications.
Physiological Disposition of l-Acetyl-2-picolinoylhydrazine ( NSC 68626 ) in Rats Bearing Walker Carcinosarcoma
TLDR
The uptake by brain was high and comparable to that seen in spleen and tumor and may account for the neurotoxicity and antitumor activity of l-acetyl-2-picolinoylhydrazine.

TLDR
This work implies that pyridoxa exacerbates rather than alleviates the convulsant activity of UDMH and MMH, and thus should not be considered an antidote.

TLDR
The data suggested that in livers of hydrazine-poisoned animals the condensation reaction of citrulline with aspartic acid to give argininosuccinic acid might become rate-limiting in the operation of the ornithine cycle and that the function of several other amino-acid metabolizing systems also might be disturbed.
