Evaluation of isoniazid-oxidative reactions in mice model
in vivo oxidative stress of isoniazid
In this study the anti-tubercular drug; isoniazid (INH) was investigated for their adverse effect; the oxidative stress. This effect was evaluated by using mice model, at the dose of 151 mg/kg. We found that oxidative stress induced by INH is associated with lipid peroxidation expressed by the increase in the level of MDA from 76.9 ± 1.74 to 79.61 ± 2.67 nmol/g tissue. The oxidative stress of INH is accompanied by a decrease in reduced GSH level (from 79.9 ± 12 μmol / mg to 68.48 ± 4.28 μmol / mg compared to of the control group). After treatment with INH at 151 mg/kg, a decrease in CAT activities occurred compared to control (2.53 ± 0.39 U/mg Pr vs 5.07 ± 0.73 U/mg Pr).
