[Article in Russian]


A single administration of ethionamide (LD50) to guinea pigs causes an inhibition of p-hydroxylation and N-demethylation in the liver. Sodium succinate favours the activation and, when it is used for correction of the ethionamide toxic effect, it normalizes the above-mentioned processes.
