Effect of S-adenosyl-L-methionine on thioacetamide-induced liver damage in rats



Effect of S-adenosyl-L-methionine on thioacetamide-induced liver damage in rats



Toxicology Letters 32(1-2): 97-106



S-Adenosyl-L-methionine (Ado-met) administration to rats significantly improved liver necrosis induced by thioacetamide (TAA) as evidenced by reduction of TAA-elevated catalytic activity of serum aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALAT). Ado-met, however, was not effective in reduction of catalytic activity of serum alkaline phosphatase (ALP) which increased as a consequence of TAA administration. Histologic analysis of the livers supported the biochemical data. Hepatocellular damage was evident from the first day of TAA treatment at daily (i.p.) doses of 50 mg/kg body wt. Maximal necrosis was apparent after 3 days of TAA administration. When rats were treated once a day, for 3 days with Ado-met (2 mg/kg body wt) as well as with TAA, significant reduction of hepatic necrotic area was observed. A similar effect was obtained when doses of 200 mg/kg body wt. of Ado-met were utilized.
