Inhibition by Aminoacetonitrile of Dimethylnitrosamine Metabolism in the Rat's Liver

Abstract

IT has already been reported that aminoacetonitrile (AAN) protects the rat's liver against the necroses caused by carbon tetrachloride1–3, allylamine4, bromobenzene5, chloroform6 or dimethylnitrosamine6, whereas it is ineffective against necroses induced by thioacetamide and tannic acid5.
