Possible Interaction: Ethanol and Noscapine



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Further, noscapine and ethanol coexposure produced a more pronounced elevation in lipid peroxidation and the glutathione levels also decreased significantly.
Our results indicate that the combination dosage of noscapine and ethanol antagonised the ethanol-induced elevation of cytochrome P-450 levels.
The inhibition of glutathione-S-transferase (GST) as well as lowering of cytochrome P-450 suggests that the biotransformation of noscapine and ethanol is significantly altered following acute coexposures.
We speculate on the basis of our results that the significant enhancement of lipid peroxidation on combination dosage of noscapine and ethanol is a consequence of depletion of glutathione to certain critical levels.
