Possible Interaction: Penicillamine and Vitamin B 6


Vitamin B 6

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

[6] The d-penicillamine inhibits pyridoxine , lowering seizure threshold, or it may be related to the possible “paradoxical reaction” to excess copper mobilization.[6]
d-penicillamine … pyridoxine , lowering seizure threshold, or it may be related to the possible “paradoxical reaction” to excess copper mobilization.[6] Copper deposition in brain causes …, gliosis, laminar necrosis, spongy degeneration, and cavitation causing focal seizure activity,[6] which probable explains seizures as the initial presentation in our patient.

Abstract The erythrocyte alanine aminotransferase (Ala-AT) activity, measured in vitro , of rheumatoid arthritis patients under treatment with penicillamine was markedly stimulated by the addition of excess pyridoxal-5′-phosphate ( PLP).
This indicates that penicillamine can produce a deficiency of vitamin B 6 , possibly by reacting chemically with the coenzyme PLP or by inhibiting PLP synthesis.

We have used the D-isomer of penicillamine rather than the racemic (DL) mixture because L-penicillamine antagonizes pyridoxal phosphate and is known to be toxic in experimental animals (Aposhian and Aposhian, 1959).

Examination of cellular vitamin B6 compounds showed that pyridoxal 5'-phosphate was markedly decreased when L-penicillamine was present, in agreement with the probable reaction of the inhibitor with the coenzyme.
The following findings indicated that this was because L-penicillamine caused vitamin B6 deficiency in KG980; (a) addition of excess pyridoxine significantly reversed the inhibition, (b) comparison of the growth with various concentrations of pyridoxine showed that the vitamin requirement became higher upon addition of L-penicillamine.

In addition, D-penicillamine inactivates pyridoxal-5-phosphate and gives rise to biochemical changes typical of pyridoxine deficiency in experimental animals (Asatoor, 1964) and in man (Jaffe, Altman, and Merryman, 1964).

Penicillamine was inhibitory at relatively low concentrations; its action was prevented by pyridoxal phosphate.

Therefore the adverse effect of a diet free of vitamin B6 is distinctly increased by additional application of a vitamin antagonist such as D-penicillamine for instance.

By itself, DPA produced a transitory decrease in both food consumption and body weight, which could be prevented with vitamin B6.

Simultaneous injection of vitamin B6 with D-penicillamine produced a recovery in the lowering vitamin B6 levels induced by D-penicillamine in serum and liver and enhanced the urinary excretion of Cu, but did not influence the serum content of Cu.

Penicillamine and thiosemicarbazide, at doses which lowered brain levels of pyridoxine by only 10%, increased seizure risk.
