Cyclophosphamide induced a depletion in liver glutathione (GSH) and high rate of lipid peroxidation. GSH depletion was evident from 20 min onwards and the maximum depletion was observed at 3 hr post treatment. Lipid peroxidation was significant only after the maximum depletion of GSH. Pretreatment with either MRC or WR-77913 individually, or in combination could prevent the depletion of GSH and induction of lipid peroxidation after cyclophosphamide treatment.
