Therapeutic effect of ascorbic acid on amoxicillin and clavulanic acid-induced lipid peroxidation was carried out in got liver homogenates to investigate the relationship between drug-induced toxicity and druginduced lipid peroxidation.


The level of malondialdehyde, reduced glutathione and nitric oxide were estimated in control, drug-treated, drug-antioxidant treated and the only antioxidant-treated group at two hours and six hours of incubation time.


The level of malondialdehyde in the drug-treated group was found to be increased whereas the level of both reduced glutathione and nitric oxide decreased when compared to control. In the drug-antioxidant treated group, the level of malondialdehyde was found to be reduced whereas the extent of reduced glutathione, nitric oxide increased when compared to the drug-treated group.


The present study established the potential of amoxicillin and clavulanic acid to induce lipid peroxidation. On the other hand, ascorbic acid repressed lipid peroxidation to a substantial level. Lipid peroxidation initiation capability of amoxicillin and clavulanic acid might be a contributing factor for their toxicity.
