Title Pyrazole as an antidote for ethylene glycol poisoning.
Bibliographic information May 1974, Vol.28, No.2, p.320-322. 12 ref.
Abstract Pyrazole, a potent alcohol dehydrogenase inhibitor, given intraperitoneally to mice in a single dose of 300mg/kg, increased significantly the LD50 of orally-administered ethylene glycol. It appears to act like ethanol in preventing conversion of glycol to more toxic metabolites. Although pyrazole is a toxic chemical and may cause damage in several organs in experimental animals, the compound has been used in experimental studies in man; its use on a one-time basis in life-threatening poisoning might be an acceptable risk.
