The pharmacological action and possible therapeutic uses of some recently developed synthetic, non-toxic dihydroquinoline-type antioxidants were studied. The effect of the lipid-soluble 6,6-methylene-bis (2,2,4-trimethyl-1,2-dihydroquinoline) (n = 1, 2 or 3) (MTDQ) on carbon-tetrachloride-induced acute liver injuries was investigated, and that of the water-soluble 6,6-methylene-bis (2,2-dimethyl-4-methanesulfonic acid sodium-1,2-dihydroquinoline) (MDS) on galactosamine-induced acute liver injuries in CFLP mice (Lati, Hungary). MTDQ was found suitable for the prevention of acute CCl4-induced liver injuries and MDS for that of acute galactosamine-induced liver injuries. Disappearance or significant diminution of the morphological signs and lesions of lipid degeneration and centrolobular liver necrosis, decrease of serum GOT activities, and also inflammatory changes induced by galactosamine were observed.
