In the liver of neonate rats and in tissues of adult rats a study was made of the effect of D-penicillamine treatment in vivo on the enzymes of peroxide metabolism, lipid peroxidation and other components. It was found that D-penicillamine primarily acts by decreasing lipid peroxidation, thus stabilizing the membrane.
