It was established that acute poisoning of rats by 1,2-dichloroethane induced considerable changes in lipid peroxidation indices, glutathione content and activity of antioxidant enzymes – superoxidase, catalase, glutathione peroxidase in the brain tissue, erythrocytes and blood plasma. It was shown that nicotinamide in the dose of 200 mg/kg prevented considerable degree of the intoxication caused by 1,2-dichloroethane as well as activation of lipid peroxidation and inhibition of antioxidant defens enzyme activities in tissue of experimental animals.
