Lack of effect of chloramphenicol on monoamine, diamine and plasma amine oxidase activities

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Chloramphenicol treatment in rabbits (60 mg/kg i.m. for 5 days) did not affect significantly (P > 0.1) the activities of monoamine oxidase (MAO) or diamine oxidase (DAO) in liver, heart or brain. Plasma amine oxidase (PAO) was not significantly inhibited (P > 0.1) in goats treated with chloramphenicol (60 mg/kg i.m. for 5 days). Chloramphenicol (2 x 10-3 mol/l) preincubated with rabbit hepatic MAO had no significant effect (P > 0.1) on the enzyme activity.
