The effects of reduced glutathione were vastly discussed and investigated in the past few years. its protective effect against free radicals and drug metabolites is one of the highlights. In this paper, the ability of reduced glutathione (30mg/kg/wt) in preventing the development of hepatotoxicity during the time of administration of isoniazid/INH (50mg/kg/wt) and rifampicin/RPM (30mg/kg/wt) was examined on 24 male rabbits weighing 3000±500 g everyday for 7 days.
