Hydroxocobalamin (vit b12a) effectively reduced extent of cyanide poisoning arising from oral amygdalin ingestion in rats

This study investigated the efficacy of hydroxocobalamin in reducing cyanide toxicity arising from amygdalin administration in rats. Amygdalin at its therapeutic dose (20 mg/kg body weight) was co-administered with hydroxocobalamin to rats at two different levels (25 mg/kg and 50 mg/kg body weight) for 14 days. Symptoms of cyanide toxicity in the blood and liver were monitored in the animals and compared with the...
