Malotilate is a hepatoprotective agent.{46922} It inhibits A23187-induced metabolism of arachidonic acid (Item Nos. 90010 | 90010.1 | 10006607) to the 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) metabolites leukotriene B4 (LTB4; Item No. 20110) and 5-HETE in macrophages isolated from the ascitic fluid of patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis. Malotilate (50 mg/kg) prevents increases in plasma glutamic-pyruvic transaminase (GPT) and glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase (GOT) activities in a rat model of carbon tetrachloride-induced liver injury.{46923} It reduces hepatic deposition of type III procollagen, type IV collagen, laminin, and fibronectin in a rat model of dimethylnitrosamine-induced hepatic fibrosis when administered at a dose of 100 mg/kg.{46924}
