Single doses of iproniazid to Swiss-Webster mice caused a prolonged hypoglycemic reaction and transient biphasic changes in liver triglycerides. In contrast, the same dose of iproniazid in mice on a pyridoxine deficient diet elevated plasma glucose and FFA and liver FFA and TGL. Administration of the same dose of ipioniazid for 30 days elevated liver TGL in Swiss-Webster, C57/B1, DBA, and AKR mice; this effect was reversed in all but the aKR mice when the animals were maintained on a pyridoxine-deficient diet.
