|Abstract: ||Following intoxication of sheep with 150 mg/kg body weight of Deisopropylngaione [DIN] intra-peritoneally.
there was impaimient ofthc renal function as depicted by decreases in the glomcrular ﬁltration rate |GFR]. renal
plasma ﬂow [RPF] and tubular transport maximum for glucose [TMG] which were essentially pre-renal in origin.
The mean feed intake, free water intake and urine output also decreased following intoxication ofsheep with DIN.
There were increases in the plasma aspertate transferase [ASTl. alkaline phosphatase [ALP] and plasma creatinine
post exposure to DIN. The mean values for plasma sodium, potassium and chloride concentrations showed no
signiﬁcant differences following intoxication with deisopropylngaione in sheep.|
