The effectiveness of trental administration was investigated in 94 patients aged 18-65 suffering from hepatitis A or B running a moderate course. The data were analyzed for clinical features, blood red cell diene conjugates and ATPase activity, malonic dialdehyde production, plasma alcohol dehydrogenase. Administration of trental produced a positive action on lipid peroxidation, liver size, jaundice duration. Hospital stay of the patients reduced. Basing on the above observations, the authors advocate wider introduction of trental in management of virus hepatitides.
