Abstract OBJECTIVE: To study the effects of salvianolic acid A on content of cytochrome P450,cytochrome b5 and CYP1A2, CYP2E1 activities of rats. METHOD: The rats were randomly divided into two groups and each group contained 5 male rats and 5 female rats. One is control group, another is dosage group. The dosage group was injected salvianolic acid A into a rat tail vein at doses of 20 mg x kg(-1) x d(-1) for 5 days. The control group was injected placebo into a rat tail vein at the same doses as the dosage group. The content of cytochrome P450 and cytochrome b5 of rats were assayed using UV and CYP1A2, CYP2E1 activities were evaluated using probe substrate. RESULT: After salvianolic acid A was injected into rats tail vein for 5 days, the total content of cytochrome P450 and cytochrome b5 and CYP1A2 and CYP2E1 activities have no statistical significance of differences than the control group. CONCLUSION: Salvianolic acid A has no effects on CYP1A2 and CYP2E1 activities, indicating that there is no internation between salvianolic acid A and the drugs metabolized by CYP1A2 or CYP2E1.
