“Toxic effect of LSD-25 on a culture of kidney cells from Cercopithecus aethiops monkeys.aethiops.”.
Archiwam Medycyny Sadowej i Kryminologii (Warsawa). 1971;21(2):89-92.
The toxic influence of LSD-25 on cultures of kidney cells of the Cercopithecus aethiops monkey was investigated. The sensitivity of the monolayer culture to the drug was found to be weak, and the growth of the culture following administration of large doses of LSD-25 was inhibited. The activity of acid phosphatase increased and that of monoamine oxidase decreased as a result of large doses of the drug. It is sug-gested that LSD-25 has an effect on the more rapid aging of cells under conditions of culture. No differences in histochemical reactions were observed between direct and indirect culture.
