Abstract

Among variuos furocoumarins studied , RBC hemolysis was significantly induced only by Psoralen and 3-CPS, although at higher concentrations than those used for photochemotherapeutic experiments. By pre-irradiating the compounds in methanol, and adding the solution to the RBC, damage on the cell membrane (hemolysis) was observed in various compounds, thus indicating a role of photoproducts in this toxic process.
