We studied the effects of administration of beta-resorcylidene aminoguanidine (RAG) to Wistar strain rats with experimental diabetes mellitus (DM) induced by streptozotocin. The effects studied included antioxidant levels in plasma and the liver, oxidative damage of lipids represented by the formation of substances reacting with thiobarbituric acid (TBARP) and selected biochemical indicators. The administration of RAG did not significantly affect antioxidant status of diabetic rats or hemoglobin glycation and plasma concentration of fructosamine.

We studied the effects of aminoguanidine (AG), beta-resorcylidene aminoguanidine (RAG), DL-penicillamine (PNCA) and captopril on early and advanced glycation of human serum albumin (HSA). We also assessed inhibition of lipid peroxidation by AG and RAG in erythrocytes. Incubation of HSA with D-glucose (20 mM, 37 degrees C for 21 days) led to the formation of Amadori products and fluorescent advanced glycation end-products (AGE).
