In vivo effect of clofazimine in the lysosomal enzyme level and immune complex phagocytosis of mouse peritoneal macrophages.


The effects of clofazimine on macrophages obtained from mice fed by gavage with various drug concentrations were studied. The results obtained demonstrated an increase in the activity of various lysosomal enzymes and in the amount of labeled immune complexes phagocytosed at drug concentrations of 1 mg/kg and 10 mg/kg body weight. This confirms and extends the effects reported by us of clofazimine's action on the lysosomal apparatus.
