The effects of BZ 55 and DBI on blood ATP, blood inorganic phosphorus and capillary-venous blood sugar difference were studied in nine diabetic patients and eight healthy adults. The oral administration of 1g. of BZ 55 caused a decrease in blood inorganic phosphorus and C-V difference in diabetics as well as in nondiabetics. The blood ATP level, however, was raised by BZ 55 administration in diabetic group and lowered in nondiabetic group.
The oral administration of 100mg. of DBI produced usually a slight increase in blood ATP and decreases in blood inorganic phosphorus and in C-V difference. There was no statistically significant difference in these changes between the two groups.
