Sodium Benzoate

Lucane Pharma SA

Description: Sodium benzoate is a nitrogen scavenger drug that can be used in hyperammonemic conditions. It is first conjugated by coenzyme A to form benzoyl CoA, which then conjugates with glycine to form hippurate, which, in turn, is rapidly excreted by the kidneys. One mole of hippurate contains one mole of waste nitrogen.
