The authors assume a new type of interaction of the aqueous X-ray contrast substance type adipiodone (Ultrabil 50% Spofa) with immunomodulators of Corynebacterium parvum (CP) and the endotoxin of Shigella dysenteriae (LPS). The fatal type of interaction developed regularly as a result of the concurrent i.v. administration of the X-ray contrast substance adipiodone with the endotoxin of Shigella dys. (LPS) to laboratory animals (mice) which had five days previously a single dose of Corynebacterium parvum (CP). The effect of the interaction was evaluated using LD50 of adipiodone (Ultrabil Spofa) which in interaction with the immunomodulators of CP and LPS was identical as the dose used in diagnostic practice. The authors considered the possible development of "oxygen stress" as a consequence interacting processes and complement activation.
