Etanidazole is a nitroimidazole drug used for its radiosensitizing properties. Administration of etanidazole results in a decrease of glutathione concentration and inhibits glutathione S-transferase.[1] The result is that tissues become more sensitive to the ionizing radiation used in cancer treatment.
