Glutathione is a key factor in intracellular antioxidant defense mechanisms. We postulated that it might modulate the adaptational response of the fetus to a higher oxygen environment after birth. Therefore, we determined total glutathione (GSH + GSSG) and non-protein sulfhydryl (-SH) content in cord blood RBC hemolysates, and sequential values in blood(More)
In addition to its hematopoietic effects, erythropoietin causes an increased release of endothelin-1 and the stimulation of angiogenesis and thereby it may have possible role in development of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Our objective was to determine if an association exists between recombinant human erythropoietin (rhEPO) treatment and the(More)
Magnesium is the element with the second highest concentration in the body and is found almost entirely in the intracellular compartment. The small serum component gives a poor representation of the active, physiologic state of the metal. This state is assessed much better by measuring ionized magnesium in the serum, which can now be performed with a(More)
