It has been hypothesized that antioxidant and oxidant capacities may be related to the severity of obstructive lung impairment in patients with sulfur mustard (SM)-induced lung injuries. Our study was designed to measure the level of glutathione (GSH) and malondialdehyde (MDA) activities in patients intoxicated with SM and to evaluate the relationship(More)
AIM Pulmonary complications are known to occur in over half the patients exposed to sulphur mustard. Many studies have focused on the clinical complications, often ignoring the pathogenesis of sulphur mustard. Also, the reasons for the variable severity of lung injuries caused by sulphur mustard are unclear. Hence, the current study was performed to(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The reduced alpha1-antitrypsin (AAT) activities of some phenotypes have been suggested as contributing to the development of respiratory diseases. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred patients with respiratory disease following exposure to sulfur mustard were divided into two groups of 50 based on their respiratory symptoms and compared(More)
BACKGROUND The present study sought to evaluate the prophylactic effect of bethametazone on sulfur mustard (SM)-induced ocular morphometric damage in the rabbit eye. METHODS Twenty five healthy New Zealand white rabbits were divided into 4 groups of normal (not exposed to SM or solution), solution (exposed to solution), SM (exposed to SM), and(More)
