Oxidative stress in smoking pregnant women is assumed to be enhanced by oxidants and free radicals of tobacco smoke. Inactivation and removal of reactive oxygen species depend on reactions involving in the antioxidant defence system. The aim of our study was to recognise the efficiency of enzymatic antioxidants in erythrocytes of women smoking during pregnancy. Therefore we measured activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and catalase (CAT) in red blood cells… CONTINUE READING
