The effects of hyperoxia and the response of oxygen free radical defense enzymes in the lung and extracellular environment of the lung were measured in Zn-deficient rats. Although lung was the target organ as indicated by the increased lung:body weight ratio in all hyperoxia-exposed rats regardless of dietary regimen, 85% oxygen exposure seemed to impose a stress on the whole animal as indicated by decreased feed intake and body weight in ad libitum-fed rats. Hyperoxia exposure superimposed on… CONTINUE READING
