Effect of the bioflavonoid silymarin on the in vitro activity and expression of superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme.

Abstract

Superoxide dismutase activity and expression of the erythrocytes and lymphocytes of patients suffering from chronic alcoholic liver disease and those of healthy controls were investigated after in vitro incubation with silymarin. It was concluded that silymarin treatment in a concentration achievable by in vivo treatment (10 micrograms/ml) significantly… (More)
