AIMS To determine the level of oxidative stress and cell damage as a result of exposure to O(2) at birth. METHODS Using glutathione S transferase (GST) as an indicator of oxidative stress, GST activity in cord blood was compared with that in samples taken three hours after birth. Twenty four prematurely born infants and eight full term infants were studied. To test whether stronger effects occur under less favourable conditions, the neonates were divided in three groups: healthy premature… CONTINUE READING
