Exposure to cigarette smoke during pregnancy causes redox imbalance and histological damage in lung tissue of neonatal mice.

Abstract

Smoking during pregnancy is directly associated with numerous serious conditions, such as premature birth, low birth weight, and perinatal mortality. We quantitatively evaluated histological inflammatory alterations, oxidative damage by lipid peroxidation, the activity of the antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) in the lungs of… (More)
