It has been hypothesized that antioxidant and oxidant capacities may be related to the severity of obstructive lung impairment in patients with sulfur mustard (SM)-induced lung injuries. Our study was designed to measure the level of glutathione (GSH) and malondialdehyde (MDA) activities in patients intoxicated with SM and to evaluate the relationship between their activity and the severity of pulmonary dysfunction. A total of 250 patients with a history of exposure to a single high dose of SM… CONTINUE READING
