1. At premature birth, man and animals are exposed to relatively high oxygen levels, compared with intra-uterine conditions, at a time when their antioxidant enzyme (AOE) system is still immature. Using the chick embryo as a study model, we investigated changes in the AOE system in response to hyperoxia applied at different time points during the incubation period. Relations between hyperoxia and AOE activity were studied in selected organs (brain, heart, liver, intestine and lungs) of… CONTINUE READING
