In pemphigus vulgaris, the increased production of reactive oxygen species from activated neutrophils decreases concentrations of antioxidant vitamins and enzymes in plasma and red blood cells (RBC), resulting in oxidative stress. We compared lipid peroxidation, a measure of reactive oxygen species production, antioxidant vitamins, reduced glutathione (GSH), glutathione peroxide (GSH-Px), and catalase enzyme activity in blood samples obtained from 18 nonsmoking pemphigus vulgaris patients and… CONTINUE READING
