BACKGROUND During inspiration the lung is exposed to numerous oxidants and therefore has developed a system of antioxidant defense. This organ, besides the liver, is the major source of glutathione (GSH) metabolism, from which type II pneumocytes are metabolically the most active cells. MATERIAL/METHODS To analyze oxidative stress, rats were exposed to… CONTINUE READING
