Oxidative damage on lymphocyte membranes is increased in patients suffering from acute carbon monoxide poisoning.


Increased oxidative damage seems to be a relevant mechanism in the pathophysiology of patients with an acute carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. We have investigated the degree of membrane oxidative damage through the assessment of lipid peroxidation in circulating lymphocytes from five patients acutely intoxicated by CO. Since mitochondria are a major source… (More)
