Superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity has been estimated in serum and leukocytes isolated from adults and children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), Hodgkin's disease (HD) and neuroblastoma. Superoxide dismutase levels in leukocytes isolated from adult patients with HD, ALL and NHL were significantly higher than the corresponding control values. Serum SOD activity of adult patients with ALL and NHL was significantly decreased compared to the normal value, while… Expand
Antioxidant Status, Erythrocyte Membrane Lipid Peroxidation and Osmotic Fragility in Malignant Lymphoma Patients
TLDR
The present data suggest that hematological complications and autoimmune hemolytic anemia might be attributed to the oxidative stress produced by malignant lymphomas. Expand
Lipid peroxidation and antioxidant system in the blood of patients with Hodgkin's disease.
TLDR
The antioxidant system is impaired in Hodgkin's disease due to the abnormal metabolism of trace elements and antioxidant enzymes, and levels in plasma and erythrocytes were significantly higher in patients. Expand
Prognostic significance of serum superoxide dismutase activity in patients with gastric cancer
TLDR
It is suggested that the reduction in serum SOD activity in elderly patients may be due to weakness of the antioxidant defense of the host, thus resulting in a poor prognosis in those with far-advanced (stage IV) gastric cancer. Expand
Adenosine deaminase, xanthine oxidase, superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase activities and malondialdehyde levels in the sera of patients with head and neck carcinoma.
TLDR
Serum adenosine deaminase activity is found to be significantly increased in the patient group and may be helpful in the diagnosis and follow-up of head and neck cancers, suggesting a role of free radicals in the etiology of cancer. Expand
Influence of polychemotherapy on the antioxidant levels and lipid peroxidation in patients with lymphoproliferative diseases
The purpose of the present study was to compare the oxidative stress parameters such as the extent of lipid peroxidation and the status of antioxidants in patients with lymphoproliferative diseases.Expand
Oxidative stress-Antioxidant status in Egyptian Lymphoma patients.
TLDR
It is suggested that MDA level was elevated in NHL and HL patients, before and after treatment on comparison to that of controls, but SOD, GSH levels were decreased before and before treatment at all. Expand
Cytostatic therapy and blood antioxidants/prooxidants balance in acute myeloblastic leukemia patients
TLDR
It is established that polyChemotherapy leads to the consumption of antioxidants and increased lipid peroxidation in AML patients and an appropriate supplementation with antioxidants at the end of the polychemotherapy treatment could be considered. Expand
Evaluation Of Antioxidant Defense In Patients With Colorectal Carcinoma.
TLDR
The results indicate that the tested antioxidant enzyme activity of glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase is increased in patients diagnosed with colorectal cancer compared to the control group. Expand
Redox status of dogs with non-hodgkin lymphomas. An ESR study.
TLDR
Free radical and antioxidant parameters in healthy dogs and dogs with non-Hodgkin lymphomas and lymphoma cases showed an impaired antioxidant status and tumors with low oxidative burst capacity and higher reduced/oxidized glutathione ratio responded better to chemotherapy. Expand
Polymorphisms in the oxidative stress genes, superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase and catalase and risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
TLDR
Analysis of genetic variation in oxidative stress genes in two lymphoma case-control studies suggests a possible role for oxidative stress in the risk of NHL. Expand

Deficiency of erythrocyte superoxide dismutase and catalase activities in patients with malignant lymphoma and acute myeloid leukemia.
TLDR
Observations indicate that a deficiency of erythrocyte SOD and catalase activities is caused by cancer and varies with the type of the cancer. Expand
Elevated serum manganese superoxide dismutase in acute leukemias.
TLDR
The serum levels of manganese-superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD) in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and acute lymphoids leukemia (ALL) correlated well with serum lactate dehydrogenase values, and may serve as a measure of the activity of the disease. Expand
Leucocyte superoxide dismutase levels in acute and chronic leukemias.
TLDR
The absence of relationship between the increase in SOD level and various clinical parameters suggests that this increase is the result of a disturbed gene expression in the stem cells, and the effect of the chemotherapy leading to the normalization of the SOD levels is of interest. Expand

There was no apparent difference in enzyme activities between the different histological types of lymphoma. Expand

TLDR
In models where physiological differences may account for variations in effectiveness of PAH to induce mammary cancer, SOD activity is inversely correlated with breast cancer susceptibility and support the hypothesis that cancer susceptibility may be partially mediated through reactive free radical oxygen intermediates.
