The activity of Cu/Zn-superoxide dismutase and catalase of gastric mucosa in chronic gastritis, and the effect of alpha-tocopherol.


Activity of Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) in gastric mucosa was examined in 12 control subjects and 48 patients with various degree of chronic gastritis.
