In selected hospitalized patients (9294) with normal serum catalase activity, 7.58 per cent higher (p less than 0.001) serum catalase activity was detected in males than in females. With age, serum catalase activity decreased (slope-0.0683) in males, increased (slope 0.101) in females and did not change in all patients (slope 0.049). Cigarette smoking did not influence serum catalase activity (p greater than 0.05).
