Abstract

Patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, spondylosis, coxarthrosis, ankylosing spondylitis, chronic active and chronic alcoholic hepatitis were studied. The plasma vitamin E content remained unchanged. The TBA-reactive plasma substances (malondialdehyde) content of plasma increased in all patients except those with ankylosing spondylitis. Catalase activity of plasma increased in patients of both sexes suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and spondylosis and coxarthrosis, but decreased in the two hepatitis groups. The glutathione-peroxidase activity of RBC (1:9 haemolysate) increased in female rheumatoid arthritis patients and decreased in those suffering from chronic alcoholic hepatitis. The results showed that chronic inflammatory processes affect the rate of lipid peroxidation and the activity of the biological antioxidant mechanism.
