ABSTRACT The purpose of this study was to examine the change in lipid peroxidation and antioxidant enzyme activities in healthy subjects and to evaluate the concentrations of superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase and malondialdehyde, an end product of lipid peroxidation in exercise and smoking. Study included 257 appearently healthy individuals, 133 males and 124 females. In all subjects, malondialdehyde (MDA) levels were analyzed as an indicator of the lipid peroxidation activities. Superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase activities were measured as an indicator of antioxidant activities. Oxidative stress was estimated by the method based on thiobarbituric acid reactivity. Erythrocyte superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) activities were estimated on hemolysates by use of commercial available kits (Randox lab., Dublin, Ireland). For all groups serum lipid peroxidation and erythrocyte SOD and GSH-Px were obtained at the initial and the following periods. Serum MDA level was higher in the elderly than in the children and in the adults. MDA levels were higher in the smoking, acute exercise than their counterparts in the control groups. GSH-Px activity was significantly lower in the acute exercise group, and higher in the trained group than those as controls. SOD decreased in the elderly, smoking and acute exercise groups and increased in trained individuals. There was a significant increase in lipid peroxidation activity and a significant decrease in antioxidant enzyme activity in cases of acute exercise and smoking as well as the elderly.

    ABSTRACT: Background: Emphysema is associated with high incidence of morbidity and mortality. The imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants is thought to play an important role in the pathogenesis of Emphysema. Methods: A total number of 80 subjects comprising of 40 healthy controls and 40 Emphysema cases were studied. In all the subjects, serum levels of malondialdehyde (MDA) as a biomarker of lipid peroxidation and antioxidant whole blood reduced glutathione (GSH) were estimated. Results: The level of whole blood reduced glutathione was significantly decreased in emphysema patients when compared to controls. Serum MDA was significantly increased in Emphysema patients when compared to controls. Conclusion: The presence of increased systemic oxidative stress in emphysema patients seems to be associated with current active smoking and systemic inflammation. The decrease in antioxidants levels appears to be mainly a consequence of increased oxidative stress. This suggests that oxidative stress is likely to be involved in pathogenesis of emphysema.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effects of aerobic and anaerobic exercise on oxidative damage to lipids, proteins and DNA. Fourteen untrained men performed an incremental exercise test to exhaustion and Wingate anaerobic test on two different occasions. Blood samples taken prior to the exercise, immediately post-exercise and 30 min post-exercise were analyzed for plasma malondialdehyde (MDA), plasma protein carbonyls (PC) and plasma 8-hydroxy-2-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG). There were significant main effects for time or exercise type for 8-OHdG levels. After anaerobic exercise, 8-OHdG levels of the 30 min post-exercise were lower than those of the pre-exercise. There was no significant interaction or main effects for plasma MDA and PC levels. These data indicated that acute high-intensity aerobic and anaerobic exercise did not result in either lipid or protein oxidation. However, DNA oxidation was affected by anaerobic exercise.
