Lipid peroxidation and superoxide dismutase activity in muscle and erythrocytes in Duchenne muscular dystrophy

J Neurol Sci. 1984 Mar;63(3):279-83. doi: 10.1016/0022-510x(84)90150-3.

Abstract

Lipid peroxidation and superoxide dismutase activity in muscle and erythrocytes obtained from patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and controls matched for age and sex were determined. The lipid peroxidation was found to be significantly higher in muscle of the DMD patients but not in erythrocytes. The possible significance of the findings have been considered and discussed.
