Mean (SD) (n = 6) 129.8 (10.8) 31.2 (2.68) 158.1 (20.4) 4.3 (0.25) 2.4 (0.24) 2.8 (0.26) 308.8 (23.0) 90.5 (5.39)
  1. Plasma lactate dedydrogenase (LDH), aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and creatine phosphokinase (CPK) activities, as well as myocardial mitochondrial reduced glutathione (GSH) level and glutathione reductase (GR), Se-glutathione peroxidase (GPX), and isocitrate dehydrogenase (ICDH) activities, and malodialdehyde (MDA) level were measured in rats immediately after an intraperitoneal injection of saline.
