Effect of the treatment of brucellosis on leukocyte superoxide dismutase activity and plasma nitric oxide level Authors:Karabulut, Aysun Bay; Sönmez, Emine; Bayindir, Yaşar
Publisher and Date:(Sage Publications Inc, 2005)Background: The mechanisms by which brucellae evade intracellular killing by polymorphonuclear leukocytes are incompletely understood. In this study we evaluated changes of leukocyte superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity and plasma total nitrite as an indicator of nitric oxide (NO) levels during brucellosis therapy. Methods: Thirty-two patients with acute brucellosis 27 patients with chronic brucellosis and 30 healthy controls were included in the study. Patients with acute brucellosis were tested ...
