Abstract

A course of acupuncture therapy in patients with locomotor, peripheral nervous system, gynecological, and bronchopulmonary diseases led to complete or partial normalization of nonspecifically changed MDA content, catalase and glutathione peroxidase activities in erythrocytes. SOD activity increased after therapy and did not differ from the control. Acupuncture stabilized disordered LPO processes and improved the antioxidant status of erythrocytes.
