Kulkarni S.R., Ravindra K.P., Dhume C., Rataboli P.V., Rodrigues E., Rodrigues E.E. increased serum homocysteine levels and glutathione-s-transferase activities in alcoholic patients attending de-addiction centre // saratov Journal of medical scientific Research. 2010. vol. 6, № 3. p. 620–624.
the purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of heavy alcohol consumption on serum Malondialdehyde, homocysteine status and glutathione-S –transferase (gSt) activities in alcoholics consuming illicit liquor from lower socioeconomic background attending deaddiction centre. the study was conducted in ninety alcoholic patients consuming illicit liquor from lower socio-economic background attending de-addiction centre and compared to healthy non alcoholic controls (n=90). Serum Malondialdehyde (MDa), serum homocysteine and activities of antioxidant enzyme glutathione-S – transferase (gSt) were estimated. alcoholics consuming illicit liquor attending de-addiction centre displayed significantly higher values of serum MDa concentration (p<0.001), serum homocysteine levels (p<0.001) and serum gSt activities (p<0.001) as compared to their non alcoholic healthy controls belonging to the same socioeconomic background. our results indicate that increase in serum Malondialdehyde (MDa) concentration marker of oxidative stress, serum homocysteine levels and serum glutathione-S-transferase (gSt) activities may enhance the susceptibility to vascular diseases in heavy illicit drinkers with poor nutritional status.
Кулкарни С.Р., Равиндра К.П., Дъюме С., Ратаболи П.В., Родригез Э., Родригез Э.Е. Повышенный уровень сыворотки гомоцистеина и действия глутатиона-с-трансферазы у пациентов с алкогольной зависимостью, посещающих наркологический центр // Саратовский научно-медицинский журнал. 2010. Т. 6, № 3. С. 620–624.
Изучался эффект от интенсивного употребления алкоголя на сыворотку малондиалдегида, состояние гомоцистеина и активность глутатиона-с-трансферазы у алкоголиков из низкого социально-экономического слоя населения, употреблявших запрещенные (несертифицированные) спиртные напитки и посещавших наркологический центр.
В исследовании участвовали 90 пациентов с алкогольной зависимостью, употреблявших запрещенные спиртные напитки и посещавших наркологический центр, и контрольная группа – 90 лиц без алкогольной зависимости. были оценены сыворотка малондиалдегида, сыворотка гомоцистеина и активность антиоксидантфермента глутатиона-с-трансферазы.
у алкоголиков, употреблявших запрещенные спиртные напитки и посещавших наркологический центр, выявлен значительно более высокий показатель концентрации сыворотки малондиалдегида (p<0.001), уровня сыворотки гомоцистеина (p<0.001) и глутатиона-с-трансферазы (p<0.001) в сравнении с контрольной группой, принадлежащей к такому же социально-экономическому слою населения.
Результаты исследования показали, что с увеличением концентрации сыворотки малондиалдегида, сыворотки гомоцистеина и активности антиоксидант-фермента глутатиона-с-трансферазы может усиливаться восприимчивость к сосудистым заболеваниям при интенсивном употреблении запрещенных спиртных напитков и при недостаточном, неполноценном питании.
introduction. alcoholic beverages have been used including negative effects on the cardiovascular system, and abused since the dawn of the history although most such as heart muscle disorders (i.e., cardiomyopathy), people who choose to drink can limit their intake to a heartbeat rhythm irregularities (i.e., arrhythmias), high level that produces no harm to their health or to society, blood pressure (i.e., hypertension), and strokes .
about 34 percent of the population drinks approximately Many epidemiologic studies have shown that alcohol 62 percent of all alcoholic beverages consumed. this consumption and the risk of cardiovascular disease are chronic heavy drinking is a significant factor in the deassociated in a J-shaped fashion [2, 3].
