Burn trauma increased blood chemiluminescence, while lipopolysaccharide in a dose of 1 mg/kg potentiated this effect, activated LPO, and decreased plasma antioxidant activity. In erythrocytes, superoxide dismutase activity increased, while activity of peroxide-utilizing enzymes decreased. Myeloperoxidase content increased in the lungs and epidermis. The preparation of α-tocopherol, selenium aspartate, and ubiquinone abolished the effect of lipopolysaccharide, but did not modulate the increase in chemiluminescence under the influence of this agent.
