Effect of Glutathione and Some Other Substances on the Oxygen Dissociation Curve of Hemoglobin and Experimental Therapy of Hemorrhagic Shock with Solutions Enriched with Glutathione

In recent years some very significant studies have been published demonstrating the important role of reduced glutathione (GSH) in the metabolism of the red blood cell and also its function in protecting hemoglobin from irreversible oxidation to methemoglobin. Glutathione also appears to play an important role in the specific function of hemoglobin, i.e. the mediation of oxygen transport from the atmospheric air to the tissues.
