The Dynamics of Glutathione Species and Ophthalmate Concentrations in Plasma from the VX2 Rabbit Model of Secondary Liver Tumors
Ophthalmate (OA) concentration in plasma from the VX2 rabbit model. The concentration of OA was measured in plasma from rabbits 2 weeks before tumor implantation and 2 weeks after tumor implantation. Levels of OA were similar in rabbits from the experimental group before tumor implantation when compared to the control (sham) group (, one-sided independent -test). In contrast, levels of OA were significantly higher in the experimental group when compared to the sham group after tumor implantation (, one-sided independent -test). Furthermore, levels of OA were significantly higher in the experimental group in the state of tumor growth when compared to the state of health (, paired -test).
