Table 3

Concentrations of lipid peroxidation products: thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) and conjugated dienes (CD); activities of antioxidant enzymes: superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPx), and catalase (CAT); concentration of reduced glutathione (GSH), as well as creatine kinase (CK) activity in healthy volunteers (Control I), patients with cerebral concussion (Control II), and patients with injured cervical part of the spinal cord before and 7days after the surgery (studied group).
