Abstract

Oxidative stress has been recognized to be responsible for pulmonary tissue damage. Having in mind the important role of iron as a catalyser of the production of some oxidants, we examined the content of this transition metal in pulmonary tissue of rabbits with experimental emphysema induced by a hypercholesterolemic diet Pulmonary emphysema was pathohistologically confirmed. Lung iron content was quantified by atomic absorptive spectrophotometry. For this study three groups of ten rabbits each were used: C - a controlgroup fed on the usual diet for this species, O - a control group fed on an oil - containing diet, and Ch - an experimental group fed on a hypercholesterolemic diet. After two-months treatment lung iron content was significantly (p < 0.05) decreased in group Oh and highly significantly (p < 0.01) decreased in group O compared to group C. In comparison with group O lung iron content was highly significantly (p < 0.01) increased in group Ch. Our findings indicate a possible role for iron in the pathogenesis of pulmonary emphysema.
