1 To analyze the effect of lecithinized superoxide dismutase (SOD) on superoxide accumulation after traumatic brain injury (TBI) in rats, we studied the SOD activity by NBT-reducing method and the expression of Cu,Zn-SOD mRNA by Northern blot analysis.

2 These results support the hypothesis that superoxide anions may play an important role in the development of brain edema after TBI, and that leciyhinized SOD appears to prevent brain edema through a protective effect against superoxide anions. Superoxides superoxide dismutase 1 Rattus norvegicus
