Abstract

This paper presents comparative data on the antioxidant and membrane-protective activities of an extract from the brown seaweed Laminaria japonica and the commercial drug Legalon. It was shown that intoxication with carbon tetrachloride was accompanied by the exhaustion of the antioxidant defense system of erythrocytes, an increase in their dimensional characteristics, and a change in the phospholipids to neutral lipids ratio. The Laminaria extract appeared to be more efficient than Legalon in the restoration of the lipid component of erythrocyte membranes and the removal of toxic stress.
