Lead is one of the heavy metals that is toxic for human and animals. Several reports indicate that peroxidation damage of tissues in laboratory animals are enhanced in acute toxicity from transition metal ions such as copper, iron, mercury and lead. In this study sera malondialdehyde (MDA), erythrocyte reduced glutathione(GSH), sera vitamin C and E values were determined in 30 male subjects occupationally exposed to lead 20 healthy male subjects were used as control group.
