Abstract

Much speculation has been offered as to the exact nature and function of glutathione in circulating blood. It has often been considered as playing some part in cell respiration. A study has been made on total and reduced glutathione content of blood in the non-pregnant, in the pregnant during the labor and the parturition including cord blood, during the postpartum four-ten days, and in the toxemias of pregnancy. This offered an opportunity to study the relation between total and reduced glutathione in blood under conditions of varying oxygen content and capacity of systemic blood. The study also included a group of experiments in which blood (with and without fluorides) kept at -3°, 23°, and 38°C. for periods as long as seventy-two hours was analyzed at given intervals for total and reduced glutathione. Oxygen content of the blood was also determined simultaneously with glutathione on the specimen kept at 38°C.
