The effect of thymosin F5 injection on the erythrocyte glutathione levels were investigated in the rabbits fed 2% cholesterol diet for 4 weeks. Although the cholesterol rich diet caused a significant decrease in erythrocyte glutathione levels, erythrocyte lipid peroxide levels were increased considerably.
