Cigarette smoke has been found to induce the hemolysis of rabbit erythrocytes. The particulate phase had more profound effect than the gas phase. Neither free radical scavengers such as ascorbic acid, uric acid and water-soluble vitamin E analogue nor antioxidant enzymes such as catalase and superoxide dismutase suppressed the cigarette smoke-induced hemolysis, suggesting that free radicals, hydrogen peroxide, and superoxide were not the active species.
