The erythrocytic glutathione reductase activity was studied among 40 normal and G 6 PD-deficient males without or with intestinal parasitic infection. The results showed that the incidence of vitamin B2 deficiency was significantly higher (chi 2 P less than 0.05) among G 6 PD deficient subjects compared to corresponding incidence obtained with normal. Intestinal parasitism led to deterioration of the B2-status among both the normals and the subjects with G 6 PD deficiency.
