Distinct alterations in fatty acid composition and in the functional state of erythrocyte membranes were detected in 58 patients with sepsis; these alterations were phase-dependent and correlated highly with clinical picture. Considerable increase in content of saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids and a decrease in concentration of lipoproteins were found in erythrocyte membranes under inauspicious conditions of sepsis development. In these patients activities of superoxide dismutase and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase were decreased, while content of SH-groups was lowered and lipid peroxidation was inhibited. The alterations observed in fatty acid composition of erythrocyte membranes and a decrease in metabolic activity of red blood cells may be responsible for hemolysis in patients with sepsis.
