The indices of endogenous oxidative and antioxidative processes in plasma from schizophrenic patients: The possible role of oxidant/antioxidant imbalance
There is great evidence in recent years that oxygen free radicals play an important role in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. The present study was performed to assess the changes in plasmaExpand

Evidence that the activities of erythrocyte free radical scavenging enzymes and the products of lipid peroxidation are increased in different forms of schizophrenia
In order to examine antioxidant status and lipid peroxidation in schizophrenia patients, activities of three free radical scavenging enzymes (superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidaseExpand
