At a basis of many pathologic reactions lie disturbances in balance between production of free radicals and antioxidant organism capability. In our study we evaluate antioxidant capability of saliva, as a Ferric Reducing Ability of Plasma (FRAP). 74 pupils selected from active swimmer class (age 11.48 +/- 0.48) were included into our study. Children examination consisted of evaluation of oral cavity Approximated Plate Index (API), tooth decay index (PUW) and %PUW (PUW as a fraction of all… CONTINUE READING
