Antioxidants and Protein Carbonyls in Bronchoalveolar Lavage Fluid of Children: Normal Data

Abstract

Antioxidant-oxidant imbalances in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BAL) are thought to contribute to oxidative stress in respiratory disease. However, normal reference ranges for BAL antioxidants and oxidized proteins in children are not available. In this study, we recruited 124 children attending for elective surgery for a noninflammatory condition; 83 were… (More)
