Compromised antioxidant status and persistent oxidative stress in lung transplant recipients.

Abstract

Oxidative stress may be a key feature, and hence important determinant, of tissue injury and allograft rejection in lung transplant recipients. To investigate this, we determined the antioxidant status (urate, ascorbate, thiols and alpha-tocopherol) and lipid peroxidation status (malondialdehyde) in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid and blood serum of 19… (More)
