Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase plasma levels as a new useful clinical biomarker of oxidative stress in patients with end-stage renal disease.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES We wanted to study the imbalance between antioxidant and oxidant generating systems resulting in oxidative stress (SOX) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD). We suggest that the plasma levels of Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (Cu/Zn SOD) may be a new, sensitive marker of SOX in this population. DESIGN AND METHODS We measured the levels of Cu/Zn SOD… (More)
