BACKGROUND Human obesity is associated with oxidative stress but the factors contributing to the increase of reactive oxygen species (ROS) production remain unknown. We evaluated the association between serum homocysteine concentration, which may increase ROS production, and serum protein carbonyl groups concentration before and after bariatric surgery. METHODS Serum protein carbonyl groups and serum homocysteine concentrations, as well as obesity markers, were compared in 18 obese patients… CONTINUE READING
