Effect of smoking on lipid profile, lipid peroxidation and antioxidant status in normal subjects and in patients during and after acute myocardial infarction.

A significant increase in malondialdehyde (MDA) concentrations was observed in MI patients, more than in smokers (P<0.05), as compared to control. The plasma… (More)
