BACKGROUND Free oxygen radicals play an important role in the pathogenesis of many diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, cancer and aging. Several methods were developed for the direct or indirect measurement of oxygen free radical and its byproducts. The free oxygen radicals monitor (FORM) is a novel point-of-care system for the rapid measurement of free oxygen radicals (FORT) in blood. We have carefully evaluated the use of this assay for batch analysis of plasma… CONTINUE READING
