OBJECTIVES Knowledge about the role of oxidative stress in human diseases, including cardiovascular system disorders, emphasizes the need for reliable markers of oxidative stress. Here, we evaluated the levels of the novel marker ischemia-modified albumin (IMA), albumin-adjusted IMA (adj-IMA), and the IMA/serum albumin ratio (IMAR) in patients with chronic ischemic heart failure (CIHF). METHODS A total of 55 patients with CIHF and 40 age- and sex-matched healthy individuals were included in… CONTINUE READING
