Oxidative stress exerts an important role on the pathophysiological mechanisms of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). This study investigated oxidative stress in patients with SLE and its correlation with disease activity, corticosteroid therapy, and liver function biomarkers. The study included 58 patients with SLE and 105 healthy volunteers. Patients showed oxidative stress increase evaluated by tert-butyl hydroperoxide-initiated chemiluminescence (CL-LOOH), advanced oxidation protein… CONTINUE READING
