Protein Carbonyls and Lipid Peroxidation Products as Oxidation Markers in Preterm Infant Plasma: Associations with Chronic Lung Disease and Retinopathy and Effects of Selenium Supplementation

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine whether protein carbonyls and the lipid peroxidation product malondialdehyde (MDA) are elevated in plasma from very low birth weight (<1500 g) infants, whether they are affected by selenium supplementation, and whether they are associated with poor respiratory outcome or retinopathy. The study group comprised 173… (More)
