The effects of iron exposure, on serum iron, serum superoxide dismutase (SOD), a free radical scavenger, and plasma malondialdehyde (MDA), a lipid peroxidation parameter, were investigated in Turkish iron miners, office workers and healthy control subjects. Serum iron levels in both miner and office workers groups were higher than those of healthy controls (p < 0.05). There were higher mean values of plasma MDA levels in both iron miners and office workers compared to controls (p < 0.05). Serum… CONTINUE READING
