The aim of the present study was to investigate the susceptibility of low density lipoprotein (LDL) and red blood cell membranes (RCM) from liver cirrhotic patients and control subjects, to the peroxidative stress, induced in vitro by phenylhydrazine. The susceptibility to peroxidation was determined by measuring the formation of the thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) after incubation with phenylhydrazine. Moreover the levels of cholesterol (C) and phospholipid (PL) were evaluated… CONTINUE READING
