Markers of pro-/antioxidant balance and of oxidative stress
Patients (n= 44) Healthy controlsa P-valueb
TEAC (mmol TE/L) 1.24 ± 0.16 1.60 ± 0.16 < 0.001
Peroxides (mmol/L) 0.90 ± 0.27 0.72 ± 0.10 0.006
Malondialdehyde (μmol/L) 83.7 ± 33.5 14.3 ± 4.1 < 0.001

Data are means ± SDs. aDetermined in healthy controls from our staff (n = 89 for TEAC, n = 21 for peroxides, and n = 33 for malondialdehyde). bfor group comparison (Mann–Whitney U test). TEAC: trolox equivalent antioxidant capacity; TE: trolox equivalents.
