Özet

Purpose: Myocardial damage mediated by oxidative stress during acute myocardial infarction (MI) has been suggested as an obstructive factor on recovery after an MI. 8-Hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) is a marker for oxidative DNA damage; superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (G-Px) are major antioxidant enzymes. We determined changes in the plasma level of 8-OHdG and activities of SOD and G-Px in patients with MI and examined the relations between those changes and other cardiac markers.
