It is generally accepted that the uremic state of patients with end-stage renal disease is highly pro-inflammatory and pro-oxidant. Moreover, the contact with the dialyzer’s membrane activates the leucocytes and further increases the inflammation and oxidative stress. Therefore, numerous approaches have been proposed for reduction of oxidative stress in hemodialysed patients, from antioxidant therapy through diet rich in natural antioxidants to the improvement of dialyser’s membrane. The changes in the oxidative status of hemodialysed patients, which resulted from above mentioned interventions, were assessed by different methods, some of them similar to those included in our study.
Our comparative study provides a new insight to the past and future studies of oxidative stress research, especially in chronically hemodialysed patients.
