Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the oxidative stress level and antioxidants such as malondialdehyde (MDA), reduced glutathione (GSH), ischemia modified albumin (IMA), catalase (CAT) and in patients with gout.
Materials and Methods: In the study, blood was collected from a total of 63 individuals, including 30 patients with gout and 33 healthy controls. MDA levels, IMA, GSH and CAT activities in blood serums were measured of patients and control group.
Results: CAT and GSH activity were low in gout patients, and MDA and IMA levels were statistically higher.
Conclusion: In conclusion, this study, low CAT and GSH activity, high MDA and IMA levels showed that oxidative stress may play an active role in patients with gout. Although our study is the first to determine the level of MDA, GSH, IMA and CAT activity in patients with gout, more comprehensive studies are needed to examine oxidative stress and antioxidant enzymes in patients with kidney disease, especially gout.
