Behavior of Oxidative Stress Markers in Alcoholic Liver Cirrhosis Patients
Evaluation of oxidative damage in lipids. Lipid peroxidation determined as malondialdehyde (MDA) content in serum samples from participants of the control group (control) and patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis (ALC), classified according to the Child-Pugh score as Child-Pugh A, Child-Pugh B, or Child-Pugh C. (a) Patients without current alcohol consumption; (b) patients with active alcohol consumption. Each bar represents the mean value ± SEM. For (a): , control group versus ALC group; , control group versus Child-Pugh B subgroup; , control group versus Child-Pugh C subgroup; , Child-Pugh A versus Child-Pugh B subgroup. For (b): , control group versus ALC group; , control group versus Child-Pugh B subgroup.
