Objectives: Increased oxidative stress has been hypothesized to play an important role in the aging process. A role for oxidative damage in normal aging is supported by studies in experimental animals, but there is limited evidence in humans. To investigate the relationship between the oxidative stress and aging in humans, we determined lipid and protein oxidation in plasma as well as DNA damage in lymphocytes in young and elderly subjects.
