Abstract

Objective: Iron burden resulting from ineffective erythropoiesis and multiple transfusions can cause oxidative stress in patients with beta-thalassemia. Here we aimed to examine the total antioxidant and oxidant capacity (TAC and TOC) along with its relation to endogenous antioxidants (bilirubin and uric acid) in patients with beta-thalassemia.
