Abstract

Objectives: The aim of this study is to evaluate oxidative protein damage (OPD) by investigating protein carbonyl (PCO) and nitrotyrosine (NT) levels, oxidative stress by total thiol (T-SH), erythrocyte glutathione (GSH) and nitric oxide (NO) levels in women receiving hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
