Özet

Objective: Oxidative mechanisms are currently discussed as playing a crucial role in the genesis of inflammatory lung diseases. We aimed to evaluate the oxidant-antioxidant balance in the pathogenesis and activity of sarcoidosis and to search if the change in the level of PON can be taken as an activity marker.
