Özet

Atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases are among the major causes of mortality in renal transplant (RT) patients. Oxidative stress plays an important role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. In this study, we investigated the role of asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) along with oxidized LDL (oxLDL) and antioxidized LDL (anti-oxLDL) on the extent and progression of atherosclerosis measured by carotid artery intima-media thickness (CA-IMT) in RT patients.
