Özet

Objectives: This study investigated the effects of estrogen-only therapy on lipid profile (through susceptibility of low density lipoproteins to oxidation) and on oxidant-antioxidant parameters in surgical menopausal women. PON genotypes are also evaluated considering that they may be associated with the personal differences observed in antioxidant effects induced by estrogen.
