Abstract

Purpose: The aim of this study was to study paraoxonase and arylesterase activities along with oxidative status parameters, and to find out whether there is any increased susceptibility to atherogenesis, which might be reflected with increased oxidative stress and decreased serum paraoxonase/arylesterase activity in beta-thalassemia major (BTM) patients.
