Table 2 Markers of Oxidative Stress in Schizophrenics and Controls

From: Inter-relationship of plasma markers of oxidative stress and thyroid hormones in schizophrenics

  Schizophrenics Controls p values
MDA (nMol/ml) 9.5 ± 3.0 6.5 ± 1.9 < 0.01*
TPP (μMol H2O2/L) 16.5 ± 1.2 10.1 ± 0.5 < 0.01*
TAP (μMol Trolox equiv./L) 975 ± 140 1300 ± 196 < 0.01*
OSI (%) 1.7 ± 0.8 0.8 ± 0.3 < 0.01*
NO (μMol/L) 17.8 ± 6.4 24.7 ± 5.5 < 0.01*
N 30 25.  
  1. MDA = malondialdehyde. OSI = oxidative stress index
  2. TPP total plasma peroxides. NO = nitric oxide
  3. TAP = total antioxidant potential. N = number of subjects used in the study
  4. * = significantly different from controls
