Objective: Inflammation and oxidative stress are the 2 well-known physiopathological processes involved in the onset and progression of atherosclerosis and can play role in the poor prognosis of kidney transplantation. However, there is no satisfactory evidence for their markers to be used for the diagnosis and/or follow-up of cardiovascular disease in daily practice. We aimed to investigate inflammation and oxidative stress markers in kidney transplant recipients long after transplantation.
