Objective. Oxidative stress has been suggested to have a pivotal role in the development of cardiovascular disease in kidney transplant patients (KTPs). The effects of fluvastatin on oxidative status in KTPs have not been well evaluated. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of fluvastatin on oxidative status by investigating erythrocyte superoxide dismutase (SOD), erythrocyte glutathione peroxidase (GPx), serum paraoxonase (PON1), and serum arylesterase (ARE), along with lipid peroxidation products, serum malonldialdehyde, and apolipoprotein B malondialdehyde (ApoB MDA).
