Objective -Acute coronary syndromes (ACS) encompass a continuum of cardiac ischaemic events, ranging from unstable angina pectoris (UA) to ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). Oxidative stress may play an important role in the pathogenesis of acute coronary diseases. In the present study, we examined the associations between lipid and protein susceptibility to oxidation and total sialic acid (SA) and antioxidant status and the severity of ACS as determined by having UA, non-STEMI or STEMI.
