Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Oxidative stress (OS) is described as the imbalance of oxidative and anti-oxidative systems towards oxidants and plays a role in the pathogenesis of GN. In many studies, ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) is identified as a sign of OS. However, it has not yet been studied in patients with primary GN in the literature. In the present study, we aimed to determine the role of IMA in the pathogenesis of primary GN.
