Objective: Pregnancy is characterized with hyperlipidemia and mild oxidative stress. Paraoxonase1 is an antioxidant enzyme which is also suggested to be involved in lipoprotein metabolism. Our aim was to investigate serum paraoxonase and arylesterase activities and their relation with the lipid profile and oxidative-antioxidative system parameters throughout normal pregnancy.
