Objectives. Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory disease with unknown aetiology. Since various functions of neutrophils are increased in AS, neutrophil activation-mediated oxidative stress may have an important role in the pathogenesis of AS. Therefore, the importance of neutrophil activation as the main source of oxidative stress was investigated in patients with AS.
