Özet

Background/Goals: The etiology and pathogenesis of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases are still poorly understood. Oxidative stress takes place in the pathogenesis of ulcerative colitis (UC) and advanced oxidation protein products (AOPP) are accepted as a novel marker of oxidative stress. There are no data concerning whether AOPP may be used as a simple serum marker to assess the disease activity, predict severity of the disease course in UC.
