Table 2 Oxidative and antioxidative parameters in each group.

From: Increased oxidative stress associated with the severity of the liver disease in various forms of hepatitis B virus infection

  CHB Group Inactive HBsAg Carrier Group Cirrhosis-HBV Group Control Group
TAR (mmol Trolox eq./L) 1.58 (1.16–2.23) 1.62 (1.3–1.98) 1.36 (1.2–1.9)‡ 1.7 (1.46–1.96)
Total peroxide (μmol H 2 O 2 /L) 32.2(18.9–66)* 25.9(6.6–32) 38.5(22.5–59)** 24.8(18.5–31)
OSI (AU) 1.9 (1–3.9)* 1.6 (0.4–2.4) 2.66(1.1–4.9)** 1.4 (1–1.8)
  1. Data were presented as median and range.
  2. ‡ p < 0.008 HBV related cirrhosis vs. inactive HBsAg carriers and control.
  3. * p < 0.001 CHB vs. inactive HBsAg carriers and control.
  4. ** p < 0.001 HBV related cirrhosis vs. inactive HBsAg carriers and control.
  5. Differences were regarded as significant at 0.05/4 in Kruskal-Wallis one-way analysis.
  6. CHB, chronic hepatitis B; HBsAg, hepatitis B surface antigen; HBV, hepatitis B virus; TAR, total antioxidant response; OSI, oxidative stress index.
