Serum oxidative stress parameters and paraoxonase-1 in children and adolescents exposed to passive smoking
MetadataShow full item record
Background: Exposure to secondhand smoke is too common in many countries. The mechanism of the detrimental effects of passive smoking on childhood health, however, is poorly described. The purpose of this study was therefore to examine the effect of passive smoking on total antioxidant status (TAS), total oxidant status (TOS), and paraoxonase-1 in children compared with healthy non-passive smokers.
