Abstract

This study found that oxidative stress was higher in the group of SLE patients with IR, and increased ferritin, whether caused by the inflammatory process per se or hyperinsulinaemia, can favour the redox process. In addition, the preset data reinforce the need to measure oxidative stress with several methodologies with different assumptions.
