Background: The aim of this study was to explore oxidative stress status, especially the enzyme myeloperoxidase in children with end-stage renal disease. Also, we investigated possible associations between the atherogenic index of plasma and these parameters. Methods: Lipid status parameters, oxidative stress status parameters, and myeloperoxidase concentration were measured in the sera of 20 children in the last stage of chronic renal disease (ESRD) and 35 healthy children of matching age and sex. The Atherogenic Index of Plasma (AIP) was calculated according to the appropriate equation. Results: We did not find any significant differences in myeloperoxidase concentrations between the investigated groups (p = 0.394). Oxidative stress parameters were, however, significantly higher in the patient group (p lt 0.001), as well as the atherogenic index of plasma (p lt 0.001). Myelo per oxidase concentration and advanced oxidation protein product (AOPP) concentration were independently a...ssociated with increased AIP in the patient group (p lt 0.05). Conclusions: Changes in AIP in children with ERSD are associated with the oxidative stress status and myeloper oxidase concentration.
