Background and Aims: Oxidative stress possibly helps promote the progression and complications of chronic renal failure (CRF). Haemodialysis (HD) may aggravate oxidative stress. This controlled, cross-sectional clinical study with blind outcome assessment evaluated the effect of prolonged HD treatment on oxidative stress.
