Background: Oxidative stress in hemodialysis (HD) patients or hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections may be related to increased production of free radicals. We assessed the effect of HCV infection on the oxidative stress markers, malondialdehyde (as TBARS), protein carbonyl content and protein sulfhydryl groups, in chronic HD patients.
