Objective: Oxidative stress is among the major components of cardiovascular disease pathogenesis. Thiols play a significant role in prevention of oxidative stress in the cell. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between the severity of coronary artery disease and disulphide/native thiol ratio, also determine if this ratio can be used as a marker of oxidative stress in this population.
