Abstract

Background: Ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) is an isotype of albumin that increases under oxidative stress, and plasma thiols are main defense mechanisms against oxidative stress. The objective of this study was to investigate thiol-disulfide homeostasis and serum IMA levels in postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) patients.
