From: The effect of different combination therapies on oxidative stress markers in HIV infected patients in cameroon

Groups HIV negative (n = 90) HIV positve
   pre-HAART (n = 65) HAART (n = 85)
Carbonyls (nmol/mg protein) 1.07 ± 0.27 1.34 ± 0.98a 0.84 ± 0.90a
TBARS (μmol/l) 1.3 ± 0.12 4.2 ± 0.77a 6.28 ± 1.3ab
  1. Significant differences (a P < 0.0001) are by comparison with the control group (HIV Negative), (b P < 0.0001) by comparison with the HIV positive patients without therapy (pre-HAART)
