Objectives: Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of mortality in patients receiving hemodialysis (HD) and continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) due to chronic renal failure. Increased lipid peroxidation and depletion of antioxidants may contribute to increased risk of atherosclerosis. We have therefore assessed the effect of hemodialysis and CAPD on oxidant and antioxidant status.
