Parameter Before hemodialysis (n=45) After Hemodialysis (n=45)
MDA (nmol/ml) 6.16 ± 0.85 6.83 ± 0.69**
SOD (U/ml) 3.61 ± 0.88 3.11 ± 0.76*
After dialysis, concentration of serum MDA in Hemodialysis patients increased further and the concentration of SOD in these patients decreased. These changes were statistically significant (p<0.001 for MDA and p<0.05 for SOD) when compared between both the groups before and after dialysis
