Abstract

Objective Ischemia-mediated oxidative stress and inflammation have been reported to be important contributors to the pathogenesis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) is a novel marker generated under ischemic and oxidative conditions and may reflect disease activity in distinct disease states. Therefore, we investigated whether the serum IMA levels are affected in infertile PCOS patients.
