Abstract

Objective : It has been known that there was a relation between the levels of DNA damage and the severity of the coronary artery disease (CAD). However, little is known about association of DNA damage with total antioxidant capacity (TAC) and CAD. The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship between DNA damage, TAC and CAD.
