Objective: Oxidative stress is described as an instability between production of free radicals from cells and antioxidant defence of the body. The aim of the study was to investigate the correlation of total antioxidant capacity (TAC) and total oxidative level (TOL) with the severity of the disease and reliability of these parameters in the follow up of response to treatment in cases with chronic viral hepatitis (CVH).
