Table 4 Comparison of the activities of enzymatic antioxidants (Catalase, GR and TAOC) in plasma among the groups

From: Biochemical parameters and oxidative stress markers in Tunisian patients with periodontal disease

Patients Controls P value 95%CI
Values
Plasma catalase (ku/l) 1.95 ± 0.40 13.38 ± 10 0.001 5.49–8.46
Plasma GR (nmol/min/ml) 28.55 ± 10.79 48.72 ± 8.02 0.001 33.91–38.72

  1. Patients, n = 80; Controls, n = 50. Normally distributed data are expressed as means±SD, and non normally distributed data are expressed as median (IQR [interquartile range]). GR Glutathione reductase, TAOC Total antioxidant capacity. The difference is significant compared with the control group (P ≤ 0.05)
