Eser Kılıç*, Süleyman Yazar**, Recep Saraymen*.


Aim: To investigate the oxidative stress hypothesis in patients infected with Blastocystis hominis.

Method: Serum malondialdehyde concentration activity was measured in 52 patients who were positive for

intestinal parasite of Blastocystis hominis. Scores were obtained for the positives and their age-and sex-matched 60

Blastocystis hominis negative healthy controls. For comparison of two groups of continuous variables, independent

samples t-test was used.

Results: There were no significant difference between malondialdehyde levels of patients with Blastocystis and

control group both for females (p>0.05) and males (p>0.05). In addition, in the patient and control group, no

correlation was found between age and malondialdehyde levels (p>0.05) both in females and males.

Conclusion: No change was observed in malondialdehyde levels in the patients with Blastocystis compared to


Key Words: Blastocystis Hominis, Malondialdehyde
