Reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and lipid peroxidation in fibromyalgia (FM) patients. (a) ROS production was analyzed in BMCs from control subjects and FM patients with flow cytometry, as described in Materials and Methods. Lipid peroxidation (MDA levels) in blood mononuclear cells (BMCs) (b) and plasma (c) from control subjects and FM patients were determined as described in Materials and Methods. Data represent the mean ± SD of three separate experiments. *P < 0.001 between controls and FM patients.
