We studied parameters of lipid peroxidation (LPO) in women with infertility, resident of the Republic of Buryatia. The levels of malonic dialdehyde (MDA) were increased in the examined infertile women from Buryat and Russian populations. Reduced total antioxidant activity, activity of superoxide dismutase (SOD), and α-tocopherol levels were revealed in patients from Buryat population; decreased concentrations of reduced glutathione were recorded in patients from Russian populations.
