Increased Isoprostanes in Children of Smoking Parents
Experimental tobacco smoking (ETS) is attracting increasing attention  as a potential risk factor for the development of atherosclerosis [,]. Assessment of ETS under real life conditions of biochemical changes is difficult. We therefore assessed the isoprostane 8-epi-PGF2α in children of parents diagnosed for familial hyperlipoproteinemia at the receptor level with the aim to clarify whether parental smoking may have an influence.
