Background: Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease and omalizumab is indicated for moderate-to-severe persistent asthma. The results of many studies have shown that oxidative stress is involved in asthma pathogenesis. However, there is no data available to evaluate the alterations in total antioxidant capacity, hydrogen peroxide, malondialdehyde, and total nitric oxide concentrations.
