  1. The markers are: superoxide production (SO superoxide production corrected for mitochondria quantity, reactive oxygen metabolites (ROMs square root transformed), RBC membrane resistance to oxidative attack and plasma antioxidant capacity (log transformed)
  2. Results are given with correlation coefficient (r), t value, degree of freedom (df) and p value
