    Introduction: The relationship between trace elements and Oxidative Stress (OS) in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients is still not completely elucidated. The aim of this work is to determine the serum levels of OS and the trace elements in CKD patients. Methods: A total of 91 patients were enrolled and then divided into 5 groups at the basis of CKD stages and therapy methods. Healthy volunteers were included as a control group. Serum levels of SOD, MDA, Zn, Cu, Ca, Fe, and Mg were determined, and the correlations among these data’s were analyzed; a portion of patients are under hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Meanwhile, the association between OS and trace elements will be investigated. Results: The Malondialdehyde (MDA) level in the patients’ sera was significantly higher than the controls&rsq..
