Abstract: Release of reactive oxygen and reactive nitrogen species (ROS and RNS) contribute to increased oxidative stress and also tissues damage which is thought to lead to multi-organ failure in Leptospirosis. The antioxidant capacity (AOC) of serum provides a measure of overall protection against oxidative damage. RNS (ie., nitric oxide (NO ) released is immediately converted to NO2 and NO3 (NOx) and serum NOx levels reflect the level of NO released.
