Background/aim: Neonates have limited antioxidant protective capacity. It has recently been demonstrated that phototherapy used for treatment of neonatal jaundice produces oxidative stress. Various phototherapy devices using different light sources are available for phototherapy. We aimed to investigate the effects of phototherapy applied with different light sources on the global oxidant/antioxidant status in neonates.
