Paraoxonase-1 (PON1), a high-density lipoprotein (HDL) associated enzyme, is involved in the metabolism and detoxification of insecticides and pesticides. Three polymorphisms within the PON1 gene affect the enzyme activity. Two of these (L55M and Q192R) are located at the coding region and the third (–107C/T) is in promoter region. We performed a(More)
OBJECTIVE Paraoxonase (PON) is associated with high-density lipoprotein and protects serum lipid from oxidation. The aim of this study was to determine serum PON, arylesterase (ARE) activities, and total antioxidant capacity (TAC) in metabolic syndrome (MES). METHODS This case-control study was performed on 106 patients with MES and 231 healthy subjects.(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the frequency of celiac disease (CD) in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and healthy controls using tissue transglutaminase IgA antibodies (anti-tTGA) as a screening tool. BACKGROUND CD and MS are immune-mediated diseases, and it has been hypothesized that the genetic similarities between these conditions can predispose(More)
