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)
AIM to compare the prevalence of Pylori infection in patients with primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and control group with cataract. METHODS This is a prospective case-control study. The participants were organized in two groups. First group (case) consisted of 35 patients with POAG and second group consisted of 35 age matched participants with cataract(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate pupil dilation with intra-cameral injection of preservative-free lidocaine 1% (ICL) versus topical eye midriatics during phacoemulsification. METHODS This case-control study included 40 patients with similar bilateral senile cataract scheduled for phacoemulsification and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. patient's first eye received(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)
