Paraoxonase gene polymorphisms and plasma oxidized low-density lipoprotein level as possible risk factors for exudative age-related macular degeneration.
PURPOSE Paraoxonase (E.C.3.1.1.2) is a polymorphic protein shown to prevent low-density lipoprotein oxidation. Our purpose is to evaluate the hypothesis that paraoxonase gene polymorphisms and plasmaExpand
