OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to examine human serum paraoxonase 1 (PON1) activity, phenotype distribution and lipid parameters in patients with Sjögren's syndrome. The prevalence of cardio- and cerebrovascular diseases in SS patients was also evaluated after a 5-year follow-up. METHODS Fifty-seven SS patients and 17 age-matched healthy controls were enrolled into the study. PON1 and arylesterase activities were measured spectrophotometrically. The phenotype distribution of PON1 was… CONTINUE READING
