For evaluation of the effects of different free-radical scavengers on biochemical changes in lens-induced uveitis (LIU), ten male Wistar rats were sensitized for 8 weeks using bovine lens protein and Freund's adjuvant. The uveitis was induced by disruption of the lens capsule. One group of animals received superoxide dismutase and catalase (SOD/CAT); a second group of animals was treated with vitamin E. Lipid peroxides (LPO) of the retinal tissue and aqueous humor served as parameter of… CONTINUE READING
