Follow-up of plasma semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase activity and retinopathy in Type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Abstract

Plasma activity of the enzyme semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO) is high in diabetes. Production of angiotoxic substances (an aldehyde, hydrogen peroxide, and ammonia) in vessel walls is catalysed by SSAO, suggesting a role for SSAO in the development of complications of diabetes. The objective of the present study was to follow up plasma SSAO… (More)
