Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is one of the most common retinal vascular disorders. During the last years, high levels of homocysteine (Hcy) have been demonstrated to be an independent risk factor for RVO. Aim of this study was to investigate the association among circulating B-group vitamins, Hcy and RVO. Thus, we studied 262 RVO patients and 262 age- and sex-comparable healthy subjects. Serum vitamin B6 was measured by HPLC, serum folic acid and vitamin B12 by radioimmunoassay and plasma Hcy… CONTINUE READING
