Reduction of free radical activity in amyloid deposits following liver transplantation for familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy.

OBJECTIVES Liver transplantation halt the progress of familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP). Oxidative stress has been implicated in amyloid toxicity and formation. The objective of this study was to establish whether markers for oxidant stress and antioxidant capacity change following liver transplantation in patients with FAP. DESIGN Morphometric… CONTINUE READING
