PURPOSE Oxidative stress is an initiating factor in the development of maturity-onset cataract. Diet has a significant impact on cataract development, and individual dietary components responsible for the protective effect include flavonoids, of which quercetin is the most important. The purpose of this study was to investigate the protective effect of quercetin and its toxicity for human lens epithelial cells (HLECs). METHODS HLECs in culture were incubated for 48 hours with either 1% (vol… CONTINUE READING
