Abstract

Objectives: The purpose of this study was to measure the oxidative and antioxidant biochemical parameters in the serum of Italian patients with age-related maculopathy (ARM) and in a similar age control group from the same area, in order to determine the weight of oxidative status as risk factor in the early stage of macular degeneration onwards. Design and methods: Forty-eight ARM patients (19 early and 29 late form) and 46 normal subjects, similar for age, sex and life-style, were studied. A series of serum and/or plasma antioxidants (vitamins C, E, A, total and individual carotenoids, zinc, total plasma antioxidant capacity - TRAP) and oxidative parameters (reactive oxygen metabolites - ROM, oxidized-low-density lipoprotein antibodies - anti-Ox-LDL) were evaluated in both groups, also with regard to age and disease stage. Results: Levels of vitamins C, E, total carotenoids and β-cryptoxanthine were lower in late ARM than in early ARM (p
