  1. Fulltext. A possible role for vitamins C and E in cataract prevention.

    Article, Congrès - En anglais


    Conference on antioxidant vitamins and B-carotene in disease prevention. London (GBR), 1989/10/02.

    Biochemical evidence suggests that oxidative stress caused by accumulation of free radicals is involved in the pathogenesis of senile cataracts.

    If so, appropriate amounts of the antioxidant vitamins C and E might be expected to prevent or retard the process.

    Such activity has been observed in several in vitro and in vivo studies of experimentally-induced cataracts.

    A recent epidemiologic study found that cataract patients tended to have lower serum levels of vitamins C, E, or carotenoids than did control subjects.

    The present investigation, which compared the self-reported consumption of supplementary vitamins by 175 cataract patients with that of 175 individually matched, cataract-free subjects, revealed that the latter group used significantly more supplementary vitamins C and E (p=0.01 and 0.004, respectively).
