Özet

Aim: Paraoxanase 1 (PON 1) has been shown to protect against atherosclerosis by modifying lipoproteins. Its activity decreases in dialysis patients but is restored after transplantation. Whether it affects arterial stiffness is unclear. In this study we aimed to investigate the effects of PON 1 on arterial stiffness in renal transplant patients.
