Abstract

Introduction. Human paraoxonase 1 (PON1) is an enzyme related with high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. The link between genetic polymorphisms of PON1 and hyperlipidemia and increased lipid oxidation may explain these complications in the course of glomerular diseases. In this study, we aimed to investigate PON1 192 and PON1 55 polymorphisms in patients with primary glomerulonephritis and healthy individuals.
