The aim of the present study was to determine the levels of inflammation related cytokines in the aqueous humor and serum of patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome.


tabriz university of medical sciences


In this study we measured the level of inflammatory markers such as Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha, Interleukin-10 in the aqueous humor and serum of 30 patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome and compared the results with 30 healthy controls.


Results:Aqueous humor obtained from patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome showed increased levels of Interleukin -10 and Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha (p=0.01, p=0.002). The serum levels of Interleukin-10 and Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha in pseudoexfoliation syndrome group was significantly higher than those of the control group(p=0.01, p=0.001)


Pseudoexfoliation syndrome is associated with molecular inflammatory response in aqueous humor and serum.
