Lack of relationship between beta-hexosaminidase activity and retinopathy in insulin dependent diabetics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Beta-hexosaminidase activity in plasma and urine was measured and compared in insulin dependent diabetics (IDDM) with and without proliferative retinopathy. No difference in the activity of beta-hexosaminidase was found between the two groups indicating that this enzyme is not involved in the development of diabetic microangiopathy.
