Example text

Benedek: In diabetics, cataracts are extracted at an earlier age than in non-diabetics, so the inference is that they are more advanced and develop earlier, but that has not been proved. In the Framingham study there was an association between raised blood sugar concentration and cataract, but there is little more epidemiological evidence than that. Clayton: This has also emerged from the HANES and Edinburgh studies. Horwitz: Is there any special feature in the morphology of the diabetic cataract which we know from experimental models?

There may also be a genetic component in the relationship between cataract and alcohol. Drews (1970) and Sabiston (1973) found presenile cataracts in alcoholics, and we found an association with relatively heavy drinking; but genetic differences in the rate of metabolism and even in preference are well known in mouse and man. All this is still hypothetical as regards human cataract. However, there is evidence for genetic differences between rat strains in the cataractogenic effects of naphthalene (see Koch et al 1976).

Explain polygenically determined phenotypes, and this concept has been proposed for cataract formation by Hockwin & Koch (1975). Our evidence (Fig. 3) supports this hypothesis. The mean values in the cataract population for several plasma components deviate from the means of the non-cataract population (see Table 1) in the direction in which, for many of them, cataractogenic potential lies, but these deviations were not associated with any well-defined pathology, and each may be due to several factors.
