Özet

Objective: Vitiligo is a chronic autoimmune depigmentation disease, which is characterized by loss of function of the melanocytes in epidermis. Recent studies suggest that oxidant/antioxidant status plays important role in the pathogenesis of vitiligo. We aimed to investigate possible associations between vitiligo and PON1 M/L55 and PON Q192R gene polymorphisms in the Turkish community.
