Serum paraoxonase is known to prevent low-density lipoprotein oxidation and atherogenesis. Association of paraoxonase with the oxidative status and lipid profile in chronic renal failure (CRF) patients on conservative management and those on chronic maintenance hemodialysis was analyzed in the present study. Serum paraoxonase, protein thiols, lipid hydroperoxides, lipid profile, creatinine and albumin levels were estimated by spectrophotometric methods in CRF patients on conservative management, those on hemodialysis and in healthy controls. Total cholesterol, triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, lipid hydroperoxides and creatinine levels were higher and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, protein thiols, albumin levels and paraoxonase activity were lower in patients than in healthy controls. Paraoxonase activity correlated positively with protein thiols and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and negatively with low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and lipid hydroperoxides. In conclusion, paraoxonase activity is decreased in CRF patients particularly on chronic maintenance hemodialysis and correlates well with the oxidative stress markers.
