  • Antioxidants in 50% Autologous Serum Eye Drops

    Both fresh and frozen 50% Autologous Serum eye drops present antioxidant capacities and reactive oxygen species in an apparently stable balance. Recent studies have demonstrated that oxidative stress is involved in the pathogenesis of dry eye disease.

    50% Autologous Serum eye drops seem to contain total reactive antioxidant potential concentrations that are approximately five to six times greater than in the natural tears of young and healthy individuals.

    No differences in the antioxidant properties of the AS eye drops made from the cases and controls in the present study were found. This finding is important because it demonstrates that patients with ocular disease with and without systemic pathologies might be capable of producing high-quality AS eye drops in terms of their antioxidant properties.

    AS eye drops improve the quality of life of severe dry eye patients, although reports of the correlation between this improvement and clinical measurements are scarce in the literature.
