Özet

Purpose. Cadmium accumulation in the lens has been implicated in cataractogenesis of chronic smokers. This study was planned to evaluate whether or not in vivo cigarette smoke exposure causes cadmium accumulation in rat lens, and possible protective effect and mechanism of alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E) treatment on cataractogenesis.
