Abstract

Purpose: The aim of this study was to assess the atherogenicity risk of antiepileptics in children by investigating the cascade, "hyperhomocysteinemia (HHcy) -> asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) increase -> nitric oxide (NO) decrease", which is thought to contribute to the developmental process of atherosclerosis.
