Abstract OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the urinary levels of uric acid (UA) and total antioxidant capacity (TAC) with and without UA relative contribution (TAC(-UA)) in children and adults with Down syndrome (DS) and to prove the clinical use of TAC. DESIGN AND METHODS: Urine samples were obtained from 32 individuals with DS and 29 controls. Two age groups were established (children and adults). Spectrophotometric methods were used for biochemical determinations. RESULTS: Children with DS had significantly higher UA/Cr and TAC/Cr levels than controls, whereas levels of TAC(-UA)/Cr were lower in adults with DS than in controls (P<0.05 for all). In DS, levels of UA/Cr, TAC/Cr and TAC(-UA)/Cr were higher in children than in adults (P<0.05 for all). Positive correlations between UA/Cr and TAC/Cr were found for all groups studied. Negative correlations with age were found for UA/Cr and TAC/Cr in children of both groups. CONCLUSIONS: Our results proved that TAC is decreased in adults with DS. Besides, TAC(-UA) seems to provide more reliable information about the antioxidant status, at least in DS. (c) 2009 The Canadian Society of Clinical Chemists. Published by Elsevier Inc.
