A significant decrease in retinal antioxidant defense was observed in a rat model mimicking human open-angle glaucoma and since melatonin ameliorated this process, the indoleamine may be a useful component of a therapeutic strategy in glaucoma [95].
The indoleamines were evaluated against butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) which was chosen as a reference standard because of its high antioxidant capacity.

Plasma indoleamines. After sonication of platelet-rich plasma to disrupt the platelets (Ultrasonic Liquid Processor, model 385; Heat Systems Ultrasonics Inc., Farmingdale, NY, U.S.A.), both platelet-rich and platelet-poor plasma were processed in the same way: 200[micro]l of 3.4 mol/L perchloric acid and 50 [micro]1 of 5-hydroxy-tryptophan solution (114.5 [micro]g/m1), as internal standard, were added to 1 ml of plasma vortexed and centrifuged at 10,000 rpm for 15 min at 4[degrees]C.
These enzymes are called L-tryptophan 2,3-dioxygenase (TDO) and indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO).
