Finding of carotenoids in the vitreous body of human eye during prenatal development

Finding of carotenoids in the vitreous body of human eye during prenatal development Carotenoids were found for the first time in the vitreous body of human eye during the fetal period from week 15 until week 28.

Abstract

Carotenoids were found for the first time in the vitreous body of human eye during the fetal period from week 15 until week 28. Their maximum content was timed to week 16–22. No carotenoids were found the vitreous body of 31-week fetuses, as well as adult humans, which corresponds to the published data. It was shown using HPLC that chromatographic characteristics of these carotenoids correspond to those of lutein and zeaxanthin, characteristic pigments of the retinal yellow macula.
