PURPOSE To evaluate whether the densities of corneal subbasal nerves and epithelial immune dendritiform cells (DCs) are comparable between a set of three representative standard images of in vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM) and the wide-field mapped composite IVCM images. METHODS This prospective, cross-sectional, and masked study included 110 eyes of 58(More)
PURPOSE There is considerable evidence for systemic vascular dysfunction in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). We performed nailfold capillary video microscopy to observe directly the nature of nonocular microvasculature abnormalities in POAG. METHODS We enrolled 199 POAG patients and 124 control subjects from four sites. We used JH-1004 capillaroscopes(More)
PURPOSE Although it has been known that patients' perspectives on their disease can significantly affect their level of functional disability as well as disease outcome, limited data are available on patients' perceptions of their dry eye disease (DED). The aim of this questionnaire-based study was to evaluate patients' perspectives on their DED. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the dynamic changes of serum pro-inflammatory cytokines and anti-inflammatory cytokines in patients with acute infection and to explore the effect of 912 compound, a Chinese herbal preparation for intervention. METHODS Forty patients with acute infection were randomly divided into 2 groups, 20 in the 912 group and 20 in the control(More)
PURPOSE Patients' perceptions of the effectiveness of a treatment, or perceived treatment effectiveness (PTE), play an important role in medicine. This study aimed to evaluate patients' PTE in dry eye disease (DED) and investigate factors contributing to these patients' perceptions. METHODS This cross-sectional study included 66 patients with DED. At(More)
The photophysics of a series of molecular organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) has been studied by theoretical calculation. These molecular OLEDs have been integrated by an electron- and hole-transporting components as well as an emitting components into the donor-pi-acceptor (D-pi-A) structures: 2-carbazolyl-7-dimesitylboryl-9,9-diethylfluorene (1),(More)
PURPOSE To quantitatively evaluate the angle anatomy in eyes with the Boston type I keratoprosthesis (B-KPro) differing in the back plate (BP) material and size using anterior segment optical coherence tomography. METHODS B-KPro eyes with poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) (7.0 and 8.5 mm) and titanium (7.0, 8.5, and 9.5 mm) BPs were imaged with anterior(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the diagnostic and therapeutic approach of integrated traditional Chinese and western medicine (TCM-WM) on infectious multiple organ dysfunction syndrome/multiple system and organ failure (MODS/MSOF) for elevating the successful rate of rescuing the patients. METHODS Diagnosis with western medicine and Syndrome Differentiation of TCM(More)
