PURPOSE To evaluate the outcomes in nanophthalmic eyes that had phacoemulsification and intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. SETTING Toronto Western Hospital, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. METHODS Six nanophthalmic eyes of 4 patients had uneventful phacoemulsification and posterior chamber IOL implantation with a retrobulbar or(More)
Despite truly impressive achievements in the global battle against HIV there remains a need for new drugs directed against novel targets, and the viral capsid protein (CA) may represent one such target. Intense structural characterization of CA over the last two decades has provided unprecedented insight into the structure and assembly of this key viral(More)
To evaluate the safety, efficacy, and predictability of photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) to correct post-radial-keratotomy (RK) hyperopic shift. University of Sherbrooke, Sherbrooke, Québec, Canada.This retrospective nonconsecutive case series comprised 53 eyes of 53 patients who had PRK to correct hyperopic shift after RK. Both RK and PRK were performed(More)
Depression of cell-mediated immunity is well established in most malignancies and especially in head and neck cancers, and much information is available concerning the defect in helper T lymphocyte function. We now report on impairment of the monocyte-macrophage system. Compared with normal controls we found that patients displayed, on one hand, an(More)
Posterior dislocation is a well-described complication of plate-haptic intraocular lenses (IOLs). It usually occurs after an opening in the posterior capsule, either intraoperatively or after a neodymium: YAG capsulotomy occurs. We report a case of anterior luxation of a plate-haptic silicone IOL occurring 4 months after uneventful cataract surgery. This(More)
The strategy considered herein features an iodocyclofunctionalization/hydrogen-transfer reaction sequence for the elaboration of propionate motifs. Proceeding with excellent yield and diastereoselectivity, the synthetic sequence proposed gives access to the anti-anti dipropionate motif when the reduction step is performed under the control of the exocyclic(More)
