PURPOSE The relationship between visual acuity and stereoacuity has been well documented: as binocular visual acuity increases, stereoacuity improves. We compared interocular differences in visual acuity and stereoacuity in two presbyopic soft contact lens modalities, monovision and a new soft bifocal contact lens, the Acuvue Bifocal. The Acuvue Bifocal is(More)
The AMPA receptor (AMPAR), a pharmacologically defined ionotropic glutamate receptor, mediates fast excitatory synaptic transmission in the vertebrate central nervous system. Mammalian and avian AMPARs are assembled from the products of four genes (GRIA1-GRIA4) conserved in their translated sequences and gene organizations. Teleost fish also express AMPAR(More)
BACKGROUND To increase the survival span after dialysis in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), identifying specific cancer risks is crucial in the cancer screening of these patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the risks of various cancers in an incident dialysis group in comparison with a non-dialysis group. METHOD We conducted a(More)
Debrisoquine 4-hydroxylase (CYP2D6) is one of the cytochrome P450 enzyme families that metabolize many compounds. Polymorphic activities of debrisoquine 4-hydroxylase were suggested to be associated with some complex diseases, such as cancer and Parkinson's disease. Schizophrenia is also a complex disorder, and hence we are interested in understanding if(More)
