OBJECTIVES To evaluate the usefulness of array-based comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) for prenatal genetic diagnosis of congenital heart disease (CHD), with and without associated anomalies, and to explore the relationship between submicroscopic chromosomal aberrations and CHD. METHODS In this prospective study we investigated 76 consecutive(More)
OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to assess (1) the relationship between interocular suppression and visual function in patients with anisometropic amblyopia, (2) whether suppression can be simulated in matched controls using monocular defocus or neutral density filters, (3) the effects of spectacle or rigid gas-permeable contact lens correction on(More)
BACKGROUND Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men and the second leading cause of cancer death. All clinical observations correlate poorly differentiated high-grade prostate cancer with disease-specific mortality. The HER2 cell membrane tyrosine kinase, a member of the epidermal growth factor receptor family that is the transcription(More)
In an effort to reduce the incidence and severity of acute GVHD (aGVHD), we have developed a new prophylaxis regimen combining cyclosporine and MTX with a short 30-day course of low-dose (500 mg per day) mycophenolate mofetil. This regimen was studied prospectively 100 patients undergoing HLA-matched and 1-antigen-mismatched allogeneic peripheral blood SCT(More)
PURPOSE This study had three main goals: to assess the degree of suppression in patients with strabismic, anisometropic, and mixed amblyopia; to establish the relationship between suppression and the degree of amblyopia; and to compare the degree of suppression across the clinical subgroups within the sample. METHODS Using both standard measures of(More)
OBJECTIVE Regular follow-up is essential to successful management of childhood cataract. We sought to assess whether a mobile phone short message service (SMS) for parents of children with cataract could improve follow-up adherence and the proportion of procedures performed in timely fashion. DESIGN Randomized, controlled trial. This trial is registered(More)
Adults with amblyopia, a common visual cortex disorder caused primarily by binocular disruption during an early critical period, do not respond to conventional therapy involving occlusion of one eye. But it is now clear that the adult human visual cortex has a significant degree of plasticity, suggesting that something must be actively preventing the adult(More)
Amblyopia is a neurodevelopmental disorder of vision caused by abnormal visual experience during early childhood that is often considered to be untreatable in adulthood. Recently, it has been shown that a novel dichoptic videogame-based treatment for amblyopia can improve visual function in adult patients, at least in part, by reducing inhibition of inputs(More)
Perceptual learning in contrast detection improves monocular visual function in adults with anisometropic amblyopia; however, its effect on binocular combination remains unknown. Given that the amblyopic visual system suffers from pronounced binocular functional loss, it is important to address how the amblyopic visual system responds to such training(More)
