OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of cyclosporin A (CsA) on cytokine and/or collagen production, cell growth, and apoptosis in conjunctival fibroblast cultures. METHODS Fibroblast cultures derived from normal subjects and patients with vernal keratoconjunctivitis and pemphigoid were exposed to different concentrations of CsA for either 24 hours or 30(More)
PURPOSE To measure multiple cytokine and chemokine production in tears of myopic patients before and after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and in human corneal fibroblast (HCF) cultures before and after excimer laser treatment. SETTING Department of Neuroscience, Ophthalmology Unit, University of Padua, Italy and Vissum-Instituto de Oftalmológico de(More)
AIMS This comparative and randomised pilot study assessed the clinical and biological efficacy of Naaxia Sine(R) eye-drops versus levocabastine eye-drops in the treatment of vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC). METHODS Twenty-three VKC patients were randomised and treated bilaterally for 28 days with N-acetyl-aspartyl-glutamate (NAAGA) or levocabastine(More)
Allergic mechanisms have been shown to induce gastric and intestinal damage in animal models. It has been demonstrated that people allergic to food may complain of gastrointestinal disorders. Furthermore food allergens can induce gastric mucosal damage in sensitized people. Little is known as regards allergic mechanisms underlying "peptic" ulcers although(More)
An investigation on the compressibility effects arising into the near field of turbulent jets operated at high Reynolds number at Mach numbers M=0.3, 0.9 and 1.1 (under-expanded regime) is carried out with twocomponents planar PIV experiments with high resolution cameras. The arrangement of the PIV system allows for mapping out the flow field with a vector(More)
