PURPOSE To determine the phospholipid content of specific anatomic regions within the crystalline lens. METHODS Phospholipid extracts of tissues dissected from 5 sets of 10 rabbit lenses were analyzed by 31P nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Twenty-nine pathway-specific metabolic indexes were calculated from groups of phospholipids and ratios of(More)
A 48-year-old man presented to the emergency department with a 3-day history of decreased vision in a painful proptotic right eye. The patient was being treated with chemotherapy and radiation for non-small cell lung carcinoma. Examination showed visual acuity of hand motions, decreased motility, and an afferent pupillary defect on the right, consistent(More)
Since diseases of the neural retina and optic nerve can result in alteration of biological membranes, this study determines similarities and differences in the membrane phospholipid content of the neural retina, optic nerve head, and optic nerve to serve as baseline data. Neural retina, optic nerve head, and optic nerve were dissected, isolated as 5 sets(More)
An outbreak of rash-like illness compatible with rubella occurred among the student population of a large university in Los Angeles between November 1, 1981 and January 31, 1982. A case-control study was conducted in order to estimate the effectiveness of rubella vaccine in preventing clinical rubella in this university population. Immunization and disease(More)
A 34-year-old woman presented with bilateral ophthalmoplegia, ptosis, and mild gait ataxia. Tensilon test, magnetic resonance imaging, and cerebrospinal fluid analysis were normal. She initially denied any alcohol intake but later admitted to significant alcohol and multisubstance abuse. The patient improved dramatically after treatment with thiamine.(More)
