PURPOSE To determine the role of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kappaB) in the death of lens epithelial cells (LECs) after ultraviolet (UV) irradiation. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Ilsan Paik Hospital, Inje University, Korea. METHODS Cultures of simian virus 40 transfected human LECs (HLE B-3 cells) were were irradiated with a UVB source (312 nm)(More)
PURPOSE This report aimed to discuss two nearly identical cases of primary conjunctival mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma mimicking allergic conjunctivitis. METHODS Two patients were referred for intractability to conventional treatment of initial diagnoses of allergic conjunctivitis. On ocular examination, normally pigmented, giant(More)
Four patients with diabetes mellitus had cataract extraction with implantation of a hydrophilic acrylic intraocular lens (IOL) (ACRL-C160, Ophthalmed). The IOLs showed progressive and generalized opacification 10 to 20 months after implantation, decreasing visual acuity. All 4 IOLs were removed. By light microscopic examination, the IOL surfaces were(More)
Anti cancer agent 5-FU (Fluoro Uracil) is a prodrug that can be metabolized and then activated to interfere with RNA and DNA homeostasis. However, the majority of administered 5-FU is known to be catabolized in vivo in the liver where Dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD) is abundantly expressed to degrade 5-FU. The biological factors that correlate with(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the forward shift of the posterior corneal surface after myopic laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) relative to the residual stromal bed thickness and the ablation percentage of the total corneal thickness. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Ilsan Paik Hospital, Inje University, Ilsan, Korea. METHODS Three hundred sixty-three eyes(More)
PURPOSE This study was performed to elucidate the role of nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB) in the death of corneal epithelial cells after ultraviolet (UV) irradiation. METHODS Simian virus 40-transfected human corneal epithelial cells (T-HCECs) were used in this study. Cell cultures were irradiated with a UVB (312 nm) source located 10 cm from the bottom(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of a capsular tension ring (CTR) on the tilting and decentration of intraocular lenses (IOLs) after cataract surgery. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Ilsan Paik Hospital, Inje University, Kyunggyi-do, Korea. METHODS Cataract surgery was performed in both eyes of 20 patients ranging in age from 57 to 75 years. The 40(More)
The proliferation, migration and transdifferentiation of the remaining lens epithelial cells (LECs) after cataract surgery are a major cause of posterior capsular opacification (PCO). It has previously been reported that salmosin, a novel disintegrin, significantly inhibits solid tumor growth in mice by perturbation of tumor-specific angiogenesis via(More)
