The in vitro activity of the silver nitrate was assessed in comparison with that of natamycin against 128 corneal Fusarium isolates and 90 corneal Aspergillus isolates. MIC(90)s of silver nitrate were 2 microg/ml for Fusarium spp. and 1 microg/ml for Aspergillus spp. MIC(90)s of natamycin were 8 microg/ml for Fusarium spp. and 32 microg/ml for Aspergillus(More)
The in vitro activity of thimerosal versus those of amphotericin B and natamycin was assessed against 244 ocular fungal isolates. The activity of thimerosal against Fusarium spp., Aspergillus spp., and Alternaria alternata was 256 times, 512 times, and 128 times, respectively, greater than that of natamycin and 64 times, 32 times, and 32 times,(More)
BACKGROUND Dry eye (DE) is a common eye disease, and appropriate animal models are essential to explore the pathogenesis and therapy of DE. In this study, we aimed to establish rabbit models by three methods. METHODS In group A, the lacrimal gland, Harderian gland, and nictitating membrane of the left eyes were surgically removed. In group B, the bulbar(More)
This paper introduces a new way to solve the Facility Layout Problem (FLP). The FLP consists of choosing positions of a set of departments in the facility so that the material handling cost is minimized. We employed an Evolutionary Strategy (ES) using Levy Flight as basis for an improved mutation operator. We compared this algorithm with GA, ACO, Chaos(More)
Galanin is a multi-functional neuropeptide that is widely distributed in the mammalian central nervous system and peripheral tissues. It exerts multiple physiological functions through interaction with 3 known G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR), namely, galanin type I, II and III (GalR1, 2 and 3) receptors, which have only been identified in mammals. In(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the antifungal activity of phenylmercuric acetate against ocular pathogenic fungi in vitro and develop new antifungal eye drops to combat keratomycosis. METHODS The in vitro activity of phenylmercuric acetate was assessed against 261 isolates of ocular pathogenic fungi that included 136 Fusarium spp. isolates, 98 Aspergillus spp.(More)
