Reactive microglia and astrocytes are present in lesions of white matter disorders, such as periventricular leukomalacia and multiple sclerosis. However, it is not clear whether they are actively involved in the pathogenesis of these disorders. Previous studies demonstrated that microglia, but not astrocytes, are required for lipopolysaccharide(More)
Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) carries significant injury to endothelial cells in transplanted organs and is an important factor in chronic rejection. Immunosuppressive drugs, notably cyclosporin A (CyA) and FK506, can potentially augment this injury. Here, our goal was to determine the combined effects of I/R and CyA or FK506 on endothelial cells. Transformed(More)
Infection is a very important but rare cause of scleritis, occurring in about 5%-10% of all patients presenting with scleral inflammation. However, due to the similarity of its presentation, infectious scleritis is often initially managed as autoimmune, potentially further worsening its outcome. The overall visual outcome in infectious scleritis is(More)
