We present what is to our knowledge the first observation of a diffusing-wave-spectroscopy signal recorded in-vivo on the ocular fundus. A modified ophthalmic microscope was developed which can acquire diffusing-wave-spectroscopy signal from the eye fundus. The diffusing-wave-spectroscopy signal was recorded in-vivo on a rabbit eye during transpupillary(More)
The present electroencephalographic (EEG) study investigated the ability of cochlear implant (CI) users to recognize emotional prosody. Two CI speech-processing strategies were compared: the ACE (Advance Combination Encoder) and the newly developed MP3000. Semantically neutral sentences spoken in three different emotional prosodies (neutral, angry, happy)(More)
Patients receiving photodynamic therapy (PDT) with verteporfin (Visudyne, Novartis AG), a new treatment for subfoveal choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and pathologic myopia, should be scheduled for follow-up every 12 weeks (+/-2 weeks) after the initial treatment. However, important data from clinical(More)
Recent success in clinical trials supports the use of adeno-associated viral (AAV) vectors for gene therapy of retinal diseases caused by defects in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). In contrast, evidence of the efficacy of AAV-mediated gene transfer to retinal photoreceptors, the major site of inherited retinal diseases, is less robust. In addition,(More)
PurposeTo study visual and anatomical outcomes of sequenced combined therapy using intravitreal bevacizumab followed by photodynamic therapy (PDT) in eyes with retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP). Safety and rate of intravitreal injections were also evaluated.MethodsWe conducted a prospective non-comparative pilot study of consecutive patients newly(More)
A study was made of the protective effects afforded by some derivatives of alpha-ketoglutaric acid in hyperbaric oxygen intoxication. The research performed shows that these substances are able either to prevent convulsions (Paul Bert phenomenon) or to prolong the survival of treated animals. Brain ATP rates and liver succinyl dehydrogenase activity, which(More)
