PURPOSE Because the expression of classic and nonclassic HLA antigens is crucial for the recognition and elimination of tumor cells by cytotoxic T and/or NK cells, we analyzed the HLA-A, -B, -C, and -G expression in uveal melanoma specimens from 18 patients. METHODS Tumor specimens and EDTA plasma samples from 18 patients treated by primary enucleation or(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effects of laser surgical IOP reduction by means of transscleral cyclophotocoagulation (CPC) on retinal blood flow parameters in glaucoma patients using Dynamic Vessel Analysis (DVA). MATERIALS AND METHODOLOGY 26 patients (average age: 70 years) with a long history of primary open angle glaucoma underwent CPC. The effect on the(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effects of surgical IOP reduction (trabeculectomy) on retinal blood flow parameters in glaucoma patients using Dynamic Vessel Analysis (DVA). METHODS 26 eyes of 26 patients with progressive primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) despite maximal topical therapy were examined before and after trabeculectomy. The responses of the retinal(More)
PURPOSE To test whether latanoprost has an influence on ocular haemodynamics, considering the general reputation of prostaglandins which is frequently associated with vasoconstriction. The effect of latanoprost on the retinal blood supply of treatment-naïve glaucoma patients was tested. MATERIALS AND METHODOLOGY 13 patients (7 male, 6 female) who had just(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of transpalpebral electrotherapy on patients with dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD). METHODS 22 patients were randomized in two groups to either receive therapy (n = 12) or placebo (n = 10). There was no statistically significant difference for age and initial visual acuity (VA) between the two groups (p = 0.6;(More)
PURPOSE To compare the performance of scanning laser topography (SLT) and scanning laser polarimetry (SLP) on the rim of the optic nerve head and its surrounding area and thereby to evaluate whether these imaging technologies are influenced by other factors beyond the thickness of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL). MATERIALS AND METHODOLOGY A total of(More)

Aims and Scope The journal " IJAM " (founded 1999) is peer-reviewed and publishes selected original research papers on wide ranges of Only manuscripts typeset in standard LaTeX (avoid false converting software) are considered. The authors should submit papers in electronic form by e-mail (pdf-files upon submission, and LaTeX and figures files, after(More)
Can we develop technologies to systematically map classical mechanisms throughout the brain, while retaining the flexibility to investigate new mechanisms as they are discovered? We discuss principles of scalable, flexible technologies that could yield comprehensive maps of brain function. There has been much recent excitement about the potential for tools(More)
PURPOSE To determine the correlations and strength of association between different imaging systems in analyzing the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) of glaucoma patients: optical coherence tomography (OCT), scanning laser polarimetry (SLP) and confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (CSLO). MATERIALS AND METHODOLOGY 114 eyes of patients with moderate open(More)
