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)
