Many neuromuscular diseases are characterized by involuntary and forceful muscle contraction. Doxorubicin has been shown to chemically remove the orbicularis oculi muscle after injection into the eyelid. The chemomyectomy effect of doxorubicin was quantified after injection of a 2-mg dose into the right lower eyelid. A significant loss of muscle was seen in(More)
Classical Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) serology can be misleading in some cases due to the variability of the viral capsid antigen (VCA)-IgM response, persistent or reactivated VCA-IgM, or loss of anti-EBNA-1 during suppression of the cellular immune system. Therefore, we studied the usefulness and significance of avidity determinations of VCA-IgG and EA-IgG to(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to report on the course and long-term effect of selective laser trabeculoplasty on intraocular pressure of pseudophakic patients suffering from open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension with insufficient intraocular pressure lowering despite maximally tolerated topical and systemic intraocular pressure lowering(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to analyse the efficacy of selective laser trabeculoplasty in patients on medical therapy and to evaluate a possible influence of prostaglandin therapy on intraocular pressure reduction. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective chart review was undertaken of patients with ocular hypertension or open angle glaucoma who(More)
PURPOSE To report on the concentration of lipocalin-like prostaglandin D synthase (L-PGDS) in the aqueous humour (AH) in patients with open-angle glaucoma (OAG). PATIENTS AND METHODS Prospective assessment in 20 patients (13 female, 7 male, mean age 74±10.6 y) who underwent surgery for OAG. AH was sampled and analyzed for L-PGDS concentration. AH from 26(More)
BACKGROUND Serological techniques are used to determine Epstein Barr virus (EBV) etiology of a constellation of signs or symptoms related to lymphadenopathy, fever, respiratory tract infection, mononucleosis, hepatitis, thrombocytopenia or neurological disorder. Anti-Epstein Barr Nuclear antigen (EBNA)-1 is regularly negative during the first 3-4 weeks(More)
Recently, avidity determination of IgG has been introduced successfully into virus serology as an additional and specific means for confirmation or exclusion of current infections. This simple and highly reproducible method can compensate for problems arising by classical serology, which include lack of detectable IgM responses during primary infections and(More)
BACKGROUND Previously published studies concerning autopsy findings in ovarian cancer failed to consider the broad differences in factors that influence the course of disease. Furthermore, those studies were conducted when the currently accepted standards in diagnostics and therapy had not been fully established. The objective of the current study was to(More)
Notwithstanding a growth in popularity and consumption of gluten-free (GF) food products, there is a lack of substantiated analysis of the nutritional quality compared with their gluten-containing counterparts. To put GF foods into proper perspective both for those who need it (patients with celiac disease) and for those who do not, we provide contemporary(More)
