The aims of this study were to examine levels of the crosslinking components of collagen, pyridinoline (Pyr) and deoxypyridinoline (D-Pyr) which are bone resorption markers, in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and to determine their association with disease activity and bone mineral density (BMD). These bone resorption markers were measured in 35(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To analyze changes in the optic disc topography after filtration surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS Laser scanning tomography was performed in 10 eyes of 9 patients (mean age 65.6 +/- 8.1 years; age range 55 to 75 years) after a mean follow-up of 3.7 months, and in 8 eyes of 7 patients (mean age 63.1 +/- 7.6 years; age range 55 to 75(More)
Using a newly devised automated electro-oculograph, Nidek EOG-2, the fast oscillations (FOs) of the electro-oculogram were recorded in the 120 eyes of 60 normal subjects. We evaluated the normal means and variability of FO parameters, namely the "Rf" value, which is the average ratio in percentage of the maximum amplitude in the dark period (AD)/the minimum(More)
