BACKGROUND Measures that reflect patients' assessment of their health are of increasing importance as outcome measures in randomised controlled trials. The methodological approach used in the pre-validation development of new instruments (item generation, item reduction and question formatting) should be robust and transparent. The totality of the content(More)
The in vivo quiescent corneal stroma keratocytes need to be transformed to activated state in order to obtain sufficient number of cells either for monolayer evaluation or corneal stroma reconstruction. This study aimed to investigate the phenotypic characterization of corneal stromal cells during culture expansion from the limbal region of the cornea.(More)
OBJECTIVE Special Study Module (SSM) is a mandatory research module implemented in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). The objective of this paper is to provide a brief overview on the student research activities and to find out the outcome measures in terms of publication. METHODS It was a retrospective study done on SSM research projects at UKM. The(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to report case series of retinal artery occlusion (RAO) as one of the significant complication post cardiac intervention. CASE PRESENTATION We are reporting one case of branch RAO and one case of central RAO after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). In case 1, a 74-year-old gentleman with pre-existing(More)
BACKGROUND Embozene® is a new neuroembolizing microsphere used to reduce intraoperative bleeding for head and neck tumours. We report a case of iatrogenic ophthalmic artery occlusion after Embozene® embolization of the external carotid artery (ECA). CASE PRESENTATION A 22-year-old African gentleman presented with left nasal obstruction and epistaxis for 2(More)
This study was conducted to explore the feasibility of culturing conjunctiva epithelial cells in serum-free and feeder layer-free culture system with regard to the cell morphology and immunocytochemistry of the rabbit bulbar, fornix and palpebral conjunctiva epithelia. The results showed that epithelium cells from all the three conjunctiva regions can be(More)
The application presented here concerns the evaluation of patient's suitability of using contact lens. The variables used depend on the environments of the patients and the cornea condition. We propose a system which can analyze and decide appropriate type of contact lens (soft lens or hard lens) based on mentioned variables. This decision support system(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to investigate the potential bene ts of Gelam honey (GH) in promoting proliferation of ex vivo cor- neal epithelial cells (CECs) and its effects on the phenotypical features. MATERIALS AND METHODS Corneal epithelial cells were isolated from the corneas of rabbits (n = 6). The optimal dose of GH for CEC proliferation in(More)
