BACKGROUND Axonal distribution within the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) measured by optical coherence tomography (OCT) correlates with axonal viability and integrity. OBJECTIVE To investigate correlations between RNFL and MRI measures of axonal loss in MS patients. METHODS Fifty one remitting-relapsing MS patients, 20 with a history of optic neuritis(More)
Bovine rhodopsin has been phosphorylated in rod outer segments by ATP and endogenous rhodopsin kinase. Mono-, di-, and triphosphorylated rhodopsins have been prepared by chromatofocusing. Nearly all of the phosphate is found in peptide 330-348, formed by digestion of phosphorhodopsins with endoproteinase Asp-N. Sequence analysis of the phosphopeptides shows(More)

This master thesis investigates the possibilities of using Suffix Tree Clustering (STC) algorithm to clustering search results in the Polish language as obtained from Web search engines. This work indicates possible problems arising when documents in language of complex inflection and syntax are being clustered. We also share the results of our observations(More)
PURPOSE To report choroidal thickness and volume in healthy eyes using swept source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). METHODS A prospective observational study of 122 patients examined with swept source OCT (DRI-OCT, Topcon, Japan). In each eye, we performed 256 horizontal scans, 12 mm in length and centered on the fovea. We calculated choroidal(More)
Interleukin-13 (IL-13) is a pleiotropic cytokine that elicits both proinflammatory and anti-inflammatory immune responses. Recent studies underscore its role in several diseases, including asthma and cancer. Solution studies of IL-13 and its soluble receptors may facilitate the design of antagonists/agonists which would require milligram quantities of(More)
AIM To present macular hole surgery in a patient who had previously undergone thyroid removal surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS During thyroid gland removal surgery, the recurrent laryngeal nerves were cut by the surgeon. Therefore, the patient had to have a tracheotomy and because of this unusual situation, the patient could not breathe if lying(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this paper is to present retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) defects in spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and their gradual resolution over time. MATERIALS AND METHODS Observational case series of 3 eyes of 3 patients who were followed for a period of 3-6 years after undergoing surgery to mechanically close the borders(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of our study was to analyze spectral optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) findings in a patient with clinical signs of sialidosis. CASE REPORT Fluorescein angiography and spectral optical coherence tomography was performed in a 37-year-old woman using a SD-OCT device with axial resolution of 6 µm. Enzyme assay followed. The patient was(More)
The retina is a very innovative subspecialty of ophthalmology and ophthalmologists are continuing to play major roles in keeping this an exciting and dynamic field. The amazing developments in OCT imaging, the use of smaller and smaller gauge instruments, and advances in cutting tools and pump systems all reflect the dedication of surgeons and the(More)
PURPOSE To describe retinal changes during Spectral Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) guided bevacizumab treatment for neovascular age- related macular degeneration (AMD). SETTINGS AND DESIGN Single center observational study. MATERIALS AND METHODS We confirmed wet AMD in 47 eyes of 45 patients by fluorescein angiography and SD-OCT. After(More)
