To ascertain the effectiveness of topical antioxidant therapy on acute corneal inflammation, we have studied the effectiveness of topical treatment with a saline solution and with antioxidants such as 0.2% superoxide dismutase and 0.5% dimethylthiourea (DMTU) in a controlled experimental study. The evolution of the inflammatory process was evaluated by a(More)
A component-based methodology to derive parallel stiff Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE) solvers for multicomputers is presented. The methodology allows the exploitation of the multilevel parallelism of this kind of numerical algorithms and the particular structure of ODE systems by using parallel linear algebra modules. The approach furthers the(More)
Top choices and rankings are applied in situations where a fixed set of choice alternatives (products, candidates) is offered to a group of decision makers, each of whom is requested to pick or rank, respectively, a subset containing some number of preferred alternatives. In this framework, random utility models are used for modelling choice and ranking(More)
An extracapsular cataract extraction was performed on both eyes of 24 rabbits. Irrigation for 10 min of the capsular bag of the left (test) eye with 8-12 cm3 of 1 litre of BSS-plus to which had been added 50 mg of 5-fluorouracil significantly inhibited proliferation of the anterior capsular epithelium as compared with the right (control) eyes identically(More)
We present an improved and simplified method for vital staining of the corneal endothelium, which allows high-quality images that are excellent for morphological and morphometric studies. This method is based upon the combination of trypan blue and alizarin red S. The main advantages of this technique are simplicity, rapidity and low cost.
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) has potent oxidant properties due to the action of free radicals (OH.) induced from its degradation. The free radicals specie derived from H2O2 are extremely toxic to the corneal endothelium and quickly induce corneal edema. In the present work, in order to ascertain the endothelial cell protection from viscoelastic substances, we(More)
