Bacterial biofilm diversity in contact lens-related disease: emerging role of Achromobacter, Stenotrophomonas, and Delftia.
PURPOSE Multi-species biofilms associated with contact lens cases and lenses can predispose individuals to contact lens-related inflammatory complications. Our study used culture-independent methodsExpand

The multipotential cells of the limbus
Ample evidence exists that there is a centripetal movement of cells from the periphery of the cornea toward the centre. While conjunctival cells have the capacity to transdifferentiate into cornealExpand

Pulmonary neuroendocrine cells: Decreased serotonin fluorescence and stable argyrophil-cell numbers in acute hypoxia
SummaryWe recorded serotonin-emission intensity using formalin induced fluorescence and counted the number of neuroendocrine cells (NEC's) and neuroepithelial bodies (NEB's) containing argyrophilExpand

Standardization of Formaldehyde-Induced Fluoresecence and its Measurement to Quantify Serotonim Emission in Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Cells
We describe a modified and standardized quantitative FIF procedure for producing fluorophores and measuring emission intensity of serotonin-containing neuroepithelial bodies (NEB's) in the rabbitExpand
