324 alleles of the beta-globin gene from unrelated thalassaemia patients native to the eastern region of India (mainly from the state of West Bengal) were analysed for beta-globin gene mutations by the amplification refractory mutation system (ARMS). The major mutations that were detected are IVS-1 pos 5 (G-C), codon 26 (G-A) and codon 30 (G-C) with(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate first and second order responses on multifocal electroretinogram (mfERG) and with retinal nerve fibre layer thickness (RNFL) on Cirrus spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) in glaucoma. METHODS Patients (old and new) diagnosed with primary open angle glaucoma, primary angle closure glaucoma or normal tension glaucoma(More)
Pseudoexfoliation (PEX), an age related disorder is a prominent contributor to secondary glaucoma. Earlier studies have suggested involvement of clusterin in the development of PEX. We designed a case-control study to understand the role of clusterin single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in PEX and analyzed the role of risk alleles in the disease.(More)
