PURPOSE The pattern electroretinogram optimized for glaucoma screening (PERGLA) is a noninvasive method of objectively measuring retinal ganglion cell (RGC) function. This study was undertaken to quantify the RGC response to intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction after glaucoma surgery. DESIGN Prospective cohort study. PARTICIPANTS Forty-seven eyes of 47(More)
Wild-type herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) infection triggers apoptosis in human cells. The subsequent synthesis of infected cell proteins between 3 and 6 h postinfection (hpi) acts to block this process from killing the cells. The factors produced during this window also prevent cell death induced by environmental staurosporine or sorbitol (M. Aubert,(More)
The object of this study was to examine the initiation and pattern of corneal angiogenesis stimulated by transforming growth factor beta (TGF-B) using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) of vascular corrosion casts and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Fifty nanograms of TGF-B was combined with the slow release polymer Hydron and implanted in the(More)
Consequences of human herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection include the induction of apoptosis and the concomitant synthesis of proteins which act to block this process from killing the infected cell. Recent data has clarified our current understanding of the mechanisms of induction and prevention of apoptosis by HSV. These findings emphasize the fact that(More)
PURPOSE To describe the clinical findings of hypotony maculopathy using 3-dimensional (3D) topography maps reconstructed from spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) imaging, and compare SD-OCT with time domain OCT (TD-OCT) for hypotony maculopathy diagnosis. METHODS This was an observational noncomparative case series comprising 7 patients(More)
PURPOSE Herpes simplex virus (HSV)-1 infections of the human cornea range in severity from uncomplicated episodes that readily resolve to severe, recurring disease that invades the stroma, having a devastating permanent effect on vision. Recent published data implicate an apoptotic component to stromal HSV-1 infection. In a prior study, it was found that(More)
The objective of this study was to explore any age-related morphological changes in the vasa vasorum of the rat femoral artery. Vascular corrosion casts were prepared from 2, 12 and 24-month-old rats. Examination of the casts with the scanning electron microscope revealed dramatic differences in the appearance of the vessels of young and aged rats. The vasa(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to thoroughly examine the in vivo angiogenesis activity of human recombinant tumor necrosis factor alpha (rhTNF). METHODS rhTNF (0.5 ng to 1.0 microgram) was incorporated into the slow release polymers Hydron or HYPAN and implanted into the rabbit cornea. Release of biologically active rhTNF from the polymers was(More)
