PURPOSE To compare the visual and optical outcomes of four multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) with three different near additions of +3.00 diopters (D), +3.75 D and +4.00 D. METHODS In this prospective study, 133 eyes of 88 patients were implanted with one of the following IOLs: AcrySof(®) ReSTOR(®) SN6AD1 (+3.00 D) for Group A, Acriva(UD) Reviol BB MF(More)
BACKGROUND Mammalian sirtuins are homologs to the yeast silent information regulator 2 (Sir2), which is an NAD-dependent deacetylase. Sirtuins are comprised of 7 proteins, and each has different target proteins. Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) plays important roles in maintaining metabolic functions and immune responses, and SIRT3 protects cells from oxidative(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate and compare the visual acuity outcomes and optical performances of eyes implanted with two diffractive multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) models with either a plate haptic design or a modified-C design. METHODS This retrospective study comprised cataract patients who were implanted with either a plate haptic multifocal IOL model(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity and overweight have been frequently observed in dogs and cats in recent years as in humans. The compositions of fatty acids (FAs) in the accumulated lipids in tissues of obese animals may have important roles in the process and mechanisms related to the onset of metabolic disorders. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of(More)
