PURPOSE To report a case of bilateral pigmentary dispersion syndrome (PDS) induced by the implantation of posterior chamber phakic refractive lenses (PRLs). METHOD Case report. RESULTS Following bilateral implantation of posterior chamber phakic refractive lenses in 38-year-old woman, unilateral elevated intraocular pressure (IOP) developed within(More)
Today's medical journals teem with articles on AIDS, many of them elucidating the gene structure of the HTLV-III virus or describing yet another bizarre complication of the disease. Yet the story of AIDS involves much more than laboratory notebooks and medical charts reveal. AIDS inflicts anguish and social ostracism upon its victims, and the medical(More)
New Zealand white rabbits have a circadian rhythm of intraocular pressure; pressure is higher during the dark than during the light. We explored the possibility that the dark phase increase of serum and/or ocular melatonin plays a role in regulating the rhythm of intraocular pressure. Exogenous melatonin was delivered by four routes: topical application(More)
instances of real data being used to describe and expand on discussion of the techniques. Many of the chapters deal with the philosophy of the technique, the advantages and disadvantages associated with it, and the type of empirical questions that can be addressed by the method. Chapters are also adequately referenced to allow further study, if desired, at(More)
609 graduate-level course and would be an important addition to the library of researchers whose work touches on this important subject. Charles Darwin proposed his theory of evolution long before anyone understood the molecular basis of genetics. The techniques of molecular biology have afforded us deeper insights into the workings of evolution. Molecular(More)
functional antigenic determinants, such as the well-characterized myoglobin molecule. The utilization of monoclonal antibody libraries as probes to study the structure and function of such receptors as those to acetylcholine, f-adrenergic agents, thyroid stimulating hormone, insulin, and insulin-like growth factors are well presented in chapters two through(More)
