AIM To identify trends in vitreoretinal surgery at a tertiary referral centre from 1987 to 1996. METHODS A retrospective study of patients who had undergone vitreoretinal surgery at St Paul's Eye Unit over two 6 month periods in 1987 and 1996. Preoperative ocular status, surgery details, and outcome were collected. chi 2 and Mann-Whitney U tests were used(More)
To investigate three possible causes of the acute hemolysis in the hemolytic-uremic syndrome, we studied prospectively 207 children and 34 adults with shigellosis in Bangladesh. Nineteen children showed acute hemolytic anemia, a leukemoid reaction, thrombocytopenia and oliguria; nine other had, in addition, a serum urea nitrogen level of over 100 mg per(More)
AIMS To evaluate the efficacy and safety of intravitreal ranibizumab in patients with choroidal neovascularisation secondary to pathological myopia (myopic CNV). Data are from a pre-planned, 6-month interim analysis. METHODS Phase II, open-label, single arm, multicentre, 12-month study, recruiting patients (aged ≥18 years) with active primary or recurrent(More)
Suppression of egg production is the main parasitological manifestation of naturally acquired resistance to Schistosoma bovis in Sudanese cattle. In preliminary investigations on the mechanisms involved, 700-4,000 "suppressed" adult worms were surgically transplanted from six "resistant" donor cattle with very low fecal egg counts (0-8 eggs/g, epg) into six(More)
Twelve nine-month-old zebu calves were each experimentally infected with 10,000 Schistosoma bovis cercariae. Four were treated orally with 20 mg/kg praziquantel at weeks 9 and 14 after infection, and four were treated orally three times with metrifonate at week 11 (25 mg/kg) and again at week 14 (50 mg/kg). Praziquantel proved to be highly effective,(More)
AIMS The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of standard-fluence verteporfin photodynamic therapy (PDT) delivered on the first day of a ranibizumab regimen for choroidal neovascularisation secondary to age-related macular degeneration compared with ranibizumab monotherapy. METHODS Patients were randomised to sham or standard-fluence verteporfin(More)
PURPOSE To study the outcome of vitreous loss among senior surgeons converting from conventional extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) to phacoemulsification. SETTING A university teaching hospital in the United Kingdom. METHODS A retrospective analysis of 87 planned cataract extractions performed from January 1992 to December 1996 and complicated by(More)
Between November 1991 and March 1992, 37 cases of paralytic poliomyelitis occurred in Jordan, where none had been reported since 1988. Of these, 17 (50%) of 34 patients had received at least three doses of oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV3). The first and 2 subsequent case-patients were children of Pakistani migrant workers, and the first 8 and a total of 27(More)
We report a case in which a severe corneoscleral burn occurred during phacoemulsification surgery. The equipment-tuning process was uneventful and routine surgery was expected. Severe tissue injury occurred because the anterior chamber collapsed momentarily and the phaco tip touched corneoscleral tissue. We discuss mechanisms by which this type of injury(More)
To compare the immunogenicity of routine versus mass campaign doses of oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV), serum neutralizing antibodies were measured in 254 children before and after two mass vaccination campaigns in Jordan. Precampaign seroprevalences to poliovirus types 1, 2, and 3 in children who had received three, four, or five routine doses of OPV were(More)
