PURPOSE To evaluate the control of ocular inflammation and the steroid sparing effect in patients with sarcoidosis-associated uveitis treated with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF). METHODS Retrospective case series. All patients with a diagnosis of sarcoidosis-associated uveitis that were treated with MMF between 2005 and 2007 were identified. The dose and(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of biologic response modifiers (BRMs) in the treatment of patients with psoriatic ocular inflammatory disease. METHODS The records of 8 patients diagnosed with psoriatic ocular inflammatory disease who received adalimumab or infliximab were reviewed. Main outcome measures were control of intraocular(More)
Wingless (Wg) and other Wnt proteins play a crucial role in a number of developmental decisions in a variety of organisms. In the ventral nerve cord of the Drosophila embryo, Wg is non-autonomously required for the formation and specification of a neuronal precursor cell, NB4-2. NB4-2 gives rise to a well-studied neuronal lineage, the RP2/sib lineage. While(More)
WIMAX is Wireless Interoperability for Microwave Access. It is a telecommunication technology that provides wireless data over long distances in several ways, from point-to-point links to full mobile cellular type access. The main consideration of Mobile Wimax is to achieve seamless handover such that there is no loss of data. In Wimax both mobile station(More)
BACKGROUND Scleritis is a potentially blinding inflammatory disorder. Standard care consists of systemic corticosteroids and immunosuppresants. The authors describe a series of 10 patients suffering from scleritis treated with the TNF inhibitor infliximab because this scleritis was refractory to standard therapy. METHODS The authors reviewed the medical(More)
PURPOSE To describe whether subconjunctival bevacizumab decreases corneal neovascularization in patients with ocular surface inflammatory diseases. METHODS The study is a retrospective case series that includes 8 eyes of 7 patients with corneal neovascularization. Patients received 1-3 injections of 2.5 mg subconjunctival bevacizumab. Morphologic changes(More)
PURPOSE This study aims to describe surgical management results and the pathologic features of choroidal neovascularization (CNV) secondary to punctate inner choroidopathy (PIC) following anti-vascular endothelial growth factor treatment. DESIGN This study is a case report on the surgical management and ultrastructural study of choroidal(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of immunohistochemical methods in the diagnosis of benign and malignant conjunctival melanocytic proliferations. DESIGN Retrospective immunohistopathologic study. METHODS Paraffin-embedded tissue sections from 20 conjunctival nevi and 15 invasive melanomas were immunoreacted with antibodies against cellular antigens S-100(More)
