OBJECTIVES Vitreoschisis is a possible pathogenic mechanism in macular diseases. Thus, the vitreoretinal interface was evaluated in monkey eyes and patients with various macular diseases in search of vitreoschisis. It is hypothesised that vitreoschisis is present in macular holes (MH) and macular pucker (MP), but not in other maculopathies. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE A safe, effective adhesive could be useful in the management of retinal holes or tears and selected complicated retinal detachments, as well as for attaching a small electronic device (retinal prosthesis) to the retina. In this study, we examined nine commercially available compounds for their suitability as intraocular adhesives. (More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine the effects of circumferential pulmonary vein ablation (CPVA) and electrogram-guided ablation (EGA) on the spectral characteristics of atrial fibrillation (AF) and the relationship between changes in dominant frequency (DF) and clinical outcome. BACKGROUND Circumferential pulmonary vein ablation and EGA(More)
This study demonstrates the application of Wavelength-Scanned Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (WS-CRDS) technology which is used to measure the stable isotopic composition of water. This isotopic water analyzer incorporates an evaporator system that allows liquid water as well as water vapor to be measured with high precision. The analyzer can measure(More)
PURPOSE The pathogenesis of macular pucker and macular holes is poorly understood. Anomalous posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) and vitreoschisis have been proposed as possible mechanisms. This study used clinical imaging to seek vitreoschisis and study the topographic features of macular pucker and macular holes. METHODS Combined optical coherence(More)
Biofilms contain group(s) of microorganisms that are found to be associated with the biotic and abiotic surfaces. Biofilms contain either homogenous or heterogeneous populations of bacteria which remain in the matrix made up of extracellular polymeric substances secreted by constituent population of the biofilm. Biofilms can be either single or(More)
Nine single genetic mutants of rat dihydropteridine reductase (EC 1.6.99.7), D37I, W86I, Y146F, Y146H, K150Q, K150I, K150M, N186A, and A133S and one double mutant, Y146F/K150Q, have been engineered, overexpressed in Escherichia coli and their proteins purified. Of these, five, W86I, Y146F, Y146H, Y146F/K150Q, and A133S, have been crystallized and(More)
Various programs for genetic improvement in oil yield of the biofuel plant Jatropha curcas L. are currently in progress worldwide. In order to develop strategies for genetic improvement, it is important to estimate the degree of diversity at the genetic level among various genotypes of J. curcas. High-throughput sequencing of complexity-reduced nuclear(More)
BACKGROUND Age estimation is an important factor in the identification of an individual in forensic science. The hard tissues of the human dentition are able to resist decay and degradation, long after other tissues are lost. This resistance has made teeth useful indicators for age calculation. Recent research has indicated that Tooth Cementum Annulations(More)
Use of alcohol is a worldwide habit regardless of socio-economic background. Heavy alcohol consumption is a potential risk factor for induction of pancreatitis. The current review cites the updated literature on the alcohol metabolism, its effects on gastrointestinal and pancreatic function and in causing pancreatic injury, genetic predisposition of alcohol(More)
