PURPOSE To evaluate prevalence and associated factors for myopia in high school students in Beijing. METHODS Grade 10 and 11 high school students were randomly selected from nine randomly selected districts of Beijing. The students underwent non-cylcoplegic auto-refractometry and an interview. RESULTS Out of 4798 eligible students, 4677 (93.4%) students(More)
JASMONATE ZIM-domain (JAZ) proteins play important roles in plant defence and growth by regulating jasmonate signalling. Through data mining, we discovered that the JAZ7 gene was up-regulated in darkness. In the dark, the jaz7 mutant displayed more severe leaf yellowing, quicker chlorophyll degradation, and higher hydrogen peroxide accumulation compared(More)
PURPOSE To assess prevalence, size and location of peripapillary intrachoroidal cavitations (PICCs) and their associations in a population-based sample. . METHODS The population-based Beijing Eye Study 2011 included 3468 individuals with a mean age of 64.6 ± 9.8 years (range:50-93 years). A detailed ophthalmic examination included enhanced depth imaging(More)
PURPOSE To examine potential associations between body height, cerebrospinal fluid pressure (CSFP), trans-lamina cribrosa pressure difference (TLCPD) and prevalence of open-angle glaucoma (OAG) in a population-based setting. METHODS The population-based Beijing Eye Study 2011 included 3468 individuals with a mean age of 64.6 ± 9.8 years (range:50-93(More)
PURPOSE To assess factors associated with myopia in school children in rural and urban parts of Greater Beijing. METHODS The Beijing Pedriatic Eye Study was a population-based cross-sectional study, in which one school of each level (primary, junior high, senior high) was randomly selected from nine randomly selected districts out of 18 districts of(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of using amniotic fluid mesenchymal stem cells (AF-MSCs) in targeted ovarian cancer therapy in vivo. AF-MSCs were isolated from human second trimester AF and a plasmid, enhanced green fluorescent protein‑human interleukin‑2 (pEGFP‑hIL‑2) was formed. The plasmid was stably transfected into the(More)
To determine the prevalence, associated factors, awareness and control of dyslipidemia in Chinese living in Greater Beijing, we measured the serum cholesterol concentration in 3251 Chinese adults (age: 45 to 89 years) as participants of the population-based Beijing Eye Study 2006. Additional information on treatment of dyslipidemia was obtained using a(More)
PURPOSE To determine prevalence and associations of incomplete posterior vitreous detachment (PVD). METHODS The population-based cross-sectional Beijing Eye Study 2011 included 3468 individuals with a mean age of 64.6±9.8 years (range: 50-93 years). A detailed ophthalmic examination was performed including spectral-domain optical coherence tomography(More)
PURPOSE We measured scleral thickness in eyes of Chinese, and assessed interregional differences and associations with age and axial length. METHODS Using light microscopy, we histomorphometrically measured scleral thickness at various locations in eyeballs from Chinese patients that had been enucleated due to retinoblastoma, uveal melanoma, or absolute(More)
PURPOSE To measure retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness in a population-based setting. METHODS In the population-based Beijing Eye Study 2011 with 3468 individuals, RNFL thickness was measured in a subgroup of 1654 (47.7%) study participants by spectral domain optical coherence tomography (iVue SD-OCT). RESULTS Mean RNFL thickness was(More)
