Rapid and precise in vivo measurement of human corneal thickness with optical low-coherence reflectometry in normal human eyes.
An optical low-coherence reflectometer is used for rapid noncontact measurements of the human corneal thickness in vivo. Thickness measurements on ten volunteers show a standard deviation of 3.4 μm.Expand

Precision and Reproducibility of Measurements of Human Corneal Thickness with Rapid Optical Low-Coherence Reflectometry (OLCR).
This study investigates the precision and intraindividual variability of a clinical optical pachometer based on low-coherence reflectometry, which was used to measure the central thickness of a humanExpand

Persistent upregulation of μ‐opioid, but not adenosine, receptors in brains of long‐term withdrawn escalating dose “binge” cocaine‐treated rats
There is evidence showing that the opioid and adenosine systems play an important role in cocaine addiction; fewer studies have examined their roles in cocaine withdrawal. To determine whetherExpand

Catechol‐O‐methyltransferase (COMT) gene variants: Possible association of the Val158Met variant with opiate addiction in hispanic women
Catechol‐O‐methyltransferase (COMT) catalyzes the breakdown of catechol neurotransmitters, including dopamine, which plays a prominent role in drug reward. A common single nucleotide polymorphismExpand

Downregulation of κ‐opioid receptors in basolateral amygdala and septum of rats withdrawn for 14 days from an escalating dose “binge” cocaine administration paradigm
There is evidence showing that the opioid systems play an important role in cocaine addiction; fewer studies have examined their roles in cocaine withdrawal. This study was conducted to determineExpand

A Longitudinal Study of Adenoma Detection Rate in Gastroenterology Fellowship Training
BackgroundCurrent guidelines suggest that a gastroenterology fellow in training needs to perform 140 colonoscopies to achieve competency. Data are limited regarding adenoma detection rate (ADR) inExpand

Hyponatraemia and cirrhosis
Hyponatraemia is a common complication of advanced cirrhosis related to an impairment in the renal capacity for eliminating solute-free water, causing a retention of water that is disproportionate toExpand

-78-dB shot-noise limited optical low-coherence reflectometry at 42-m/s scan speed
We report, to our knowledge, the fastest longitudinal scans in optical low-coherence reflectometry published in literature. The use of a rotating glass cube as an optical path length variator resultsExpand
