In the neural retina, glial cells control formation of ionic gradients by mediating transmembrane water fluxes through aquaporin (AQP) water channels. Retinal content and immunolocalization of two water channels, AQP1 and AQP4, in the diabetic rat retinas during high-salt loading were examined in this study. Diabetes was induced by an intraperitoneal(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to compare retinal vessel anatomy of normal rhesus monkeys and humans and to provide a basis from a structural perspective for the use of rhesus monkey as an experimental model in future studies of retinal vessels. METHODS The retinas of six normal rhesus monkey eyes and eight human eyecups following corneal transplantation were(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the variation of macular light sensitivity (MLS) in myopic Chinese adults by using microperimetry. METHODS MLS was recorded with the MP1 microperimeter (Nidek Technologies, Padova, Italy) in eyes affected by various degrees of myopia. Subjects were divided into group A (18-30 years) and group B (31-60 years). Subjects in both age(More)
BACKGROUND Mobile learning (mLearning) uses wireless networks and mobile devices to expand physician trainees' and healthcare providers' access to and exchange of medical information. Opportunities to increase implementation and expand use of mobile devices to support health care information access and delivery in Africa are vast, but the rapid growth of(More)
