METHODS In this 3-year prospective clinical trial, 161 subjects were enrolled and 154 commenced extended wear. Clinical performance was assessed by comparing discontinuations and lens surface characteristics (front surface(More)
Chemotherapy-induced diarrhea (cid) is a common side effect of cancer treatment and can cause significant morbidity and mortality. Diarrhea is frequently severe enough to require a dose reduction of, a delay in, or a discontinuation of chemotherapy. Diarrhea-associated mortality has been reported to be as high as 3.5% in clinical trials of irinotecan and(More)
