Intraocular liquid, in contrast to blood, has no cellular components; therefore, proteins (human serum albumin [HSA], and [alpha, beta, gamma] globulins) are the major components that determine patients' response to the intraocular lens (IOL) surface. In addition to the amount of adsorbed proteins, the possibility of its conformational changes, including(More)
Morphometric and cytospectrophotometric studies of the endothelium of human cornea in age aspect, from 20 to 80 years, has revealed the presence of nuclei with double content of DNA (4 c) irrespective of age, as well as binuclear cells. Their number increases with age. At the age of 20-40 years, 4 tetraploid nuclei and 3 binuclear cells were found, and(More)
The aim of this experimental study was to elucidate the contribution of the immune complexes to the formation of a secondary cataract. The immune complexes are formed after the lens extraction in case specific antibodies to the lens and its capsule and to the lens mass are present in the circulation. The immune complexes, fixed on the posterior capsule,(More)
The paper shows it possible to use the method of total internal reflection-fluorescence for study of the kinetics of protein adsorption onto the surface of intraocular lenses (IOL) made from optically transparent hydrophobic polymers and hydrogels. The nature of the materials (polymethylmethacrylate, silicone, p-HEMA, p-HEMA-collagen copolymer) used for IOL(More)
