AIMS Collagen crosslinking treatment of progressive keratoconus using the photosensitiser riboflavin and ultraviolet A light of 370 nm wavelength has been shown to increase significantly the tensile strength of corneal collagen by about 300%. In keratoconus, interlamellar and interfibrillar slippage have been proposed as pathogenetic mechanisms. Therefore,(More)
Typically, oculomotor nerve schwannomas present with various degrees of oculomotor nerve palsy, ptosis, diplopia, pain in the distribution of the first branch of the trigeminal nerve3,4,9,12,13,15,16,18 and may be associated with neurofibromatosis type 2. In the literature, we found 3 case reports of an oculomotor nerve schwannoma mimicking ophthalmoplegic(More)
In a four-week-old child with female external and internal genitalia but with clitoris hypertrophy chromosome analysis from blood lymphocytes revealed a 46,XY karyotype. No deletion of Y chromosomal sequences was detected by PCR analysis of genomic DNA isolated from peripheral blood leucocytes. Because of the increased risk for gonadal tumours, gonadectomy(More)
SummaryThe purpose of the study was to determine prognostic significance of pretreatment serum levels of different molecules involved in cell to cell interactions along with other clinical parameters in patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. sICAM-1, sVCAM-1 and sELAM-1 serum levels were determined by ELISA assays in sera from 99 patients with(More)
SummaryInterleukin 10 (IL-10) is an immunosuppressive factor and has been detected in tumour cell cultures of renal cell carcinoma and of malignant melanoma. IL-10 has been described as a cytokine of the Th2 response; it is able to suppress antigen-presenting cells (APCs) and may lead to down-regulation of HLA class I and II molecules on dendritic cells and(More)
The value of tyrosinase messenger RNA (mRNA) detection by reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) as a marker for circulating melanoma cells remains controversial. However, it has been suggested that detection of melanoma cell mRNA may be used to evaluate prognosis and disease progression in patients with advanced malignant melanoma. We(More)
