BACKGROUND For heterogeneous tissues, such as blood, measurements of gene expression are confounded by relative proportions of cell types involved. Conclusions have to rely on estimation of gene expression signals for homogeneous cell populations, e.g. by applying micro-dissection, fluorescence activated cell sorting, or in-silico deconfounding. We studied(More)
PURPOSE High-density lipoproteins (HDL) have long been implicated in the pathogenesis of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). However, conflicting results have been reported with regard to the associations of AMD with HDL-cholesterol levels. The present study is the first to assess HDL composition and metrics of HDL function in patients with exudative(More)

Fourteen patients with unilateral trigeminal neuropathy of unknown origin were examined 5 to 30 years after onset of the illness. In one patient, sensory loss in the area of the mental nerve was probably due to the pressure of the denture. In another three patients there were signs suggestive of multiple sclerosis. In the remaining ten patients there were(More)
