AIMS To compare the susceptibility to parasitism by Ostertagia circumcincta of lambs fed entirely with bovine milk or weaned on to solid feed at 3 weeks of age. In addition, the effect of a single daily feed of milk on worm burdens was assessed. METHODS Eight lambs were assigned to each of the 3 diets: milk (M), milk plus solid feed (cereal-based pellets(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) inhibitor (Doxycycline) on retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cell migration induced by transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-beta 1). METHODS The third to sixth passage human RPE cells cultures were treated with TGF-beta 1 at different concentrations (0.01, 0.10, 1.00, 10.00(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the effect of hypoxia inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1 alpha) gene on the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in human retinal pigment epithelial (hRPE) cells under hypoxia conditions by using small hairpin loop RNA (shRNA) to silence HIF-1 alpha. METHODS CoCl(2) (150 micromol/L) was used to simulate the hypoxia(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the occurrence of enzymatic induction of posterior vitreous detachment (PVD) by the combination of Chondroitinase ABC (CA) and matrix metalloproteinase-3 (MMP-3), so as to seek a noninvasive and effective pharmacologic approach to facilitate and eventually replace the present mechanical vitreous surgery. METHODS Twenty-four(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the change of the level of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in aqueous humor of patients with neovascular glaucoma (NVG) before and after anterior retinal cryotherapy and investigate the effects of the fluctuation of VEGF on the neovascularization of iris. METHODS 28 patients with neovascular glaucoma were undergone iris(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the inhibitory effects of angiostatin on microvascular endothelial cells of mouse retina and test the efficacy of native angiostatin in suppressing experimental retinal neovascularization induced by oxygen. METHODS Angiostatin was purified with L-lysine Sepharose 4B from human plasma. The primary microvascular endothelial cells from(More)
AIM To examine the effects in vitro of bovine milk and milk products and soymilk on the motility of sheathed and exsheathed L3 Ostertagia circumcincta (also known as Teladorsagia circumcincta) as a measure of larval viability and infectivity. METHODS L3 were exsheathed in 0.2% sodium hypochlorite, resuspended in Hank's Balanced Salt Solution (HBSS) pH 7.4(More)
