Elevated Levels of Oxidized Low Density Lipoprotein Show a Positive Relationship With the Severity of Acute Coronary Syndromes
It is demonstrated that ox-LDL levels show a significant positive correlation with the severity of acute coronary syndromes and that the more severe lesions also contain a significantly higher percentage of ox- LDL–positive macrophages.
A mutation in the Pax-6 gene in rat small eye is associated with impaired migration of midbrain crest cells
Anterior midbrain crest cells in the homozygous rSey embryos reached the eye rudiments but did not migrate any further to the nasal rudiments, suggesting that the Pax-6 gene is involved in conducting migration of neural crest cells from the anterior midbrain.
Telomere Shortening in Human Coronary Artery Diseases
Findings suggest that focal replicative senescence and telomere shortening of endothelial cells may play a critical role in coronary atherogenesis and CAD.
Incidence of ocular complications in rheumatoid arthritis and the relation of keratoconjunctivitis sicca with its systemic activity.
The incidence of ocular complications was comparable to the previous studies and keratoconjunctivitis sicca should be considered in patients with high titers of rheumatoid factor.
Feeder vessel photocoagulation of subfoveal choroidal neovascularization secondary to age-related macular degeneration.
Feeder vessel photocoagulation should be considered as a treatment option for subfoveal CNV secondary to age-related macular degeneration, because no other treatment method has a better visual outcome.
Long-term follow-up results of observation or radiation for conjunctival malignant lymphoma.
To elucidate the long-term prognosis of biopsy-proven malignant lymphoma of conjunctival origin after a treatment option of observation or radiation, a large fraction of patients with MALT lymphomas of conjuctival origin had spontaneous regression after the biopsy.
The Prevalence of Strabismus and Amblyopia in Japanese Elementary School Children
The prevalence rates of strabismus and amblyopia in this population of Japanese elementary school children were lower than those reported in Western countries and the exotropia/esotropia ratio was increased in comparison with past studies in Japan.

A way to measure the changing levels of a specific messenger RNA in living cells is opened by examining whether messenger RNA for basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) could be visualized specifically by a fluorescent probe in live cells.
Surgical treatment of submacular hemorrhage associated with idiopathic polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy.
Surgical intervention may be of benefit in eyes with submacular hemorrhage associated with idiopathic polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy, and the best-corrected visual acuity improved or stabilized in seven of the eight eyes.
A novel gene (oculomedin) induced by mechanical stretching in human trabecular cells of the eye.
To understand molecular mechanisms underlying the response to pressure in human trabecular cells of the eye, genes induced by cyclic mechanical stretching were isolated by subtractive hybridization
