We investigated whether altering Warburg metabolism (aerobic glycolysis) by treatment with the metabolic agent dichloroacetate (DCA) could increase the X-ray-induced cell killing of the radiation-resistant human non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines A549 and H1299. Treatment with 50mM DCA decreased lactate production and glucose consumption in both(More)
This paper presents an overview of the common types of corneal staining that are encountered when wearing contact lenses. Included are descriptions of corneal staining occurring with rigid lenses (polymethylmethacrylate and cellulose acetate buterate), various types of hydrophilic lenses and silicone lenses. Specific patterns of sodium fluorescein staining(More)
A clinical study of 100 patients fit with gas permeable contact lenses (cellulose acetate butyrate) reveals a 79% success rate. The authors found good eye physiological response with minimum corneal edema, minimum corneal staining, no increase in follicular hypertrophy and minimum spectacle blur.
