OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy and safety of loteprednol etabonate 0.5%/tobramycin 0.3% (LE/T) and dexamethasone 0.1%/tobramycin 0.3% (DM/T) ophthalmic suspensions in a Chinese population with ocular inflammation associated with blepharokeratoconjunctivitis (BKC). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS This study was a multicenter, randomized,(More)
PURPOSE Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness in the world. To make progress in understanding POAG, it is necessary to identify more POAG-causing genes. METHODS Using haplotype analysis, we found that mutational region is located on chromosome 2 in two families. Furthermore, we screened 11 candidate(More)
Pterygium is a type of benign uncontrolled growth of the conjunctive tissue that lays over the sclera. It can significantly alter visual function in advanced cases and become inflamed, leading to redness and irritation in the area. Although the exact etiology of pterygium remains uncertain, recent advances have provided important insight into the(More)
Primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) is characterized by optic disc cupping and irreversible loss of retinal ganglion cells. Few genes have been detected that influence POAG susceptibility and little is known about its genetic architecture. In this study, we employed exome sequencing on three members from a high frequency POAG family to identify the risk(More)
PURPOSE To study the clinical features and to perform genetic linkage study in two large Chinese families with autosomal dominant juvenile-onset primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). METHODS Eighteen members of one Chinese family and 25 members of a second Chinese family with juvenile-onset primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) were investigated. Thirteen(More)
BACKGROUND The aim was to review all published studies that investigated the association between MYOC.mt1 polymorphism and the risk of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). MATERIAL/METHODS Electronic databases were searched for relevant articles in English. Inclusion and exclusion criteria were established according to the criteria of the Cochrane Methods(More)
Increased intraocular pressure is the main cause of glaucoma development. However, the systemic information of genes related to ocular hypertension has not yet been clarified. In the present study, oligomicroarray determined the profile of gene expression in the retina after ocular hypertension. A rat ocular hypertension model was constructed through(More)
We demonstrate a novel type of distributed optical fiber acoustic sensor, with the ability to detect and retrieve actual temporal waveforms of multiple vibration events that occur simultaneously at different positions along the fiber. The system is realized via a dual-pulse phase-sensitive optical time-domain reflectometry, and the actual waveform is(More)
PURPOSE Use immunohistochemical staining and Western Blot analysis to observe and compare the accurate dynamic changes of type I, III, V, VI collagen in the wound healing processes of the rabbit cornea which underwent LASEK or PRK to investigate the possible mechanism of corneal haze and myopic regression. METHODS New Zealand White rabbits were divided(More)
The overall diagnostic capabilities and utility of frequency-doubling technology (FDT) in patients with primary glaucoma, which was diagnosed by standard automated perimetry (SAP) and/or optic disc appearance as the gold standard, were assessed. A comprehensive electric retrieval in MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, BIOSIS, Previews, HMIC, IPA, OVID, CNKI,(More)
