Macrophages were used to induce an experimental model of proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) for the evaluation of drug efficacy of triamcinolone acetonide in the prevention of PVR. After injection of macrophages into the rabbit vitreous, 1 mg of triamcinolone and 0.1 ml saline, respectively, were also injected into the vitreous of the treated group and(More)
The aim of this paper is to determine if autophagic cell death is associated with apoptosis and whether it participates in the process of term amniotic rupture. Forty pieces of fresh term amnions, including twenty from a position near the margin of the placentas and twenty from the margin of the naturally ruptured part of the placentas in term gestation(More)
Programmed cell death (PCD) is used by plants for development and survival to biotic and abiotic stresses. The role of caspases in PCD is well established in animal cells. Over the past 15 years, the importance of caspase-3-like enzymatic activity for plant PCD completion has been widely documented despite the absence of caspase orthologues. In particular,(More)
The survival behaviour of Vibrio cholerae in cholera epidemics, together with its attributes of virulence-associated genes and molecular fingerprints, are significant for managing cholera epidemics. Here, we selected five strains representative of V. cholerae O1 and O139 involved in cholera events, examined their survival capacity in large volumes of water(More)
5 cases of intracanalicular optic nerve injury were treated with decompression by the transorbital-sphenoethmoidal approach. The methodology and a typical case were presented. The indications and principles of the operation were discussed. The authors deemed the procedure facile, safe and with few complications, hence worthy of recommendation for early(More)
