Prospective, randomized multicenter study to determine the safety and effectiveness of performing corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) using riboflavin and UVA light in eyes with ectasia after refractive surgery.
Subjects are randomized to a control group or a treatment group, with the control group crossed over to the treatment group at the 3 month visit. Fellow eyes may be treated at 3 months or later. Corneal collagen cross-linking is performed as a single treatment. Subjects are followed for 12 months after the procedure to evaluate the long term effects of corneal collagen cross-linking.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This is a hospital-based interventional prospective study. Patients with clinical keratoconus or LASIK keratectasia presenting to the Singapore National Eye Centre who meet the eligibility...
Corneal ectasia is a relative weakness in the structure of the cornea, which produces a progressive change in its shape which results in visual distortion. It is known that collagen cross...

This study will determine the efficacy of collagen cross linking for progressive keratoconus and ectasia after lasik. It will try and determine which is a more effective treatment: collage...
This is a compassionate treatment protocol for the use of the UV-X system for corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) in eyes with progressive keratoconus in patients who have conditions that...
To evaluate the biomechanical effects of collagen cross-linking by riboflavin/blue light (460 nm) on human sclera.
The effect of ultraviolet (UV)-riboflavin cross-linking (CXL) has been measured primarily using the strip extensometry technique. We propose a simple and reliable methodology for the assessment of CXL...
To report the clinical outcomes with 24-month follow-up of transepithelial cross-linking using a combination of a D-alpha-tocopheryl polyethylene-glycol 1000 succinate (vitamin E-TPGS)-enhanced ribofl...
The aim of this study was to evaluate riboflavin in rabbit corneas before and after corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) using confocal laser scanning microscopy.
Keratoconus is a bilateral non-inflammatory corneal disease. Collagen cross-linking (CXL) is a new treatment option for the disease that uses ultraviolet A light irradiation and riboflavin administrat...
An enzyme that catalyzes the formation of riboflavin from two molecules of 6,7-dimethyl-8-ribityllumazine, utilizing a four-carbon fragment from one molecule which is transferred to the second molecule. EC 184.108.40.206.
Enzyme which catalyzes the peptide cross-linking of nascent CELL WALL; PEPTIDOGLYCAN.
One of the protein CROSS-LINKING REAGENTS that is used as a disinfectant for sterilization of heat-sensitive equipment and as a laboratory reagent, especially as a fixative.
A naturally occurring furocoumarin, found in PSORALEA. After photoactivation with UV radiation, it binds DNA via single and double-stranded cross-linking.
An antineoplastic antibiotic produced by Streptomyces caespitosus. It is one of the bi- or tri-functional ALKYLATING AGENTS causing cross-linking of DNA and inhibition of DNA synthesis.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
