The aim of our study was to compare the depth of the demarcation line developing in the cornea after the standard Dresden protocol versus the accelerated, pulsed, epithelium-off corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL).

The physicochemical properties of collagen casings were successfully improved by glutaraldehyde (GA) cross-linking, where the properties could be further regulated by drying temperature. Transverse di...
We examined the efficacy and preoperative characteristics that affect outcomes of accelerated (9 mW/cm for 10 minutes) corneal cross-linking (CXL).
Corneal Cross-linking (CXL) treatment is the unique treatment method that can cease the progression of keratoconus disease. Due to the long duration of conventional treatment, accelerated crosslinking...
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of accelerated contact lens-assisted cross-linking (A-CACXL) for patients with keratoconus and thin corneas.
the purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of a new method of corneal cross-linking that uses UV-A irradiation intensity of 9mW/cm2 for 7 minutes to well-known Accele...
Following the Bunsen-Roscoe law, accelerated cross-linking protocols with higher irradiation intensities and shorter irradiation times have been introduced. In addition, new riboflavin sol...
Compare different corneal parameters and visual outcome of corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) with conventional versus accelerated ultraviolet-A irradiation using riboflavin with hydroxy...
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...
Aim of work: - To detect abnormal corneal thinning in keratoconus using pachymetry maps measured by high-speed anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT). - To ...
Polyphenolic compounds with molecular weights of around 500-3000 daltons and containing enough hydroxyl groups (1-2 per 100 MW) for effective cross linking of other compounds (ASTRINGENTS). The two main types are HYDROLYZABLE TANNINS and CONDENSED TANNINS. Historically, the term has applied to many compounds and plant extracts able to render skin COLLAGEN impervious to degradation. The word tannin derives from the Celtic word for OAK TREE which was used for leather processing.
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.
Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of eye diseases. As well as mild visual defects correctable by lenses, ophthalmology is concerned with glaucoma, uveitis and other serious conditions affecting the eye, ...
