To explore the associations between diffuse chorioretinal atrophy (DCA) and age, sex, axial length, spherical equivalent, and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) among highly myopic eyes.

Interface dominated dielectric response of PS-Fe3O4 patchy microspheres.

Polymeric-inorganic interface plays a vital role in enhancing dielectric properties of patchy microspheres, Janus particles, and nanocomposites. We performed the computational modelling and simulation...

mutation as the cause of various clinical manifestations in a family affected with inherited retinal dystrophy.

: To reveal the underlying genetic defect in a complex family affected with different clinical features of inherited retinal dystrophy, we carried out whole exome sequencing followed by confirmatory m...

CUTICULAR DRUSEN: Risk of Geographic Atrophy and Macular Neovascularization.

Cuticular drusen (CD) have been associated with manifestations of age-related macular degeneration such as atrophy and neovascularization in the macula. In this study, eyes with CD were followed and i...

Prospective Longitudinal Evaluation of Nascent Geographic Atrophy in Age-Related Macular Degeneration.

Nascent geographic atrophy (nGA) describes features on OCT imaging previously observed to precede the development of atrophy. This study sought to prospectively evaluate the predictive ability of nGA ...

Characterization of Early Markers of Choroidal Neovascularization

To this study and identify the sequence of alterations occurring in the chorioretinal interface during progression of AMD from "dry" AMD to sight-threatening chorioretinal neovascularizati...

A Prospective Multicenter Study of Different Surgical Methods in the Treatment of High Myopic Macular Schisis

In view of the current problem of treating high myopic macular schisis, the main purpose of our study is to find out the most appropriate time of surgical intervention, to compare the effe...

Effects of Macular Buckle Versus Vitrectomy on Macular Schisis and Macular Detachment in Highly Myopic Eyes

Macular schisis associated with macular detachment is a one of the complications of high myopia. There is controversy in the primary treatment for this situation. This study will compare t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A form of MACULAR DEGENERATION also known as dry macular degeneration marked by occurrence of a well-defined progressive lesion or atrophy in the central part of the RETINA called the MACULA LUTEA. It is distinguishable from WET MACULAR DEGENERATION in that the latter involves neovascular exudates.

A microscopically inflammatory, usually reversible, patchy hair loss occurring in sharply defined areas and usually involving the beard or scalp. (Dorland, 27th ed)

Dominant optic atrophy is a hereditary optic neuropathy causing decreased visual acuity, color vision deficits, a centrocecal scotoma, and optic nerve pallor (Hum. Genet. 1998; 102: 79-86). Mutations leading to this condition have been mapped to the OPA1 gene at chromosome 3q28-q29. OPA1 codes for a dynamin-related GTPase that localizes to mitochondria.

A common interstitial lung disease of unknown etiology, usually occurring between 50-70 years of age. Clinically, it is characterized by an insidious onset of breathlessness with exertion and a nonproductive cough, leading to progressive DYSPNEA. Pathological features show scant interstitial inflammation, patchy collagen fibrosis, prominent fibroblast proliferation foci, and microscopic honeycomb change.

A maternally linked genetic disorder that presents in mid-life as acute or subacute central vision loss leading to central scotoma and blindness. The disease has been associated with missense mutations in the mtDNA, in genes for Complex I, III, and IV polypeptides, that can act autonomously or in association with each other to cause the disease. (from Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man,, MIM#535000 (April 17, 2001))
