The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 21 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books. BioPortfolio aims to publish relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with users selected topics.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the aqueous humor Endocan and Endostatin levels in patients with pseudoexfoliation syndrome (PEX) and to compare the results with healthy individuals.
Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is a multifactorial optic neuropathy characterized by progressive retinal ganglion cell death and visual field loss. Some speculate that gender plays a role in the risk of developing POAG and that the physiologic differences between men and women may be attributed to the variable effects of sex hormones on intraocular pressure (IOP), ocular blood flow, and/or neuroprotection. Estrogen, in the form of premenopausal status, pregnancy, and post-menopausal hormone therapy is a...
XEN® gel stent is a minimally invasive surgical device aimed at creating a subconjunctival drainage of aqueous humor, thereby reducing intraocular pressure (IOP). Being a novel device, doubts remain regarding the efficacy and safety of its implantation in the early stage of new users. This paper illustrates the XEN® implantation learning curve, assessed through several surgeons of different expertise.
To investigate factors associated with decreased corneal endothelial cell density (ECD) after trabeculectomy with mitomycin C (MMC).
In recent years, minimally-invasive glaucoma surgery has emerged as a novel approach to lowering intraocular pressure (IOP). This technique, which is usually reserved for mild to moderate cases, is less invasive than classic filtration surgery and potentially offers a better safety profile. The XEN Gel Stent is implanted through a minimally-invasive, ab interno procedure to create a subconjunctival pathway. Conjunctival tissue disruption is minimal and flow is restricted to avoid hypotony. Data on the optim...
To investigate the effects of monocular visual field loss severity on binocular visual field loss in primary angle-closure glaucoma, primary open angle glaucoma and normal tension glaucoma patients.
To determine the repeatability and reproducibility of a new Pattern Electroretinography (PERG) device in healthy subjects.
To investigate the association between factors associated with parturition and open-angle glaucoma (OAG) in Korean females.
Head tilt can have an impact on the orientation of posterior pole images. We conducted this study to determine the effect of head tilt on image orientation measured by the fovea-Bruch's membrane opening (FoBMO) angle with optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging.
To report on the frequency, efficacy, and safety of laser goniopuncture (LGP) in lowering IOP following mitomycin-C augmented non-penetrating deep sclerectomy (NPDS) in a large cohort of eyes.
To report a case of panscleritis after gonioscopy-assisted transluminal trabeculotomy (GATT).
To investigate the prevalence of normal intraocular pressure (IOP) at first visit among patients with primary angle closure glaucoma (PACG) and their ocular characteristics.
To determine the five-year success rate for Baerveldt glaucoma implant (BGI) in patients who received the implant as a primary (primary BGI, used as the initial surgical procedure) or secondary (secondary BGI, used after trabeculectomy) by a single surgeon between year 1994 and 2010.
To detect changes of metabolites and explore cortical plasticity at the metabolic level within the primary visual cortex through proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy in early open angle glaucoma patients.
Reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) in primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) is currently the only approach to prevent further optic nerve head damage. However, other mechanisms such as ischemia, oxidative stress, glutamate excitotoxicity, neurotrophin loss, inflammation/glial activation, and vascular dysregulation are not addressed. Because stress is a key risk factor affecting these mechanisms, we evaluated if mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) can lower IOP and normalize typical stress biomarkers.
To compare the effects of laser iridotomy (LI) and pilocarpine on iridocorneal angle and anterior chamber structure in anatomically narrow angles (ANA).
To investigate, in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) and healthy subjects, the pattern and magnitude of diurnal variation in macular choroidal thickness (mCT).
To evaluate herpesvirus infection in patients with corneal endotheliitis and high intraocular pressure (IOP) using multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in aqueous humor samples.
To report a case of secondary pulmonary hypertension, choroidal detachment, and increased intraocular pressure in a patient with a congenital ventricular septal defect.
The purpose of this case series is to report development of Acute Secondary Optic Neuropathy due to optic nerve injury associated with single episode of acutely raised intraocular pressure of varying aetiologies.
Orbital cellulitis is a rare complication of aqueous tube shunt surgery. Nine cases have been described in the literature, though the microbiologic etiology is rarely reported. Management with intravenous antibiotics and/or explantation has been described.
