Keratoprosthetics refer to the replacement of human corneal tissue with an artificially produced exchange product. The most widely implanted keratoprosthesis worldwide is the Boston Type I Keratoprosthesis (BI-KPro, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Boston, MA, USA).
To examine maternal folic acid supplementation and plasma folate concentrations in the Boston Birth Cohort, a predominantly urban, low-income, minority population in Boston, Massachusetts.
To compare the outcomes of Boston keratoprosthesis type 1 implantation after failed keratoplasty in patients who are blind or sighted in the contralateral eye.
To evaluate the long-term outcomes of Boston type I keratoprosthesis (B-Kpro) in the management of patients with ocular burn injuries.
The Boston keratoprosthesis (KPro) is the most commonly used artificial cornea. It has been proven to be successful for severe corneal disease not amenable to keratoplasty. We have observed our patients reporting debilitating glare despite attaining good visual acuities. This motivated us to objectively measure light scatter in eyes with a KPro.
Extravagant claims were made for proprietary dental anesthetics in Boston, MA, in the late 1800s. For instance, in 1883, Urial K. Mayo introduced an inhaled Vegetable Anaesthetic comprised of nitrous oxide that had been uselessly pretreated with botanical material. This misguided concept may have been inspired by homeopathy, but it was also in line with the earlier false belief of Elton R. Smilie, Charles T. Jackson, and William T.G. Morton that sulfuric ether could volatilize opium at room temperature. In ...
To evaluate microbiota colonizing soft contact lenses (CL) in eyes with Boston type I keratoprosthesis (BKPro), and determine the prevalence of resistance to fourth-generation fluoroquinolone (FQ).
To analyse the anatomical and functionaloutcomes of Boston type II keratoprosthesis at a tertiary eye care centre in South India. Retrospective chart review of 10 patients operated with Boston keratoprosthesis Type 2 between Feb 2013 and June 2017 were analysed. Outcome measures analysed included, visual outcome, device retention and postoperative complications. The most common indication for surgery was SJS in 80% (8 of 10 eyes). Mean follow-up duration was 2.75 years (0.5-5 years, SD - 1.71, median 32...
To report the outcomes of the Boston type I keratoprosthesis (KPro) as the primary penetrating corneal procedure.
Impairments in the Boston Naming Test (BNT), which measures confrontational word retrieval, frequently accompanies Alzheimer's dementia (AD) and may predict a more rapid progression of illness. This study aims to validate the Thai version of the 15-item BNT (T-BNT) in participants with AD and amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) and to externally validate the T-BNT using clinical and biomarker measurements.
This study examined men's participation and performance in the Boston Marathon. Data from all 368,940 official male finishers in the Boston Marathon from 1897 through 2017 were analyzed using different analyses and regression models for all runners, annual top hundred finishers, annual top ten finishers and annual winners. Effect of calendar year on race time was examined alone, in a uni-variable model, and together with country of origin and weather conditions (average air temperature and precipitation) in...
Pragmatic studies have gained popularity, thus emphasizing the need for patient-reported outcomes (PRO) to be integrated into electronic health records.
Community Servings, a not-for-profit organization in the Boston area, delivers medically tailored meals that take into account the nutritional needs of people with chronic illnesses. The idea is to ensure that a patient's food addresses his or her specific health conditions.
Many U.S. cities have implemented Summer Youth Employment Programs (SYEPs) with the hope of improving long-term behavioral, academic, and economic outcomes among program participants, particularly inner-city, low-income, and non-white youth. While recent empirical studies show positive impacts for some outcomes, little is known about program mechanisms and the potential to reduce inequality across groups. Using an embedded randomized control trial, this study evaluates improvements in short-term outcomes fo...
To use publicly available, crowdsourced data to understand geospatial trends in discarded needles.
Recent studies in the US and abroad suggest that boys are undergoing puberty at a younger age. It is unknown if this secular trend extends to boys with central precocious puberty (CPP), who sit at the extreme end of the pubertal spectrum, and if neuroimaging should remain a standard diagnostic tool.
David Levine, MD, of Boston's Brigham and Women's hospital, is spearheading a program in which hospital level care is delivered to patients' homes. It's a research project for now. Eligible candidates who decide to participate are randomly assigned either to an inpatient-care control group or to Levine's "Home Hospital."
To evaluate the association between habitual physical activity engagement and changes in cognitive function among Puerto Rican adults.
Leptin is a proinflammatory cytokine that plays an important role in energy homeostasis. Emerging evidence suggests that leptin levels are altered in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD); however, this has not been studied prospectively. Rapid growth during infancy and early childhood has been implicated in ASD, but the evidence is inconsistent. As leptin is involved in growth and is a potential risk factor for ASD, we explored the associations between (a) cord, early childhood leptin and ASD; and (...
Effectiveness of colonoscopy as a screening tool for colorectal cancer prevention depends on the quality of bowel preparation. The type of bowel preparation agent prescribed is largely dependent on the prescriber's preference, indicating a lack of standard. A retrospective study (N = 84) compared the quality of bowel preparation using 2-L split-dose polyethylene glycol prep (MoviPrep) to other standard bowel preparations. Colonic mucosa visualized using the Boston Bowel Preparation Scale, cecal intubation i...
