Impact of Systemic Corticosteroid Therapy on Lens Transparency and Quantification of Lens Autofluorescence.

2014-07-23 21:43:31 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Corticosteroid therapy is usually regarded as a risk factor for the development of posterior subcapsular cataracts but prospective studies on this topic and accurate assessment of this potential adverse effect are lacking. We will evaluate changes of lens transparency after administration of systemic corticosteroid therapy for at least one year with Scheimpflug photography and quantification of lens autofluorescence.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Autoantibodies directed against phospholipids. These antibodies are characteristically found in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS, SYSTEMIC;), ANTIPHOSPHOLIPID SYNDROME; related autoimmune diseases, some non-autoimmune diseases, and also in healthy individuals.

A PREDNISOLONE derivative with similar anti-inflammatory action.

A glucocorticoid with the general properties of the corticosteroids. It is the drug of choice for all conditions in which routine systemic corticosteroid therapy is indicated, except adrenal deficiency states.

A synthetic anti-inflammatory glucocorticoid derived from CORTISONE. It is biologically inert and converted to PREDNISOLONE in the liver.

Disorder characterized by a wide range of structural changes in PERITONEUM, resulting from fibrogenic or inflammatory processes. Peritoneal fibrosis is a common complication in patients receiving PERITONEAL DIALYSIS and contributes to its gradual decrease in efficiency.
