Outcome of Different IOLs in Patients With and Without Uveitis

Cataract, is a clouding of the lens in the eye gradually leading to reduction of the visual acuity. In most cases it can be managed with surgery, removing the own lens and replacing it with an artificial lens, intraocular lens (IOL). These lenses are made in different materials with different properties.

Uveitis refers to an inflammation in the iris, ciliary body and choroid. Patients with this disease have an increased risk of developing cataract due to the inflammation itself and treatment with steroids. They also have an increased risk of complications during surgery and postoperatively. In this group the selection of IOL might be of greater importance.

The aim of this prospective randomized controlled study is to compare the outcome of hydrophobic and hydrophilic intraocular lenses in patients with and without uveitis

Fluorescence quenching study on the interaction of ferroferric oxide nanoparticles with bovine serum albumin.

Fluorescence quenching was used to study the potential interaction mechanism of Bovine serum albumin (BSA) with either hydrophilic ferroferric oxide (Fe3O4) nanoparticles (NPs) or hydrophobic Fe3O4 NP...

Hydrophobic-Hydrophilic Forces in Protein Folding.

The process of protein folding is obviously driven by forces exerted on the atoms of the amino-acid chain. These forces arise from interactions with other parts of the protein itself (Direct forces), ...

New developments in uveitis associated with HLA B27.

Uveitis is the most common, clinically apparent, extra-articular manifestation of axial spondyloarthritis. This review summarizes recent publications related to this form of uveitis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The thermodynamic interaction between a substance and WATER.

Single-chain polypeptides of about 65 amino acids (7 kDa) from LEECHES that have a neutral hydrophobic N terminus, an acidic hydrophilic C terminus, and a compact, hydrophobic core region. Recombinant hirudins lack tyr-63 sulfation and are referred to as 'desulfato-hirudins'. They form a stable non-covalent complex with ALPHA-THROMBIN, thereby abolishing its ability to cleave FIBRINOGEN.

Purifying or cleansing agents, usually salts of long-chain aliphatic bases or acids, that exert cleansing (oil-dissolving) and antimicrobial effects through a surface action that depends on possessing both hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties.

Human histocompatibility (HLA) surface antigen encoded by the B locus on chromosome 6. It is strongly associated with acute anterior uveitis (UVEITIS, ANTERIOR); ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; and REACTIVE ARTHRITIS.

Inflammation of the choroid as well as the retina and vitreous body. Some form of visual disturbance is usually present. The most important characteristics of posterior uveitis are vitreous opacities, choroiditis, and chorioretinitis.
