This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of Microplasmin administered as an intravitreal injection, in subjects with focal vitreomacular adhesion. Ultimately, it is believed that intravitreal microplasmin may offer physicians a safe agent for pharmacologic vitreolysis and induction of Posterior Vitreous Detachment (PVD) without the need for vitrectomy. This clinical study is justified because the study sponsor believes the potential benefits outweigh the potential risks, as outlined below.

This trial will evaluate the safety and efficacy of microplasmin, administered as an intravitreal injection, in subjects with focal vitreomacular adhesion. In previously performed clinical...
The objective of this trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of intravitreal microplasmin 125ug dose in subjects wiht focal vitreomacular adhesion.
This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of Microplasmin intravitreal injection, in subjects diagnosed with exudative AMD with focal vitreomacular adhesion. Ultimately, it is beli...
A multicenter study to compare multiple doses of intravitreal microplasmin for non-surgical PVD induction for treatment of patients with vitreomacular traction.
The purpose of this study is to observe the anatomical and functional outcomes of ocriplasmin (JETREA®) over a 6-month follow-up period.
Cells have evolved into complicated sensory machines that can signal back and forth with their (micro)environment. Extracellular mechanical cues trigger complex biochemical pathways inside cells, whic...
Adherent cells sense the physical properties of their environment via focal adhesions. Improved understanding of how cells sense and response to their physical surroundings is aided by quantitative ev...
We assessed focal adhesion kinase (FAK) response to concentric (CON) versus eccentric (ECC) resistance training (RT) at two vastus lateralis (VL) sites, and the relationships between FAK, muscle prote...
Focal adhesions anchor cells to extracellular matrix (ECM) and direct assembly of a pre-stressed actin cytoskeleton. They act as a cellular sensor and regulator, linking ECM to the nucleus. Here, we i...
Cell-extracellular matrix (ECM) adhesion is an important property of virtually all cells in multicellular organisms. Cell-ECM adhesion studies, therefore, are very significant both for biology and med...
A non-receptor protein tyrosine kinase that is localized to FOCAL ADHESIONS and is a central component of integrin-mediated SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION PATHWAYS. Focal adhesion kinase 1 interacts with PAXILLIN and undergoes PHOSPHORYLATION in response to adhesion of cell surface integrins to the EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX. Phosphorylated p125FAK protein binds to a variety of SH2 DOMAIN and SH3 DOMAIN containing proteins and helps regulate CELL ADHESION and CELL MIGRATION.
A non-receptor protein-tyrosine kinase that is expressed primarily in the BRAIN; OSTEOBLASTS; and LYMPHOID CELLS. In the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM focal adhesion kinase 2 modulates ION CHANNEL function and MITOGEN-ACTIVATED PROTEIN KINASES activity.
Paxillin is a signal transducing adaptor protein for CELL MIGRATION that localizes primarily to FOCAL ADHESIONS. It undergoes PHOSPHORYLATION in response to integrin-mediated CELL ADHESION, and interacts with a variety of proteins including VINCULIN; FOCAL ADHESION KINASE; PROTO-ONCOGENE PROTEIN PP60(C-SRC); and PROTO-ONCOGENE PROTEIN C-CRK.
Cell adhesion molecules that mediate neuron-neuron adhesion and neuron-astrocyte adhesion. They are expressed on neurons and Schwann cells, but not astrocytes and are involved in neuronal migration, neurite fasciculation, and outgrowth. Ng-CAM is immunologically and structurally distinct from NCAM.
A family of non-receptor, PROLINE-rich protein-tyrosine kinases.
