Collagen Crosslinking With Ultraviolet-A in Asymmetric Corneas

2014-08-27 03:17:36 | BioPortfolio


To evaluate the efficacy of ultraviolet-A (UVA)-induced cross-linking of corneal collagen (CXL) as a method to increase the biomechanical and biochemical stability of the cornea by inducing additional cross-links within or between collagen fibers using UVA light and the photo- mediator riboflavin. The purpose of this study is to generate data for presentation at medical meetings and for peer-review publication

The efficacy of intratympanic steroid injection for the treatment of idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss.

A systemic steroid is known to have a potential to recover hearing after idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSHL). However, lately many centres have introduced the use of intratympanic (IT...

Prevention Esophageal Stricture with Steroid after Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection in Superficial Esophageal Neoplasm.

Esophageal stricture after endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) is a significant complication impairing the quality of life. We investigated the efficacy of prophylactic steroid administration compa...

Selective hypersensitivity to a single nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug.

The aim of the study was to explore the frequency and the clinical and diagnostic characteristics of a single nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug-induced hypersensitivity (SNIUAA) subgroup.

Severe corneal melting after cataract surgery in patients prescribed topical postoperative NSAIDs and dexamethasone/neomycin combination therapy.

Three patients using a postoperative combination of topical ketorolac (Acular) and neomycin/polymyxin B sulfate/dexamethasone (Maxitrol) were diagnosed with atypical keratopathy soon after routine cat...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Nonsteroidal agents which block the action or downregulate the synthesis of ANDROGENS.

Proteins found usually in the cytoplasm or nucleus that specifically bind steroid hormones and trigger changes influencing the behavior of cells. The steroid receptor-steroid hormone complex regulates the transcription of specific genes.

A 21-carbon steroid, derived from CHOLESTEROL and found in steroid hormone-producing tissues. Pregnenolone is the precursor to GONADAL STEROID HORMONES and the adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS.

A 21-carbon steroid that is converted from PREGNENOLONE by STEROID 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYLASE. It is an intermediate in the delta-5 pathway of biosynthesis of GONADAL STEROID HORMONES and the adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS.

Steroid hormones produced by the GONADS. They stimulate reproductive organs, germ cell maturation, and the secondary sex characteristics in the males and the females. The major sex steroid hormones include ESTRADIOL; PROGESTERONE; and TESTOSTERONE.
