Epithelial hyperproliferation and transglutaminase 1 gene expression in Stevens-Johnson syndrome conjunctiva. (1/208)

In Stevens-Johnson syndrome, pathological keratinization of the ordinarily nonkeratinized corneal and conjunctival mucosal epithelia results in severe visual loss. We examined conjunctiva covering cornea in five eyes in the chronic cicatricial phase of Stevens-Johnson syndrome. Normal conjunctiva from five age-matched individuals was studied also. The number of epithelial cells in Stevens-Johnson syndrome conjunctiva that were immunoreactive with a monoclonal antibody, Ki-67, to a nuclear antigen found only in proliferating cells was greater than normal (93.8+/-19.8 cells above 100 basal cells versus 12.8+/-0.5 cells above 100 basal cells; P = 0.009). In addition, although clinical inflammation was mild, massive lymphocytic infiltration was seen in the substantia propria of conjunctiva covering cornea. In situ hybridization documented transglutaminase 1 (keratinocyte transglutaminase) mRNA in suprabasal cells of the abnormally thickened conjunctival epithelium in all Stevens-Johnson syndrome patients. In contrast, no message was detected in normal conjunctival or corneal epithelia. Transglutaminase 1 is expressed during the terminal differentiation of keratinocytes where it helps synthesize cornified cell envelopes. We speculate that in Stevens-Johnson syndrome, epithelial hyperproliferation, and transglutaminase 1 gene expression lead to the pathological keratinization of ocular surface mucosal epithelia.  (+info)

Ocular ochronosis in alkaptonuria patients carrying mutations in the homogentisate 1,2-dioxygenase gene. (2/208)

AIMS: To assess the involvement of the recently identified human homogentisate 1,2-dioxygenase gene (HGO) in alkaptonuria (AKU) in two unrelated patients with ochronosis of the conjunctiva, sclera, and cornea. METHODS: A mutation screen of the entire coding region of the HGO gene was performed using single stranded conformational analysis after polymerase chain reaction with oligonucleotide primers flanking all 14 exons of the HGO gene. Fragments showing aberrant mobility were directly sequenced. RESULTS: Two homozygous missense mutations, L25P and M368V, were identified, each of which leads to the replacement of a highly conserved amino acid in the HGO protein. CONCLUSIONS: The authors describe a novel mutation, L25P, in the German population and bring to 18 the total number of known HGO mutations.  (+info)

Combined effect of Interceed and 5-fluorouracil on delayed adjustable strabismus surgery. (3/208)

AIMS/BACKGROUND: To discover a more reliable method of performing delayed suture adjustment as a basis to investigate whether delayed adjustment actually provides more stable results. In order to prevent the formation of postoperative adhesions and delay the time of adjustment, an animal study was performed to determine the combined effect of physical barriers, Viscoat and Interceed, and a pharmacological agent, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). METHODS: 38 rabbit eyes were divided into three groups. After recession of the superior rectus muscle (SRM), 5-FU was applied beneath and over the SRM in group 5-FU. Group I-f had Interceed and 5-FU and group I-fv, Interceed, 5-FU, and Viscoat. Delayed adjustment was performed once on each SRM at 1, 2, and 3 weeks postoperatively. The possible length and the necessary force to adjust as well as the degree of adhesions were recorded. RESULTS: 5-FU delayed the adjustment for up to 1 week after surgery in three out of four eyes. Combined use of Interceed and 5-FU could delay the adjustment for up to 1 week after surgery in three out of five eyes. Addition of Viscoat could delay the adjustment for up to 1 week after surgery in four out of five eyes. Adjustment was possible on only one of four eyes thereafter. CONCLUSIONS: Combined use of Interceed, 5-FU, and Viscoat could delay the adjustment in rabbits until 1 week postoperatively.  (+info)

Transforming growth factor-beta1, -beta2, and -beta3 in vivo: effects on normal and mitomycin C-modulated conjunctival scarring. (4/208)

PURPOSE: To compare the effects of the three human isoforms of transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta in vivo using a mouse model of conjunctival scarring, both in normal eyes and after treatment with MMC, with a view to delineating the role of this growth factor in glaucoma filtration surgery. METHODS: Application of recombinant human TGF-beta was assessed in a prospective, randomized study of mouse conjunctival scarring, in which subconjunctival TGF-beta1, -beta2, and -beta3 (all 10(-9) M) were compared with control (phosphate-buffered saline [PBS] carrier) and mitomycin C (MMC; 0.4 mg/ml) treatment at 6 hours, and 1, 3, and 7 days after surgery (six eyes/treatment/time point). Effects of TGF-beta2 on eyes previously treated with MMC were also assessed. Histologic studies of enucleated eyes were performed to analyze development of the scarring response, extracellular matrix deposition, and the inflammatory cell profile. RESULTS: All three isoforms of TGF-beta behaved in a similar manner in vivo, being associated with a rapid-onset and exaggerated scarring response compared with control and MMC treatment. TGF-beta-treated eyes showed evidence of an earlier peak in inflammatory cell activity (P < 0.05) and increased collagen type III deposition (P < 0.05). TGF-beta2 treatment significantly stimulated scarring after MMC application (P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: TGF-beta1, -beta2, and -beta3 appear to have similar actions in vivo and stimulate the conjunctival scarring response. Application of TGF-beta2 modified the effects of MMC. All TGF-beta isoforms may be potent modulators of the conjunctival scarring response. These studies indicate that TGF-beta2 may naturally modify the antiscarring effects of antimetabolites such as MMC in glaucoma filtration surgery.  (+info)

Human anti-transforming growth factor-beta2 antibody: a new glaucoma anti-scarring agent. (5/208)

PURPOSE: Currently available anti-scarring regimens for glaucoma filtration surgery have potentially blinding complications and thus the need for alternative and safer agents. The effects of a new antibody to transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta2 on in vitro and in vivo conjunctival scarring and after glaucoma filtration surgery were investigated. METHODS: The activity of a novel recombinant monoclonal neutralizing antibody (mAb) to human TGF-2 (rhAnti-TGF-beta2 mAb) was studied in conjunctival fibroblast-mediated proliferation, migration, and collagen contraction. Its safety in subconjunctival administration was assessed in vivo, and, in a rabbit model of glaucoma filtration surgery, its effects on conjunctival scarring and filtration surgery outcome were investigated. RESULTS: The rhAnti-TGF-beta2 mAb effectively inhibited TGF-beta2-mediated conjunctival scarring activity in vitro, at 50% inhibitory concentrations (IC50) of less than 1 nM. It significantly improved glaucoma filtration surgery outcome in an animal model of aggressive conjunctival scarring compared with control (P = 0.0291) and was clinically safe, nontoxic, and well tolerated after subconjunctival administration. CONCLUSIONS: Subconjunctival rhAnti-TGF-beta2 mAb treatment significantly affects surgical outcome and effectively reduces conjunctival scarring both in vitro and in vivo. It appears safe for subconjunctival administration and when compared with mitomycin-C treatment histologically, much less destructive to local tissue. rhAnti-TGF-beta2 mAb may have potential as a new anti-scarring agent for use in glaucoma filtration surgery.  (+info)

Tear fluid gelatinase B activity correlates with IL-1alpha concentration and fluorescein clearance in ocular rosacea. (6/208)

PURPOSE: To correlate tear fluorescein clearance with interleukin-1alpha (IL-1alpha) concentration and gelatinase B (matrix metalloproteinase [MMP]-9) activity in the tear fluid of patients with ocular rosacea and normal control subjects. METHODS: Gelatinase activity was evaluated by gelatin zymography in tear fluid obtained from 13 patients with ocular rosacea (including 1 patient with recurrent epithelial erosion, 2 with recurrent peripheral corneal infiltrates and vascularization, and 2 patients with epithelial basement membrane dystrophy) and 13 normal subjects with normal aqueous tear production and no irritation symptoms. Tear fluorescein clearance was evaluated by measuring fluorescence in tear fluid collected from the inferior meniscus 15 minutes after instillation of 5 microl of 2% Na-fluorescein with a CytoFluor II fluorometer. Pro-MMP-9 and IL-1alpha concentrations in the tear fluid were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). RESULTS: Compared with normal control subjects, patients with ocular rosacea had a greater delay of tear fluorescein clearance (P < 0.001), a higher tear IL-1alpha concentration (P < 0.001), and a greater pro-gelatinase B (92 kDa) activity (P < 0.001) in their tear fluid. The 84-kDa active form of gelatinase B was observed in 46% of the rosacea tear samples and none of the controls. The zymographic results were confirmed by ELISA that showed a significantly greater concentration of pro-MMP-9 (92 kDa) in the tear fluid of rosacea patients than controls. Delayed tear clearance was correlated with elevated tear IL-1alpha concentration (p=0.67, P < 0.001) and increased tear gelatinase B activity (p=0.84, P < 0.001). Tear IL-1alpha concentration was correlated with tear gelatinase B activity (p=0.58, P < 0.002). CONCLUSIONS: Gelatinase B (MMP-9) activity is greater in patients with ocular rosacea than in normal eyes. The majority of this activity is due to 92-kDa proform of this enzyme. This activity is correlated with delayed tear clearance and tear fluid concentration of interleukin-1alpha, a proinflammatory cytokine that has been reported to stimulate gelatinase B production. Elevated gelatinase B activity in ocular rosacea may be involved in the pathogenesis of the irritation symptoms, recurrent epithelial erosions, vascularization, and epithelial basement membrane dystrophy that develops in the corneas of patients with this condition.  (+info)

Overexpression of MMP-1 and MMP-3 by cultured conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts. (7/208)

PURPOSE: To determine whether conjunctivochalasis, denoting redundant, loose, nonedematous inferior bulbar conjunctiva, is associated with increased expression and activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPS) over their tissue inhibitors (TIMPs). METHODS: Expression of transcripts and proteins of MMPs, TIMPs, and urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) by cultured normal human conjunctival and conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts was determined by Northern hybridization, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and Western blot analysis, respectively. Gelatin and casein zymography and quantitative collagenase activity assay were performed in the serum-free conditioned media. RESULTS: Compared with normal conjunctival fibroblasts from six subjects, conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts from eight patients showed markedly increased transcript expression of MMP-1 (5- to 32-fold) and MMP-3 (4 to 30-fold), whereas that of MMP-2, TIMP-1, TIMP-2, and uPA was similar between the two groups. Protein levels were increased in the serum-free conditioned media of conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts for MMP-1 (3.5- to 7.6-fold) and MMP-3 (2.3- to 13-fold), determined by ELISA and Western blot analysis. There was increased caseinolytic activity of MMP-3 and collagenolytic activity of MMP-1 (2.2-fold) by conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts, whereas no difference was noted between these two types of fibroblasts in the protein and gelatinolytic activity of MMP-2 or expression of TIMP-1 and TIMP-2 proteins, although that of TIMP-1 transcript was slightly higher in some conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts. No expression of MMP-9 was detected. CONCLUSIONS: Overexpression of MMP-1 and MMP-3 mRNA by conjunctivochalasis fibroblasts is correlated with their increased protein levels and proteolytic activities. Collectively, these data help explain how conjunctivochalasis manifests excessive degradation of the conjunctival matrix and Tenon's capsule.  (+info)

Key factors in the subjective and objective assessment of conjunctival erythema. (8/208)

PURPOSE: To establish objectively measurable characteristics of the conjunctival vasculature that correspond with the judgment of erythema by human observers. METHODS: Color images of bulbar conjunctiva from 21 subjects were digitally analyzed to extract the following variables characteristic of the scene: vessel width (W), number of vessels (V), proportion of area occupied by vessels (PA), relative redness both in vessels (RRV) and in the whole image (RRI), red-green difference both in vessels (RGV) and in the whole image (RGI), red-blue difference both in vessels (RBV) and in the whole image (RBI), and red hue value (RHV). These data were compared with subjective judgments by a panel of seven trained observers who independently rated erythema in the same images, using a 0 to 4 scale with decimal interpolation between grades. RESULTS: Correlation analysis indicated significant associations (P<0.05) between the mean response of the human observers and all the objective variables except RHV. Associations with the morphometric variables PA (R2 = 0.93) and V(R2 = 0.90) were markedly stronger than for the best colorimetric variable RBV (R2 = 0.62). CONCLUSIONS: Judgments of erythema made by human observers do not rely primarily on color but can be closely approximated by a univariate, linear model involving only the proportion of the scene occupied by vessels. Under the conditions of this study, grading of erythema by trained observers can be considered to constitute measurement to at least an interval level.  (+info)

All 18 patients treated for conjunctivochalasis had watery eyes. Of the 18 patients, nine (50.0%) had plerolacrima14 (tears filling the eyes but not running down the face), while seven (38.9%) had epiphora (tears running down the face), and two patients (11.1%) had both symptoms. In combination with conjunctivochalasis excision, nine patients (50.0%) underwent lid surgery, five (27.8%) underwent dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery, one (5.6%) underwent both lid surgery and DCR, and four (22.4%) underwent only conjunctivochalasis surgery.. Following DCR surgery, five of six patients had a positive Valsalva bubble test (VBT).15 Of the eight patients who underwent preoperative Schirmers testing, only one suggested the presence of ocular surface drying.. Following surgery, 12 patients (66.7%) were happy with their surgical result. Three patients (16.7%) were substantially improved (70% better). One patient (5.6%) was not significantly improved and, despite being offered further surgery, did not ...

Patients received cyclosporine both systemically (10 mg/kg) and topically (0.05%) as well as high-dose intravenous ...
Conjunctival chalasis, or conjunctivochalasis (Cch), is a commonly observed condition in our everyday patient care experiences. Because it is so common, and because a majority of patients are asymptomatic, optometrists seldom feel the need treat.
Abstract: : Purpose: Pharmacologic approaches using anti-angiogenesis agents may be helpful for the treatment of choroidal neovascularization. The delivery of drugs into the choroid and subretinal space may be safer and more effective using sustained-release implants placed in the subconjunctival space versus surgical implantation directly into the vitreous cavity. We investigated the ocular distribution of a lipophilic fluorescent compound, 5-hexadecanoylaminofluorescein (H-110, MW= 586), from a sustained-release device placed in the subconjunctival space to determine the feasibility of using this approach for drug delivery into the vitreou Methods: We used the lipophilic fluorescent compound to construct sustained-release matrix implants to produce slow rates of drug release for a prolonged period time. Three types of matrices were formed by combining the compound with either polyvinyl alcohol, hydropropyl cellulose (HPC), or silicone. The in vitro release rates of the three different implant ...

subconjunctival hemorrhage and high blood pressure, subconjunctival haemorrhage and high blood pressure, does subconjunctival hemorrhage cause high blood pressure, eye hemorrhage due to high blood pressure
Subconjunctival hemorrhage, also known as subconjunctival haemorrhage and hyposphagma, is bleeding underneath the conjunctiva. The conjunctiva contains many small, fragile blood vessels that are easily ruptured or broken. When this happens, blood leaks into the space between the conjunctiva and sclera. Such a hemorrhage may be caused by a sudden or severe sneeze or cough, or due to high blood pressure or as a side effect of blood thinners such as aspirin or warfarin. It may also be caused by heavy lifting, vomiting, or even rubbing ones eyes too roughly. In other cases, it may result from being choked or from straining due to constipation. Also, it can result as a minor post-operative complication in eye surgeries such as LASIK. Whereas a bruise typically appears black or blue underneath the skin, a subconjunctival hemorrhage initially appears bright-red underneath the transparent conjunctiva. Later, the hemorrhage may spread and become green or yellow, like a bruise. Usually this disappears ...

Purpose : Whether ocular cicatricial pemphigoid (OCP) treated with stepladder immunomodulatory therapy (IMT) can achieve complete remission is not clear. We performed a retrospective, observational clinical study to evaluate the possibility of long-term complete remission of OCP after withdrawal of IMT. Methods : The authors studied the long-term remission off IMT in 34 patients with biopsy proven OCP between January 2005 and October 2015, 25 men and 9 women . The mean age at onset for OCP was 67.0 years. The long-term complete remission off IMT for OCP was defined as patients with OCP who were withdrawn off IMT for at least 1 year with absence of progressive scarring and active ocular inflammation. The average follow up was 5 years. Demographic, treatment regimen, conjunctival inflammation, stage of OCP (Foster), and best corrected visual acuity were recorded. Results : All 34 patients achieved a clinical long-term remission without IMT. Average sustained remission time was 3 years (from 1 year ...

What is that red spot on my eye? Many patients will report visualizing a bright red spot on the white part of their eye when they look in the mirror. Some patients state that family or friends noticed this problem and they were unaware of it. This is typically known as a subconjunctival hemorrhage. We need to think of this condition like a broken blood vessel. The blood gets trapped between the outer conjunctival membrane and the sclera (white part of the eye).

This is a condition where there is a small bleed from a tiny blood vessel beneath the clear membrane that covers the white part of the eye. Since the membrane is clear, and the space beneath it is small, the blood spreads and is highly visible and dramatic in appearance.. Subconjunctival haemorrhage may occur following trauma, eye surgery and eye injections.. In the vast majority of cases, this is spontaneous and harmless. The blood clears over a period of a week or two, gradually turning yellow and disappearing.. ...

Thanks for your Question. Most likely you have inflamed pinguecula and at this stage i dont see the reason behind the blood tests.. FML is a weak corticosteroid and it might be helpful to treat inflamed pinguecula but sometimes you need a stronger corticosteroids to treat the inflammation such as lotemax, tobradex or pred forte eye drops. These eye drops should be used only under the instructions of your eye doctor.. These eye drops wont cure the pinguecula, they will only treat the redness and pain from the inflammtion and should be stopped once the inflammation is gone. The only cure for pinguecula is surgical removal.. One of the causes of pinguecula is sunlights and UV Lights so it would be helpful to wear sunglasses outdoors. Try to use preservative free lubricant eye drops as they can help to reduce inflammation.. ...
Shunting to the subconjunctival space involves the mechanism of diverting aqueous humor to the subconjunctival space from an ab interno stent placed in the angle through a clear corneal incision. The device was created to solve a major problem with tube shunts and trabeculectomy, which is that pressure can reduce, but prevention of hypotony relies on subjective scarring and suture tightness. Shunting to the sub conjunctiva was designed to prevent excessively low pressures and reduce reliance on subjective measures to dictate flow. A bleb is created but it is a more diffuse, low, and less cystic bleb than that with a trabeculectomy. A comfort level with treating blebs post-operatively, such as needling, is required so likely glaucoma specialists and those comfortable with trabeculectomies will find the benefit of this procedure most.. ...
A 13-day-old baby, born of a full term, uncomplicated, normal vaginal delivery at a primary healthcare centre presented with severe bilateral proptosis. At 12 h postpartum a presumed subconjunctival haemorrhage was seen on the temporal aspect of the right eye following which bilateral, rapid onset, painless proptosis developed.. At presentation in the department of ophthalmology CSMMU Lucknow, the child had bilateral, severe, axial, non-pulsatile, almost symmetrical proptosis, along with forniceal prolapse, conjunctival chemosis and exposure keratopathy. The ocular movements were restricted in all directions in both the eyes. There was no fundal view because of the severe exposure keratopathy (figure 1A). The systemic examination was normal and no evidence of bleeding diathesis or battering was found. ...

A small sample of tissue (biopsy) is taken from the eyes and usually also the mouth. These biopsies are evaluated under a fluorescence microscope and tested for antibodies associated with MMP. Whilst biopsies from skin and mouth MMP lesions are less than 10% likely to give false negative results, unfortunately biopsies from the eye can give a false negative result in 30-50% of cases. So a positive result from the eye confirms the diagnosis, but a negative result from the eye does not necessarily mean that the diagnosis is not MMP. In a proportion of patients with negative biopsy results, treatment with immunosuppressive therapy (which suppresses an overactive immune system) in a similar manner to patients with positive biopsy results, may be necessary.. A blood test may also be used to detect the antibodies in the circulation, but they are detectable in less than 30% of ocular MMP patients.. If it is likely that you will require immunosuppressive medication (which suppresses an overactive immune ...

N2 - PURPOSE: To describe the clinical presentation and treatment of ocular rosacea in children, an often unrecognized entity. METHODS: Retrospective chart review of 20 patients (age, 22 months to 17 years) who presented during childhood with corneal pathology, lid margin disease, and skin changes consistent with ocular rosacea. All patients were evaluated by the Cornea/External Disease Division of a tertiary-care facility, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Miami, FL, between 1990 and 2003. RESULTS: Sixty percent of patients improved after treatment with systemic erythromycin or doxycycline and topical low-dose steroid preparations. Ten percent of patients experienced no change in symptoms with treatment, and 30% of patients had incomplete follow-up to determine success of treatment. The patients maintained remission for up to 4 ...

The occurrence of these diseases is associated with various drugs, a large proportion of which is comprised cold medicines (CM). We try to investigate the association between human leucocyte antigen (HLA) class I genes and CM-related SJS/TEN (CM-SJS/TEN) with severe ocular complications (SOC) in the Korean population. Methods This multicentre case-control study enrolled 40 Korean patients with CM-SJS/TEN with SOC and 120 age-matched and ...
Three children with an unusual but clearly defined combination of clinical findings that appear to have been inherited in an autosomal recessive manner are described. All had developed laryngeal abnormalities, chronic skin ulceration, nail dystrophy, and conjunctival disease in infancy. In every case, dental enamel was hypoplastic and both skin and mucosal surfaces demonstrated increased susceptibility to trauma. Progression of disease occurred, to life threatening respiratory obstruction in two cases and to effective blindness and fatal respiratory obstruction in the third child. All of these children came from the Pakistani ethnic group. No medical treatment has halted progression of this disease but laser therapy has been partially successful in alleviating laryngeal manifestations. Ultrastructural and immunohistological examination of unaffected skin was undertaken in each child. No abnormality was found in the child with the mildest clinical disease. Both of the other children showed ...

Miosis is often accompanied by complaints of pain, dim vision, blurred vision, conjunctival injection, nausea, and occasionally vomiting. The pain may be sharp or dull in or around the eyeball, but more often is a dull ache in the frontal part of the head. Dim vision is due in part to the small pupil, and cholinergic mechanisms in the visual pathways also contribute. The complaint of blurred vision is less easily explained, as objective testing usually indicates an improvement in visual acuity because of the pin-hole effect. Conjunctival injection may be mild or severe, and occasionally subconjunctival hemorrhage is present. Nausea (and sometimes vomiting) are part of a generalized complaint of not feeling well. Miosis, pain, dim vision, and nausea can be relieved by topical homatropine or atropine in the eye ...

Ocular rosacea may be more common than widely believed, according to Dr. Guy Webster, professor of dermatology at Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, who spoke at the recent American Academy of Dermatology annual meeting in San Francisco. Dr. Webster, whose practice is located near an eye hospital, said about half of his rosacea patients have eye symptoms. The ocular symptoms are often subtle, however, and many patients do not even know they have a problem. Its only after being treated that they realize rosacea had affected their eyes, he said.
