Phenotype of autosomal recessive congenital microphthalmia mapping to chromosome 14q32. (1/277)

BACKGROUND: Congenital microphthalmia (OMIM: 309700) may occur in isolation or in association with a variety of systemic malformations. Isolated microphthalmia may be inherited as an autosomal dominant, an autosomal recessive, or an X linked trait. METHODS: Based on a whole genome linkage analysis, in a six generation consanguineous family with autosomal recessive inheritance, the first locus for isolated microphthalmia was mapped to chromosome 14q32. Eight members of this family underwent clinical examination to determine the nature of the microphthalmia phenotype associated with this locus. RESULTS: All affected individuals in this family suffered from bilateral microphthalmia in association with anterior segment abnormalities, and the best visual acuity achieved was "perception of light". Corneal changes included partial or complete congenital sclerocornea, and the later development of corneal vascularisation and anterior staphyloma. Intraocular pressure, as measured by Schiotz tonometry, was greatly elevated in many cases. CONCLUSIONS: This combination of ocular defects suggests an embryological disorder involving tissues derived from both the neuroectoderm and neural crest. Other families with defects in the microphthalmia gene located on 14q32 may have a similar ocular phenotype aiding their identification.  (+info)

A first British case of fish-eye disease presenting at age 75 years: a double heterozygote for defined and new mutations affecting LCAT structure and expression. (2/277)

Fish-eye disease is a familial syndrome with corneal opacification, major high density lipoprotein (HDL) deficiency in plasma, significant cholesterol esterification in plasma on non-HDL lipoproteins, generally without premature coronary disease. This first British male case from unrelated British parents had infarcts when aged 49 and 73 years but was asymptomatic at age 81 years, with plasma cholesterol 4.3-7.1 mmol/litre, triglycerides 1.8-2.2 mmol/litre, HDL cholesterol < 0.1 mmol/litre, apolipoprotein A-I < 0.16 g/litre, lipoprotein(a) 0.61 g/litre. Cholesterol esterification was impaired using HDL-3 and A-I proteoliposomes but not using VLDL/IDL/LDL. The findings are those of LCAT deficiency with the classic fish-eye disease defect. Most of the 22 reported cases were homozygous or heterozygous for a Thr-Ile mutation at codon 123 of the lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) gene. This patient was a double heterozygote for this mutation and a second new incompletely defined mutation affecting LCAT expression as defined by reduced mass and activity in plasma.  (+info)

Functional human corneal equivalents constructed from cell lines. (3/277)

Human corneal equivalents comprising the three main layers of the cornea (epithelium, stroma, and endothelium) were constructed. Each cellular layer was fabricated from immortalized human corneal cells that were screened for use on the basis of morphological, biochemical, and electrophysiological similarity to their natural counterparts. The resulting corneal equivalents mimicked human corneas in key physical and physiological functions, including morphology, biochemical marker expression, transparency, ion and fluid transport, and gene expression. Morphological and functional equivalents to human corneas that can be produced in vitro have immediate applications in toxicity and drug efficacy testing, and form the basis for future development of implantable tissues.  (+info)

Persistent corneal haze after excimer laser photokeratectomy in plasminogen-deficient mice. (4/277)

PURPOSE: Excimer laser photorefractive keratectomy creates a nonvascular wound of the cornea. Fibrin deposition and resolution after excimer laser photokeratectomy were investigated in relation to corneal repair and restoration of clarity in mice with a genetic deficiency of plasminogen. METHODS: A Summit Apex Laser (Summit, Waltham, MA) was used to perform 2-mm, 175-pulse, transepithelial photoablations that resulted in deep stromal keratectomies. Photokeratectomy was performed on the corneas of plasminogen-deficient (Plg-/-) mice and littermate control animals. Eyes were examined for re-epithelialization and clarity throughout the 21-day observational period. Histologic sections were taken during the observational period and fibrin(ogen) was detected immunohistochemically. RESULTS: Re-epithelialization was rapid and complete within 3 days in both control and Plg-/- animals. Exuberant corneal fibrin(ogen) deposition was noted in Plg-/- mice and sparse fibrin(ogen) deposition in control mice on days 1 and 3 after injury. Fibrin(ogen) deposits resolved in control mice but persisted in Plg-/- mice (74% of eyes at 21 days; P < 0.004). Corneal opacification, scarring, and the presence of anterior chamber fibrin(ogen) occurred in plasminogen-deficient mice but not in control mice. CONCLUSIONS: Fibrin(ogen) deposition occurs during corneal wound repair after photokeratectomy. Impaired fibrinolysis in Plg-/- mice caused persistent stromal fibrin deposits that correlated with the development of corneal opacity.  (+info)

Relationship between structure and biochemical phenotype of lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) mutants causing fish-eye disease. (5/277)

In order to test the hypothesis that fish-eye disease (FED) is due to a deficient activation of lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) by its co-factor apolipoprotein (apo) A-I, we overexpressed the natural mutants T123I, N131D, N391S, and other engineered mutants in Cos-1 cells. Esterase activity was measured on a monomeric phospholipid enelogue, phospholipase A(2) activity was measured on reconstituted high density lipoprotein (HDL), and acyltransferase activity was measured both on rHDL and on low density lipoprotein (LDL). The natural FED mutants have decreased phospholipase A(2) activity on rHDL, which accounts for the decreased acyltransferase activity previously reported. All mutants engineered at positions 131 and 391 had decreased esterase activity on a monomeric substrate and decreased acyltransferase activity on LDL. In contrast, mutations at position 123 preserved these activities and specifically decreased phospholipase A(2) and acyltransferase activites on rHDL. Mutations of hydrophilic residues in amphipathic helices alpha 3;-4 and alpha His to an alanine did not affect the mutants' activity on rHDL. Based upon the 3D model built for human LCAT, we designed a new mutant F382A, which had a biochemical phenotype similar to the natural T123I FED mutant. These data suggest that residues T123 and F382, located N-terminal of helices alpha 3-4 and alpha His, contribute specifically to the interaction of LCAT with HDL and possibly with its co-factor apoA-I. Residues N131 and N391 seem critical for the optimal orientation of the two amphipathic helices necessary for the recognition of a lipoprotein substrate by the enzyme.  (+info)

Ocular changes in beagle dogs following oral administration of CGS 24565, a potential hypolipidemic agent. (6/277)

(11R)-N,15-dideoxo-1-deoxy-1,15-epoxy-11-hydroxy-4-0methy l-8-0-(2, 2-dimethyl-1-oxopropyl)-3-[4- inverted question mark(2,4, 6-trimethylphenyl)methyl inverted question mark-1-piperazinyl]rifamycin has been evaluated as a potential hypolipidemic agent. As part of a safety evaluation program, a 3-month oral toxicity study was performed in which CGS 24565 was administered to beagle dogs via gelatin capsules at 10, 50, or 300 mg/kg/day. Ophthalmoscopic examinations (using focal illumination and indirect opthalmoscopy) on day 83 (week 12) revealed bilateral adnexal and corneal changes affecting 5 dogs (3 males, 2 females, 300 mg/kg/day). Ophthalmoscopically, dogs from the 300 mg/kg dose level exhibited the adnexal changes characterized as ptosis, conjunctivitis, episcleritis, and relaxed membrane nictitans, while the corneal changes were characterized as posterior stromal edema (cloudy, diffuse opacity usually accompanied by deep neovascularization; the diffuse edema masked the complete evaluation of other ocular structures) and stromal infiltrates in the area of Decement's membrane (appeared to be multifocal, polymorphic changes/alterations in Decement's membrane, or endothelial swelling). No changes from normal were seen clinically in the eyes of other dogs on this experiment. In those dogs affected by the ocular changes caused by CGS 24565, a visual deficit in acuity was suspected. The corneal changes, as manifested, were suggestive of permanent, irreversible corneal damage. Subsequent ophthalmoscopic examinations performed at established intervals during weeks 15 through 26, revealed abatement of the adnexal changes, while the corneal changes, as described above, remained generally unchanged, confirming irreversibility of the corneal changes within the recovery period of 13 weeks. Light microscopy confirmed irreversible corneal neovascularization, vacuolar degeneration of the keratocytes at 300 mg/kg, and polymorphic infiltrates in the region of Decement's membrane. The results demonstrate that the cornea was the target tissue of toxicity for CGS 24565, and indicated that the findings represent a significant toxic effect. The correlation of histopathological findings support the hypothesis of the diagnosis of interstitial stromal degeneration/atrophy. The potential for a similar result to the cornea of humans does exist. Due to these changes and other toxic effects associated with this class of compound, further development was terminated.  (+info)

A simple method to evaluate the massive dose vitamin A prophylaxis program in preschool children. (7/277)

A massive dose vitamin A prophylaxis program is currently in operation in several States of India. Evaluation of this program on a large scale has so far been difficult due to lack of baseline data on the prevalence of vitamin A deficiency in children. In this study, a simple evaluation method which makes use of the linear relationship that exists between age on one hand and prevalence of ocular signs of vitamin A deficiency (Bitot's spots) on the other is described. Regression coefficients between age and prevalence of vitamin A deficiency of areas not covered by the program (control areas) were found to be significantly different both from zero and from regression coefficients of regularly covered areas (experimental areas). Also, all regression lines of control areas were found to be above the regression zone of experimental areas. These differences between the experimental and control areas which were significant, indicate the impact of the program in areas where the program is in operation. The regression coefficient calculated for one area where the program was discontinued after some time was found to be significantly different from zero, also it was different from the regression zone of the experimental areas. However, the regression coefficient of the discontinued area was found to be significantly different from the experimental areas only at 10% level, indicating a lesser degree of efficiency of the program in this area as compared to regularly fed areas. It is, therefore, suggested that evaluation of the massive dose prophylaxis program be done against the null hypothesis beta = 0.0065--the regression coefficient achievable under field conditions.  (+info)

Excimer laser phototherapeutic keratectomy: indications, results and its role in the Indian scenario. (8/277)

PURPOSE: To report indications, technique, and results of excimer phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK), and describe possible reasons for the small numbers of such procedures performed in a referral institute in India. METHODS: Retrospective review of case records of 10 patients (11 eyes) who underwent excimer PTK at our institute between February 1994 and September 1997. RESULTS: Corneal scars were the most common indication for treatment. Best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) improved in 6 eyes (mean: 2 lines of Snellen acuity). All eyes had BCVA > or = 6/12 after treatment. None of the patients experienced loss of BCVA after treatment. Unaided visual acuity improved in 3 eyes and decreased in 2 eyes. Change in spherical equivalent refraction > or = 1 diopter occurred in 77.8% of eyes after treatment. Treating central corneal scars resulted in a significant hyperopic shift in refraction. CONCLUSIONS: Excimer PTK is a safe and effective procedure for the treatment of superficial corneal opacities. Post-treatment ametropia may require further correction with optical aids. Inappropriate referrals, deep corneal scars, and cost of the procedure could have contributed to the small numbers of PTK performed at our institute. Improved understanding of procedural strengths and limitations could lead to increased use of this procedure, with satisfying results in selected patients.  (+info)

Etiology: Band keratopathy derives its name from the distinctive appearance of calcium deposition in a band across the central cornea. Band keratopathy can occur from a variety of causes, both systemic and local. Bank keratopathy is associated with chronic corneal edema (perhaps the most common treatable cause accounting for over 1/4 of cases in one series), phthisis bulbi, chronic iridocyclitis, severe glaucoma, hyperparathyroidism, vitamin D excess, sarcoidosis or renal disease. The latter 4 are related to abnormal calcium metabolism. Severe dry eye may also precede band keratopathy. Herpes keratitis may predispose to band keratopathy. The use of phosphate salts in steroid preparations may precipitate calcium in patients with epithelial defects ...

Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. Cremers on alternative treatments for corneal opacity: First, it is best to try to identify and treat the underlying disease process, so that the inflammatory impetus to form new vessels is reversed or minimized. If there is a quiet eye, there are a couple possible treatment options. First, laser ablation of the vessels has had some success, especially using a yellow dye laser. Second, a medicine that makes new blood vessels disappear can be injected.

In this series of patients with corneal opacification secondary to trauma and coexisting vitreoretinal pathologies, combined PPV and PK surgery performed with Landers wide-angle keratoprosthesis resulted in retinal attachment in 6 cases (75%), normotony in 5 cases (62.5%), and graft transparency in 5 cases (62.5%). VA did not decrease in any of the cases, increased in 5 cases (62.5%), and was unchanged in 3 cases. In total, 4 cases (50%) were considered completely successful.. Various alternatives have been used in attempts to perform posterior segment surgeries in eyes with corneal opacities. The main alternatives are performing PK followed by PPV in a separate session, performing simultaneous open sky vitrectomy with corneal excision, or performing PPV with endoscopic methods or temporary keratoprostheses.6. When PK and PPV surgeries are performed in separate sessions, PPV may be delayed due to risks such as persistent corneal edema or graft rejection. Moreover, it has been reported that fluid ...

Unfortunately, stromal haze is more commonly associated with higher ablation depths. The surgeon applies mitomycin C 0.02% for 12 seconds after the laser ablation to effectively mitigate corneal haze for eyes at greatest risk, including those with ablations greater or equal to 6.00 D or greater than 75 μm.. Other measures to prevent haze are somewhat anecdotal, but an extended course of oral vitamin C, oral steroids and a four-month tapering of steroids postoperatively may also prevent haze formation. More importantly, given the relationship between UV exposure and corneal haze, even one to two years after surgery, ophthalmologists should emphasize protection from and limited exposure to UV radiation. Other important considerations unique to advanced surface ablation can be drawbacks in the immediate postoperative period. In my experience, the recovery of the final visual acuity for higher myopic ablations is more protracted, and can take upwards of two to three months to achieve ...
KLEIP co-localizes transiently with E-cadherin in cultured MDCK cells, suggesting that it regulates formation of cell-cell contacts. 18 Therefore, we hypothesized that E-cadherin localization could be altered in the epithelium of KLEIP-deficient corneas, and expression of E-cadherin in KLEIP+/+ and KLEIP−/− mice was examined. In KLEIP+/+ corneas, both epithelial cell layers, namely the squamous cell layer and the basal cell layer, were positive for E-cadherin, and both layers displayed the physiologic architecture (Fig. 5A, left). In contrast, squamous and basal cell layers in KLEIP−/− mice largely were disorganized and characterized by acellular areas in the squamous cell layer, suggesting loosened cell-cell contacts and an incomplete regeneration of the corneal epithelium in KLEIP−/− corneas (Fig. 5A, right). Furthermore, corneas of KLEIP−/− mice displayed several apoptotic cells, which were absent in KLEIP+/+ corneas (Fig. 5B). This observation suggested that high ...

Like I announced here, my Holga 120GN was upgraded to make some 60 pictures with a nonperforated 35mm roll (brand General Photo). I made a mask that used the entire width of the roll (35mm) and about 24mm of the lenght. Because the normal lens act as a weak tele, 60mm focal lenght instead of the normal 50mm for a 35mm full frame, I thought about using a wide angle lens to turn the modified Holga into an almost normal camera. Yes, it worked, and I also used a fish eye lens but it distorts too much the pictures. The wide angle lens are 0.5 x, so, instead of 60mm we have a 30mm focal lenght which allows further reduction of the picture. I will use this possibility to make a smaller mask and let margins in the film. The new size will be then 30x20 mm with 2,5mm margin on each side. This is exactly in the same proportion 3:2 of the normal 35mm full frame but the 30mm focal lenght is still a weak wide angle lens, maybe 0.6 or 0.7 ...

Because the normal lens act as a weak tele, 60mm focal lenght instead of the normal 50mm for a 35mm full frame, I thought about using a wide angle lens to turn the modified Holga into an almost normal camera. Yes, it worked, and I also used a fish eye lens but it distorts too much the pictures. The wide angle lens are 0.5 x, so, instead of 60mm we have a 30mm focal lenght which allows further reduction of the picture. I will use this possibility to make a smaller mask and let margins in the film. The new size will be then 30x20 mm with 2,5mm margin on each side. This is exactly in the same proportion 3:2 of the normal 35mm full frame but the 30mm focal lenght is still a weak wide angle lens, maybe 0.6 or 0.7 ...

The occurrence of an anorectal malformation with Holt-Oram syndrome, microcephaly, and bilateral corneal opacity is rare and to the best of our knowledge has not previously been reported in the literature. Hence, there is a need to document our experience in this case and learn as much as possible from it. We present the case of a Nigerian female neonate with a postnatal diagnosis of syndromic anorectal malformation associated with Holt-Oram syndrome, microcephaly, and bilateral corneal opacity. The infant had successful staged correction of her anorectal malformation but developed a metastatic Wilms tumor and died before other corrective procedures could be instituted. An anorectal malformation is here reported to occur with Holt-Oram syndrome, an association that has not been reported previously. To enhance the prognosis and quality of life of children with syndromic anorectal malformation, prenatal ultrasound monitoring of high-risk pregnancies and expertise in prenatal detection of congenital
Congenital stromal corneal dystrophy (CSCD), also called Witschel dystrophy, is an extremely rare, autosomal dominant form of corneal dystrophy. Only 4 families have been reported to have the disease by 2009. The main features of the disease are numerous opaque flaky or feathery areas of clouding in the stroma that multiply with age and eventually preclude visibility of the endothelium. Strabismus or primary open angle glaucoma was noted in some of the patients. Thickness of the cornea stays the same, Descemets membrane and endothelium are relatively unaffected, but the fibrills of collagen that constitute stromal lamellae are reduced in diameter and lamellae themselves are packed significantly more tightly. CSCD is associated with a mutation in the gene DCN that encodes the protein decorin, located at chromosome 12q22. The disorder is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, which indicates that the defective gene responsible for a disorder is located on an autosome (chromosome 12 is an ...
Results Overall, 12 113 of 12 899 people (93.9% response rate) were examined during the household visits. Prevalence of corneal disease was 3.7% (95% CI 3.4% to 4.1%) and that of corneal blindness was 0.12% (95% CI 0.05% to 0.17%). Multivariable analysis demonstrated that corneal disease was significantly higher in the elderly (p,0.0001) and illiterates (p,0.0001). Common causes of corneal opacity in the study population were pterygium (34.5%), ocular trauma (22.3%) and infectious keratitis (14.9%). Corneal diseases contributing to blindness were post-surgical bullous keratopathy (46.2%) and corneal degenerations (23.1%).. ...

Calcific band keratopathy (CBK) is a degenerative condition resulting in the deposition of calcium salts in the superficial layers of the cornea and causing significant visual disturbance and pain of the affected eye. The amount of CBK precipitates recovered from the affected eye is very small rendering a great challenge in development of an effective and non-invasive treatment for this condition. This provides an impetus to study the possible chemical factors that may contribute to the development of CBK in an effort to develop a more efficient and un-intrusive treatment for this condition. To this end, we have developed an in-vitro model system resembling band keratopathys chemical composition and morphology thus providing insight to the mechanism of formation and allowing for mass production of the material furthering the advances of therapeutic targeting CBK. Our study is the fIrst to demonstrate that low molecular silicon can assist in the formation of CBK. Given the predominance of ...
In those patients requiring vitreoretinal surgery and presenting opacity or corneal irregularity that prevents proper display, the use of a temporary keratoprostheses (QPT) is currently the best option. The QPT, implemented after trepanation of the opaque cornea, vitreoretinal surgery allows a correct visualization of intraocular structures. Once the vitreo-retinal surgery has been completed, the keratoprosthesis is removed and placed suture and corneal graft. In this way you can perform both procedures in a single surgical time, optimizing maneuvers in the vitreous space. The indication of this complex procedure is any vitreoretinal pathology whose surgery can not be performed by corneal opacity which is not medically treatable and prevents sufficient preoperative visualization. The vast majority of candidates for this surgery are from ocular trauma but I will present these cases that had severe endophthalmitis with severe infection and corneal opacity not permitting vitreoretinal surgery ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Tgfβ mediated corneal myofibroblast transformation is dependent on tyrosine phosphorylation. AU - Jester, J. V.. AU - Huang, J.. AU - Kao, W. W.. AU - Petroll, Walter M. AU - Cavanagh, Harrison D. PY - 1997/12/1. Y1 - 1997/12/1. N2 - Recent studies of the inhibitory effects of ROD peptides on TGFβ induced keratocyte transformation and a-smooth muscle-specific actin (a-SM) expression suggest the presence of an outside-in signal transduction mechanism involving interactions between fibronectin (FN) and the FN receptors, a5βl integrin. The purpose of this study was to identify the role of integnn-dependent tyrosine phosphorylation in regulating a-SM gene expression and ultimately myofibroblast development. Methods: Since cell culture in serum containing media mimics myofibroblast transformation, all experiments were carried out on freshly isolated rabbit keratocytes plated in defined, serum-free media. Cells were exposed to TGFR (1 ng/ml), GRGDdSP (50 uM), GRADSP (100 uM) or ...
Purpose : Numerous studies have demonstrated the essential roles of the peripheral nervous system as the neuroendocrine system, mediating the secretion of neuropeptides and/or neurotransmitters to suppress the excessive inflammatory reactions in autoimmune diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease. We recently reported that loss of corneal nerve leads to corneal inflammation and the loss of neurogenic immune privilege. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) on innate immunity in denervated cornea. Methods : Trigeminal axotomy (TA) or sham procedure were performed in 6-8 week-old male BALB/c mice. Corneal opacity grading, immunohistochemistry (IHC) and corneal cytokine levels were determined 24 hours after 20μg of LPS instillation onto the cornea with or without TA and topical VIP treatment (more than N=3). Corneal opacity grading was as follows; grade 0: clear, grade 1: mild opacity, grade 2: moderate opacity, grade 3: severely dense ...

Damage to the cornea results in fibrotic scarring, leading to the loss of tissue transparency and reduced visual acuity. In fact, corneal opacity is the worlds third leading cause of blindness. Other than transplantation of the affected tissue, there is no treatment to prevent corneal scarring. For these reasons, there is a need to develop anti-fibrotic therapies to promote corneal regeneration after injury. Embryonic tissue has a remarkable regenerative capacity. However, prior to this study, it was not known if the embryonic cornea possessed the ability to regenerate. I hypothesized wounded embryonic corneas wound exhibit non-fibrotic regeneration, and could be used to elucidate novel mechanisms of cornea regeneration. I developed a multistep microdissection method that allows access to the embryonic cornea and several other tissues undergoing organogenesis. Utilizing this methodology, I found embryonic corneal wounds induce a transient population of scar-forming myofibroblast, and ultimately ...
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Corneal opacity is a leading cause of blindness. Cornea transplantation is at high risk of rejection when there is pre-existing vascularization of the cornea and in pediatric patients. Cornea transplant shortage remains a worldwide problem with millions on waitlists. Our laboratory is developing multiple strategies for treatment of corneal blindness. We are testing advanced materials and designs for keratoprostheses with the goal of reducing complications and easing surgical implantation. We are also developing intraocular electronic display prostheses for bypassing cornea opacity, a novel strategy that could allow for high quality vision without corneal clarity. ...

This is the story of two young men, brothers, residing in Dhakrani village of Block Vikasnagar in Dehradun district of Uttarakhand state in India. Mohammad Mustaqeem, 21 years and Abdurr Rehman, 18 years had been suffering with congenital corneal opacity since their births. Due to this condition, their corneas clouded progressively, with age, leading to decreasing vision. Apart from the ensuing visual impairment, they experienced other irritants in leading normal lifestyles; excessive tearing, constant sensation of something in the eye, and most disturbingly, excessive sensitivity to light, so much so that they could not comfortably put on their slippers, during the day, which were left in their homes courtyard. During evenings and night, their studies were hampered due to increasing sensitivity to light bulbs and tube lights. All in all, their lives were adversely affected, hampering their studies, social interaction and most of all their personal growth. However, despite their inherent ...
Thirty-one eyes (18 patients) were included. Subjective improvement was reported in 48.4% at T1. Differences were statistically significant between mean baseline BCVA (0.61; 95% CI=0.41-0.80), compared to T1 (0.51; 95% CI=0.29-0.72; p=0.04), T2 (0.49; 95%CI=0.28-0.70; p=0.004), and T3 (0.48; 95% CI=0.27-0.69; p=0.01). Mean epithelial defect at P0 was 52%±48% and 10%±7% at T1 (p=0.13). KNV was observed in 25.8% at P0 and T1, T2:19.3% and T3:6.4% (p=1.0). Corneal opacity at P0 was 29.03%, T1:18.52%, T2:14.29%, and T3:38.46% (p=0.33). Average SI at P0 was 1.08±0.75, T1:0.85±0.83, T2:0.98±0.84, and T3:0.61±0.54, without significant differences between P0-T1 (p=0.27 ...

Pharmaceutical companies can use in vitro testing for assessing worker safety. Pharmaceutical intermediates should be evaluated to determine the primary hazards associated with them so that those involved in the manufacturing process can take necessary precautions to avoid hazardous exposures.. Pharmaceutical compounds can vary widely in their physical forms, such as powders, liquids, and creams. Many in vitro assays such as those using 3-dimensional tissue constructs, and the Bovine Corneal Opacity and Permeability (BCOP) Assay, are suitable for testing different test article forms, and can provide predictions on the hazards associated with them. Testing can be structured by taking a tiered-testing approach depending on the expected irritation levels of the products, and using the protocol best suited for the test material. This could help to eliminate unnecessary testing. Protocols that align with OECD test guidelines for classification according to GHS hazards can be used, or companies may ...
In order to fully understand stellar structure, it is necessary to know the opacity, as it influences the behavior of radiative transfer within the stellar interior. Opacity plays an important role in the onset of convection as well as driving stellar winds in cool stars. Opacity is the interaction of light with the surrounding medium, with major contributors being atoms, molecules and grains. Tables of average opacity values are highly dependent on the composition and if any changes are made, a whole new set of tables must be recalculated. Using molecular line lists, a computer program was written to calculate the bound-bound transition cross-section absorption coefficients for eight different molecular species, including C2, CH, CN , CO, C2H2, H2O, HCN , and T iO. Molecular line lists, like H2O, consist of hundreds of millions of lines of data that slow down the process of calculation. Since the frequency specific opacity is dependent on temperature, the molecular absorption coefficients must ...

The saturation of visual scene decreases by haze due to environments (e.g. fog) and optical properties of eyes (e.g. aging of crystalline lens). However, we would be able to maintain stable colorfulness perception of a scene if we have a mechanism to compensate deceased saturation by haze. We previously examined the influence of haze on the colorfulness perception of natural images using foggy filters, and showed that it was almost the same with and without the foggy filters even immediately after wearing the filters, suggesting a strong instantaneous colorfulness compensation mechanism (ICVS2015). Here, we further examine if the strength of colorfulness compensation is influenced by the pattern of stimuli. We tested conditions viewing natural images through actual foggy filters as well as simulated images, using a colorfulness matching method. Observers memorized the colorfulness of a stimulus image without foggy filters. Then they adjusted the colorfulness of a natural image through foggy ...
