Retinal detachment occurs more commonly in men than in women, in eyes with degenerative myopia, in aging and in aphakia. It may occur after an uncomplicated cataract extraction, but it is seen more often if vitreous humor has been lost during surgery. (Dorland, 27th ed; Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p310-12).Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Non-invasive method of demonstrating internal anatomy based on the principle that atomic nuclei in a strong magnetic field absorb pulses of radiofrequency energy and emit them as radiowaves which can be reconstructed into computerized images. The concept includes proton spin tomographic techniques.Eye ProteinsSuture Techniques: Techniques for securing together the edges of a wound, with loops of thread or similar materials (SUTURES).Obstetric Labor Complications: Medical problems associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR, such as BREECH PRESENTATION; PREMATURE OBSTETRIC LABOR; HEMORRHAGE; or others. These complications can affect the well-being of the mother, the FETUS, or both.Sprains and Strains: A collective term for muscle and ligament injuries without dislocation or fracture. A sprain is a joint injury in which some of the fibers of a supporting ligament are ruptured but the continuity of the ligament remains intact. A strain is an overstretching or overexertion of some part of the musculature.Perineum: The body region lying between the genital area and the ANUS on the surface of the trunk, and to the shallow compartment lying deep to this area that is inferior to the PELVIC DIAPHRAGM. The surface area is between the VULVA and the anus in the female, and between the SCROTUM and the anus in the male.Orthopedic Procedures: Procedures used to treat and correct deformities, diseases, and injuries to the MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM, its articulations, and associated structures.Cartilage Diseases: Pathological processes involving the chondral tissue (CARTILAGE).Meibomian Glands: The sebaceous glands situated on the inner surface of the eyelids between the tarsal plates and CONJUNCTIVA.Cornea: The transparent anterior portion of the fibrous coat of the eye consisting of five layers: stratified squamous CORNEAL EPITHELIUM; BOWMAN MEMBRANE; CORNEAL STROMA; DESCEMET MEMBRANE; and mesenchymal CORNEAL ENDOTHELIUM. It serves as the first refracting medium of the eye. It is structurally continuous with the SCLERA, avascular, receiving its nourishment by permeation through spaces between the lamellae, and is innervated by the ophthalmic division of the TRIGEMINAL NERVE via the ciliary nerves and those of the surrounding conjunctiva which together form plexuses. (Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)Tendons: Fibrous bands or cords of CONNECTIVE TISSUE at the ends of SKELETAL MUSCLE FIBERS that serve to attach the MUSCLES to bones and other structures.Epithelium, Corneal: Stratified squamous epithelium that covers the outer surface of the CORNEA. It is smooth and contains many free nerve endings.Athletic Injuries: Injuries incurred during participation in competitive or non-competitive sports.Contact Lenses: Lenses designed to be worn on the front surface of the eyeball. (UMDNS, 1999)Baseball: A competitive nine-member team sport including softball.Joint DiseasesJoint Instability: Lack of stability of a joint or joint prosthesis.

It is widely distributed in secretory fluids and is found in the neutrophilic granules of LEUKOCYTES. The N-terminal part of lactoferrin possesses a serine protease which functions to inactivate the TYPE III SECRETION SYSTEM used by bacteria to export virulence proteins for host cell invasion.Injury Severity Score: An anatomic severity scale based on the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS) and developed specifically to score multiple traumatic injuries. It has been used as a predictor of mortality.Tenotomy: Surgical division of a tendon for relief of a deformity that is caused by congenital or acquired shortening of a muscle (Stedman, 27th ed). Tenotomy is performed in order to lengthen a muscle that has developed improperly, or become shortened and is resistant to stretching.Xerophthalmia: Dryness of the eye surfaces caused by deficiency of tears or conjunctival secretions.

Secretory component is derived by proteolytic cleavage of the receptor during transcytosis. When immunoglobulins IgA and IgM are bound to the receptor, during their transcytosis secretory component becomes covalently attached to them generating SECRETORY IMMUNOGLOBULIN A or secretory IMMUNOGLOBULIN M.Humeral Head: The portion of the upper rounded extremity fitting into the glenoid cavity of the SCAPULA. (from Stedman, 27th ed)Dacryocystitis: Inflammation of the lacrimal sac.

- The PicoGreen dye assay measures tear fluid eDNA abundance after a 2-minute incubation time. (sigmaaldrich.com)
- The mean (SE) eDNA abundance in healthy control subjects' tear fluid was 1.4 (0.2) μg/mL. (sigmaaldrich.com)
- The mean (SE) eDNA abundance in tear fluid of patients with nonautoimmune DED, autoimmune DED, and graft versus host disease was significantly higher: the values were 2.9 (0.6), 5.2 (1.2), and 9.1 (2.3) μg/mL, respectively (P (sigmaaldrich.com)
- In most of these patients, the PicoGreen dye kinetic assay of tear fluid showed an increase in fluorescence signal due to the presence of viable cells in tear fluid. (sigmaaldrich.com)
- Tear fluid eDNA had the best correlation with corneal Rose Bengal staining (r = 0.55). (sigmaaldrich.com)
- Excessive eDNA is present in tear fluid of patients with dry eyes. (sigmaaldrich.com)
- A novel therapeutic approach for managing DED may be to measure eDNA abundance in tear fluid with the PicoGreen dye assay and reduce excessive amounts with DNase I eyedrops. (sigmaaldrich.com)
- BACKGROUND/AIM Components of the tear fluid contribute to the biochemical defence system of the eye. (bmj.com)
- METHODS Immunoblot analysis using either a rabbit polyclonal or a mouse monoclonal antibody against galectin-3 was employed to detect galectin-3 in tear fluid. (bmj.com)
- Inflammatory leucocytes and goblet cells found in galectin-3 containing tear fluid also expressed galectin-3. (bmj.com)
- CONCLUSIONS This study revealed expression of galectin-3 in tear fluid obtained from patients with eye diseases. (bmj.com)
- If the retinal tear remains unrecognized and untreated, then fluid can rapidly accumulate through a defect (or multiple retinal defects). (center4retina.org)
- In a short period of time, this bubble can expand and close the retinal tear allowing the fluid under the retina to absorb. (center4retina.org)
- With a tear, fluid from inside the eye can then migrate behind the retina and detach it from the back wall of the eye. (bascompalmer.org)
Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease6
- Meanwhile, researchers and divers in Florida, where the disease was first spotted in 2014, are also removing coral samples and shipping them to places as far-flung as Kansas and Oklahoma, in a last-ditch effort to save the 20 species or more thought to be susceptible to what has been dubbed Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease.

- Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease tmsnrt.rs/2nfybsM has been identified in seven other Caribbean localities, according to the Florida Sea Grant, a university-based program funded by the federal government. (reuters.com)
- Unlike the more well-known coral bleaching phenomenon, coral typically cannot recover from Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease. (reuters.com)
- Marilyn Brandt, a research associate professor at the University of the Virgin Islands' Center for Marine and Environmental Studies, applies an antibiotic paste to corals being killed by Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease (SCTLD) near the University of the Virgin Islands campus in St Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands, May 14, 2019.

- Does exercise prevent cardiovascular disease? (sweatandtearstraining.com)
- In today's topic, I want to cover a subject that people have been raising question to for quite some time, does exercise prevent cardiovascular disease? (sweatandtearstraining.com)
- and I would like to get down to the bottom line on this subject because cardiovascular disease has claimed the lives of far too many people, I can't change what everyone is doing and I can't change statistics, but if I can just help a few people in making some life changing decisions, I will surely be happy to know that I have done something in combating this known killer.
