Purpose: : Epithelial cells from several mucosal sites (including conjunctiva) have been shown to actively participate during inflammatory episodes by producing and secreting cytokines and chemokines. The aim of this study was to determine the pattern of cytokines/chemokine secretion from conjunctival epithelial cells under the effect of Th1 and Th2-type cytokines to further clarify the role of conjunctival epithelium in ocular surface inflammation. Methods: : IOBA-NHC (normal human conjunctival) epithelial cells were exposed to Th1- (IFN-γ and TNF-α) or Th2- (IL-4 and IL-13) derived cytokines for 48 h. Time dependency (30 min, 2 h and 24 h) of TNF-α induced cytokine/chemokine secretion was additionally studied. Cytokine/chemokine production was determined in supernatants by a 22-multiplex bead-based assay in a Luminex 100-IS. Additionally, eotaxin-2 and -3 production was analyzed with by ELISA. Results: : After 48 h of Th1 stimulation, cells produced high levels of IL-1α, IL-6, IL8, RANTES ...
Genetic analysis of pancreatic development has provided new insights into the mechanisms underlying the formation of exocrine pancreatic neoplasia. Zebrafish sweetbread (swd) mutants develop hypoplastic acini and dysmorphic ducts in the exocrine pancreas, with impeded progression of cell division cycle and of epithelial growth. Positional cloning and allelic complementation have revealed that the swd mutations affect the transient receptor potential melastatin-subfamily member 7 (trpm7) gene, which encodes a divalent cation-permeable channel with kinase activity. Supplementary Mg2+ partially rescued the exocrine pancreatic defects of the trpm7 mutants by improving cell-cycle progression and growth and repressing the suppressor of cytokine signaling 3a (socs3a) gene. The role of Socs3a in Trpm7-mediated signaling is supported by the findings that socs3a mRNA level is elevated in the trpm7 mutants, and antisense inhibition of socs3a expression ...
The conventional technique of impression cytology provides a non-invasive method for the evaluation of conjunctival epithelium alterations. Using indirect immunofluorescence procedures two inflammatory markers, class II MHC antigens HLA DR and the receptor to IgE (CD23), were sought in impression cytology specimens obtained from 80 patients. In normal subjects conjunctival epithelial cells did not show any reactivity. Only scattered dendritic cells were found to express class II antigens but not the receptor to IgE. In contrast patients with chronic conjunctivitis of various aetiologies, mainly infectious or allergic, had 40-100% of brightly positive conjunctival cells for one or both antigens. In these cases epithelial cells and goblet cells reacted similarly. Twenty four eyes in 12 patients with idiopathic dry eye syndrome disclosed results similar to those from normal conjunctival specimens. However 18 other specimens from patients suffering from idiopathic tear ...

The TRPM4 gene provides instructions for making a protein called transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily M member 4 (TRPM4). This protein acts as a channel, opening and closing at specific times to control the flow of positively charged atoms (cations) into and out of cells. The TRPM4 channel is embedded in the outer membrane of cells throughout the body, but it is abundant in heart (cardiac) cells and plays key roles in these cells ability to generate and transmit electrical signals. TRPM4 channels play a major role in signaling the start of each heartbeat, coordinating the contractions of the upper and lower chambers of the heart, and maintaining a normal heart rhythm.. In addition to regulating electric signaling in the heart, the TRPM4 channel is important for the normal functioning of the immune system, the nervous system, the kidneys, and the pancreas. ...

The conjunctiva is a mucous membrane that covers the sclera and lines the inside of the eyelids. Throughout the conjunctiva are goblet cells that secrete mucins to protect the eye. Chronic inflammatory diseases such as allergic conjunctivitis and early dry eye lead to increased goblet cell mucin secretion into tears and ocular surface disease. The purpose of this study was to determine the actions of the inflammatory mediators, the leukotrienes and the proresolution resolvins, on secretion from cultured rat and human conjunctival goblet cells. We found that both cysteinyl leukotriene (CysLT) receptors, CysLT(1) and CysLT(2,) were present in rat conjunctiva and in rat and human cultured conjunctival goblet cells. All leukotrienes LTB(4), LTC(4), LTD(4), and LTE(4), as well as PGD(2), stimulated goblet cell secretion in rat goblet cells. LTD(4) and LTE(4) increased the intracellular Ca(2+) concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)), and LTD(4) activated ERK1/2. The CysLT(1) receptor ...
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 ...
Ion channels/pumps are essential regulators of organ homeostasis and disease. In the present review we discuss the role of the mechanosensitive cation channel, transient receptor potential vanilloid 4 (TRPV4), in cytokine secretion and pulmonary inflammatory diseases such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, and acute lung injury/acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). TRPV4 has been shown to play a role in lung diseases associated with lung parenchymal stretch or stiffness. TRPV4 indirectly mediates hypotonicity-induced smooth muscle contraction and airway remodeling in asthma. Further, the literature suggests that in cystic fibrosis TRPV4 may improve ciliary beat frequency (CBF) enhancing mucociliary clearance, while at the same time increasing pro-inflammatory cytokine secretion/lung tissue injury. Currently it is understood that the role of ...

Primary hypomagnesemia is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by renal or intestinal magnesium (Mg2+) wasting, resulting in tetany, cardiac arrhythmias, and seizures. The kidney plays an essential role in maintaining blood Mg2+ levels, with a prominent function for the Mg2+-transporting channel transient receptor potential cation channel, subfamily M, member 6 (TRPM6) in the distal convoluted tubule (DCT). In the DCT, Mg2+ reabsorption is an active transport process primarily driven by the negative potential across the luminal membrane. Here, we studied a family with isolated autosomal dominant hypomagnesemia and used a positional cloning approach to identify an N255D mutation in KCNA1, a gene encoding the voltage-gated potassium (K+) channel Kv1.1.

The aim of this study was to investigate whether the components for fibroblast mediated prevention of T cell apoptosis were present in vivo in human conjunctiva. This is the first report of the in vivo production of IFNβ by HTF, staining positive in the conjunctiva of three of our glaucoma patients. In addition, the conjunctiva of our glaucoma patients contained T lymphocytes. Therefore, our study has that all the components for this particular fibroblast/T cell interaction were present in human conjunctiva.. T cell/fibroblast interactions appear to have an important role in the development of abnormal scarring.2 Hitchings and Grierson showed that early trabeculectomy failures were associated with excessive inflammation and increased conjunctival fibroblast numbers.14 Nuzzi et al demonstrated that the preoperative conjunctiva of repeat filtration surgery patients contained an increased number of activated T lymphocytes and fibroblasts.15 In our study, T lymphocytes and IFNβ producing ...

If you suffer from atopic keratoconjunctivitis, you may suffer from severe itching, particularly of the eye and the skin over the eye. Unlike allergic conjunctivitis, the skin around your eyes may become dry, scaly, or reddened. The skin in this area may have barely visible microwrinkles, be thickened, or have a slight increase in pigmentation from constant rubbing. Your lid margins may show loss of eyelashes. The underside of your upper lid may have islands of tissue (papillary hypertrophy) which may be irritated by contact lenses or may irritate the cornea. This complication is an important medical problem since it may result in damage to your vision if neglected. Symptoms of atopic keratoconjunctivitis may be seasonal, perennial, or both ...
The elective use of aspirin and NSAIDs is typically discouraged. A common symptom of a subconjunctival hemorrhage, itchy eyes, is often treated by applying eye drops or artificial tears to the affected eye(s), however, this is discouraged, as it may slow down the healing process. lacrimal system: Dacryoadenitis · Epiphora · Dacryocystitis · Xerophthalmia orbit: Exophthalmos · Enophthalmos Other strabismus: Esotropia/Exotropia · Hypertropia · Heterophoria (Esophoria, Exophoria) · Brown s syndrome · Duane syndrome Other binocular: Conjugate gaze palsy · Convergence insufficiency · Internuclear ophthalmoplegia · One and a half syndrome . When this happens, blood leaks into the space between the conjunctiva and sclera. Whereas a bruise typically appears black or blue underneath the skin, a subconjunctival hemorrhage initially appears bright red underneath the transparent conjunctiva ...
The success rate of glaucoma filtration surgery is closely related to conjunctival inflammation, and the main mechanism of dry eye disease (DED) is inflammation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of DED on bleb scar formation after rabbit glaucoma filtration surgery. Sixteen New Zealand white rabbits were randomly divided into control and DED groups. A DED model was induced by twice-daily topical administration of 0.1% benzalkonium chloride (BAC) drops for three weeks. Ocular examinations were performed to verify the DED model. Surgical effects were assessed, and histologic assessments were performed on the 28th postoperative day. Higher fluorescein staining scores, lower basal tear secretion levels and goblet cell counts, and increased interleukin 1β (IL-1β) levels were observed in the DED group. The DED eyes displayed significantly higher intraocular pressure (IOP)% on the 14th postoperative day; a smaller bleb area on days 14, 21 and 28; and a shorter bleb survival time. Moreover,
Purpose: To establish a rabbit model for keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) to study autologous submandibular gland transfer for treating severe KCS.. Methods: In 2 groups of 10 rabbits, left eyes were operated and right eyes were controls. In the trichloroacetic acid-treated group, the lacrimal and harderian glands and nictitating membrane were removed surgically; the palpebral and bulbar conjunctiva were swabbed with 50% trichloroacetic acid. In the non-trichloroacetic acid-treated group, the lacrimal and harderian glands and nictitating membrane were surgically removed. The Schirmer test was performed preoperatively and 1, 2, 3, and 4 months postoperatively. Corneal densities of rose bengal and fluorescein staining were scored every month postoperatively. At 4 months, the cornea and bulbar conjunctiva were removed from operated and control eyes for histopathology. The upper bulbar conjunctiva was used to determine goblet cell density.. Results: Compared with preoperative conditions, tear ...
TRPM8 is a member of the transient receptor potential ion channel superfamily, which is expressed in sensory neurons and is activated by cold and cooling compounds, such as menthol. Activation of TRPM8 by agonists takes place through shifts in its voltage activation curve, allowing channel opening at physiological membrane potentials. Here, we studied the role of the N-glycosylation occurring at the pore loop of TRPM8 on the function of the channel. Using heterologous expression of recombinant channels in HEK293 cells we found that the unglycosylated TRPM8 mutant (N934Q) displays marked functional differences compared with the wild type channel. These differences include a shift in the threshold of temperature activation and a reduced response to menthol and cold stimuli. Biophysical analysis indicated that these modifications are due to a shift in the voltage dependence of TRPM8 activation toward more ...
Transient receptor potential channels are important mediators of thermal and mechanical stimuli and play an important role in neuropathic pain. The contribution of hereditary variants in the genes of transient receptor potential channels to neuropathic pain is unknown. We investigated the frequency of transient receptor potential ankyrin 1, transient receptor potential melastin 8 and transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 single nucleotide polymorphisms and their impact on somatosensory abnormalities in neuropathic pain patients. Within the German Research Network on Neuropathic Pain (Deutscher Forscbungsverbund Neuropathischer Schmerz) 371 neuropathic pain patients were phenotypically characterized using ...

Mucolipidosis type IV (MLIV) is a lysosomal storage disease caused by mutations in the MCOLN1 gene, which encodes the lysosomal transient receptor potential ion channel mucolipin-1 (TRPML1). MLIV causes impaired motor and cognitive development, progressive loss of vision and gastric achlorhydria. How loss of TRPML1 leads to severe psychomotor retardation is currently unknown and there is no therapy for MLIV. White matter abnormalities and a hypoplastic corpus callosum are the major hallmarks of MLIV brain pathology. Here we report that loss of TRPML1 in mice results in developmental aberrations of brain myelination due to deficient maturation and loss of oligodendrocytes. Defective myelination is evident in Mcoln1−/− mice at post-natal day 10, an active stage of post-natal myelination in the mouse brain. Expression of mature oligodendrocyte markers is reduced in Mcoln1−/− mice at post-natal day 10 and remains lower throughout the course of disease. We ...

AU - Story, Gina M.. PY - 2009/4. Y1 - 2009/4. N2 - Pain perception begins with the activation of primary sensory nociceptors. Over the past decade, flourishing research has revealed that members of the Transient Receptor Potential (TRP) ion channel family are fundamental molecules that detect noxious stimuli and transduce a diverse range of physical and chemical energy into action potentials in somatosensory nociceptors. Here we highlight the roles of TRP vanilloid 1 (TRPV1), TRP melastatin 8 (TRPM8) and TRP ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) in the activation of nociceptors by heat and cold environmental stimuli, mechanical force, and by chemicals including exogenous ...
Hydrogen sulfide (H,sub,2,/sub,S), a malodorous gas with the characteristic odor of rotten eggs, has been recognized as an important endogenous gaseous signaling molecule of the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and nervous systems. Besides acting as a potent vasodilator and an atypical neuromodulator, H,sub,2,/sub,S is increasingly being established as a novel mediator of inflammation. However, the part played by H,sub,2,/sub,S in modulating neurogenic inflammatory response in sepsis is not known. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate the role of H,sub,2,/sub,S in mediating neurogenic inflammation in a mouse model of polymicrobial sepsis induced by cecal ligation and puncture (CLP). Of major significance in the development of neurogenic inflammation is the transient receptor potential vanilloid type 1 (TRPV1) receptor, a non-selective cation channel found predominantly ...
The discovery of genetic variants that substantially alter an individuals perception of pain has led to a step-change in our understanding of molecular events underlying the detection and transmission of noxious stimuli by the peripheral nervous system. For example, the voltage-gated sodium ion channel Na v 1.7 is expressed selectively in sensory and autonomic neurons; inactivating mutations in SCN9A, which encodes Na v 1.7, result in congenital insensitivity to pain, whereas gain-of-function mutations in this gene produce distinct pain syndromes such as inherited erythromelalgia, paroxysmal extreme pain disorder, and smal l-fibre neuropathy. Heterozygous mutations in TRPA1, which encodes the transient receptor potential cation channel, can cause familial episodic pain syndromes, and variants of genes coding for the voltage-gated sodium channels Na v 1.8 (SCN10A) and Na v 1.9 (SCN11A) lead to small-fibre neuropathy and ...

Cerebellar Purkinje cells (PCs) express a large amount of the γ isoform of protein kinase C (PKCγ) and a modest level of PKCα. The PKCγ is involved in the pruning of climbing fiber (CF) synapses from developing PCs, and PKCα plays a critical role in long-term depression (LTD) at parallel fiber (PF)-PC synapses. Moreover, the PKC signaling in PCs negatively modulates the nonselective transient receptor potential cation channel type 3 (TRPC3), the opening of which elicits slow EPSCs at PF-PC synapses. Autosomal dominant spinocerebellar ataxia type 14 (SCA14) is caused by mutations in PKCγ ...
Cystic fibrosis (CF) lung disease is characterized by an inflammatory response that can lead to terminal respiratory failure. The cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is mutated in CF, and we hypothesized that dysfunctional CFTR in platelets, which are key participants in immune responses, is a central determinant of CF inflammation. We found that deletion of CFTR in platelets produced exaggerated acute lung inflammation and platelet activation after intratracheal LPS or Pseudomonas aeruginosa challenge. CFTR loss of function in mouse or human platelets resulted in agonist-induced hyperactivation and increased calcium entry into platelets. Inhibition of the transient receptor potential cation channel 6 (TRPC6) reduced platelet activation and calcium flux, and reduced lung injury in CF mice after intratracheal LPS or Pseudomonas aeruginosa challenge. CF subjects receiving CFTR modulator therapy showed partial restoration ...

Pre- and intraoperative mitomycin C for recurrent pterygium associated with symblepharon Isyaku MohammedDepartment of Ophthalmology, Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Kano, NigeriaBackground: Treatment of recurrent pterygium associated with symblepharon usually involves the use of tissue grafting and/or the intraoperative application of mitomycin C (MMC). For the graft, a conjunctival/limbal autograft and/or amniotic membrane may be used. This generally requires extra technical skills and assistance, an increase in the cost and duration of surgery, and a more extensive anesthesia (a complete eye block or general anesthesia). Although widely used, safety concerns have been raised over MMC in the treatment of pterygia.Objective: The objective of this case report is to report the successful use of preoperative subconjunctival injection of low-dose (0.02%) MMC one month before bare sclera excision of a multirecurrent pterygium, as well as the concomitant intraoperative application ...
BACKGROUND: The kidney is one of the affected organs involved in the clinical symptoms of parathyroid hormone (PTH)-related disorders, like primary hyperparathyroidism and familial hypocalciuric hypercalcemia. The molecular mechanism(s) underlying alterations in renal Ca(2+) handling in these disorders is poorly understood. METHODS: Parathyroidectomized and PTH-supplemented rats and mice infused with the calcimimetic compound NPS R-467 were used to study the in vivo effect of PTH on the expression of renal transcellular Ca(2+) transport proteins, including the epithelial Ca(2+) channel transient receptor potential, vanilloid, member 5 (TRPV5), calbindins, and the Na(+)/Ca(2+)-exchanger (NCX1). In addition, the effect of PTH on transepithelial Ca(2+) transport in rabbit connecting tubule/cortical collecting duct (CNT/CCD) primary cultures was determined. RESULTS: Decreased PTH levels in parathyroidectomized rats or NPS ...
In this study, we observed a low recurrence rate (2.72%) for an anchored conjunctival rotation flap technique in primary pterygium surgery. Furthermore, no recurrence was observed during the follow-up period (mean of 17.97 months) when nylon sutures were used.. The recurrence rate after pterygium surgery is related to several factors, such as age, race, the clinical features of the pterygium, surgical experience, suture material, glue material, and the use of adjunctive agents, such as mitomycin C [12-15]. Because standardizing all parameters is implausible, a clear comparison of recurrence rates between studies are difficult. However, it is noteworthy that the recurrence rate for the anchored conjunctival rotation flap technique was relatively low compared to that of primary pterygium excision using conjunctival autograft (4.55~ 20%), which was recently reported for the same area and population [14, 16-18].. The key features of the anchored conjunctival rotation flap technique are as follows. ...

Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) suffer from pain and joint disability. The transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1) channel expressed on sensory neurones and non-neuronal cells mediates pain transduction and inflammation and it has been implicated in RA. However, there is little information on the contribution of TRPA1 for human disease. Here, we investigated the expression of TRPA1 on peripheral blood leukocytes and the circulating levels of its endogenous activators 4-hydroxynonenal (4-HNE) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in RA patients treated or not with the anti-rheumatic leflunomide (LFN) or the anti-TNFα adalimumab (ADA). We also assessed whether TRPA1 expression correlates with joint pain and disability, in addition to the immune changes in RA. TRPA1 expression on peripheral blood leukocytes correlated with pain severity and disability. TRPA1 levels on these cells were associated with the numbers of polymorphonuclear and the activation of ...

A close exposure of the eyes of synthetic materialused in stuffed toy animals, blankets, beddings andpullover sweaters may cause penetration of the conjunctivaby synthetic fibres. Usually, foreign bodies,that comes into contact with the ocular surface areremoved by the eye protective mechanisms as blinkingand tearing (2, 4, 5). Occasionally, foreign bodiesmay be retained in the eyelid fornix, encapsulated bythe mucous, embedded in the underlying stroma andmay induce a local inflammatory response (6, 7, 8).This may cause synthetic fibre granuloma formation inthe conjunctiva, which condition is commonly knownas „teddy bear" granuloma because of the origin ofthe synthetic fibres (1, 2).. Foreign body granulomas of the conjunctiva causedby synthetic fibres were first described by Weinbergand associates, in 1984.3 Since then eighteen caseshave been reported in the literature (1). The ages ofthe reported patients ranged from 26 months to 17years (2, 3). The granulomas usually were presented asa ...

This study consisted of 2 phases. In Phase 1, participants wore contact lenses pre-soaked overnight in contact lens solution for 2 hours and 4 hours, separate days. A minimum of 7 days separated the wear periods. Ocular surface cells were collected after both wear periods. In Phase 2, participants wore their habitual contact lenses on a daily wear basis for 4 weeks with habitual lens care. Ocular surface cells were collected after Day 1 and Day 28. Phase 2 included eligible participants who completed Phase 1 and new participants. A participant was considered to be asymptomatic if he/she can typically wear contact lenses comfortably for at least 10 hours/day a minimum of 5 days/week, and symptomatic if he/she typically wears contact lenses for a minimum of 3 days/week and experiences ocular discomfort after less than 6 hours of wear. Phase 1 participants not eligible to participate in Phase 2 or uninterested in continuing into Phase 2 were exited from the study ...
Hair growth starts from hair follicles that reside in dermis, and abnormal hair growth is an early sign of hair follicle disease or systemic illness such as alopecia or hair loss. Therefore, identifying a target critical for dysfunctional hair follicles is fundamental to alleviating dermatologic or systemic diseases with hair abnormalities. The warm temperature-activated Ca2+-permeable transient receptor potential vanilloid 3 (TRPV3) channel protein is abundantly expressed in the skin keratinocytes, and dysfunctional TRPV3 causes human congenital Olmsted syndrome, characterized by skin diseases and alopecia, indicating an important role for TRPV3 in hair follicle development and hair growth. To validate TRPV3 as a therapeutic target, we investigated the impact of pharmacological modulation of TRPV3 on hair growth using a combination of biochemical and cell ...

Capsaicinol is an ingredient of hot red pepper. In this study, we developed a novel method for capsaicinol synthesis and examined capsaicinols physiological effects on capsaicin receptor (TRPV1)-related actions. Allylic oxidation of capsaicin by palladium acetate (Pd(OAc),SUB,2,/SUB,) resulted in the formation of (±)-capsaicinol acetate at a 7.2% yield in a single step. The effectiveness of (±)-capsaicinol in TRPV1 activation (EC,SUB,50,/SUB,=1.1 μ,small,M,/small,) was found to be weaker than that of capsaicin (EC,SUB,50,/SUB,=0.017 μ,small,M,/small,), whereas the efficacy of (±)-capsaicinol reached 75% of that of capsaicin. Intravenous administration of (±)-capsaicinol in anesthetized rats dose-dependently enhanced adrenaline secretion from the adrenal gland. The response to a 5 mg/kg-dose of (±)-capsaicinol was comparable to that of a 0.05 mg/kg-dose of capsaicin. The relative pungency of capsaicinol to capsaicin was coincident with the relative ...

TRPV1 is involved in the regulation of pain pathways (24). Capsaicin initially activates TRPV1 and excites nociceptive neurons, leading to the perception of pain. However, prolonged and repetitive exposure to capsaicin causes TRPV1 to become insensitive to noxious stimuli, resulting in desensitization (10). Thus, capsaicin-containing drugs have been developed to treat neuropathic pain through topical administration. Accumulating evidence suggests that repeated or high-dose treatments of capsaicin could cause apoptosis of TRPV1-expressing cells, primarily through the elevation of intracellular calcium ion levels (25), indicating that TRPV1-unresponsive or deficient states might be clinically important with exposure to capsaicin for a prolonged period. Because capsaicin-induced initial activation of TRPV1 is inevitably followed by desensitization, the possibility that capsaicin affects intracellular signals ...

In the present study we have investigated the role of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3), functional IP3 receptors (IP3Rs) and the human homologue of the Drosophila transient receptor potential (Trp) channel, human Trp1 (hTrp1), in store-mediated Ca2+ entry (SMCE) in human platelets. Inhibition of IP3 recycling using Li+, or the inhibition of IP3Rs using xestospongin C, both resulted in the inhibition of SMCE activation following Ca2+ store depletion using thapsigargin. Co-immunoprecipitation experiments indicated that endogenously expressed hTrp1 couples with IP3R type II, but not types I or III, in platelets with depleted intracellular Ca2+ stores, but not in control, undepleted cells. These results provide strong evidence for the activation of SMCE by conformational coupling involving de novo association between IP3Rs and a plasma membrane channel in normal human cells.. ...

(also known as "Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid", "MMP", "Benign mucosal pemphigoid," "Benign mucous membrane pemphigoid," "Ocular pemphigus," and "Scarring pemphigoid") is a rare chronic autoimmune subepithelial blistering disease characterized by erosive skin lesions of the mucous membranes and skin that results in scarring of at least some sites of involvement.. Cicatricial pemphigoid has been referred to by a variety of designations based largely on its site of involvements, with examples of such terminology including "desquamative gingivitis," "ocular pemphigus," and "benign mucous membrane pemphigoid." However, currently "...such designations are thought to be confusing or somewhat misleadings (e.g., pemphigus in this context is a misnomer, and this disorder is hardly benign given the extent of morbidity it can cause)." ...
Infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis is one of the commonest eye diseases of cattle. A specialised organism Moraxella bovis, is generally held to be responsible for the often serious damage to the cornea and the conjunctiva. Temporary blindness is common but even without treatment, most cattle eventually regain their vision. Although the disease has been recognised for more than 30 years in most cattle-farming areas of the world, only in the past 8-10 years has it become evident in New Zealand. A wide range of antibacterial products has been used for treatment but there has been very little definitive work undertaken which would form a sound basis for any schedule of medication. In view of the information lacking in this respect, it was decided to study the pharmacokinetics of an antimicrobial drug in the conjunctival sac fluid after different formulations of the drug had been administered by different routes. Penicillin was chosen as the model antibiotic because it is remarkably free of ...
Pterygium refers to any winglike triangular membrane occurring in the neck, eyes, knees, elbows, ankles or digits. The term comes from the Greek word pterygion meaning "wing". Popliteal pterygium syndrome, which affects the legs. Pterygium (conjunctiva) A pterygium grows in response to exposure to ultraviolet light. They are more common in light-skinned people living nearer the equator, particularly where outdoor activities are popular. As the pterygium grows, it replaces the corneal epithelium, and erodes the superficial layers beneath it. These layers are Bowmans membrane, and the anterior corneal stromal lamellae. The pterygium pulls and distorts the cornea as it enlarges. A pterygium reduces the vision in several ways: Distortion of the corneal optics. This begins usually when the pterygium is greater than 2mm from the corneal edge (limbus). Disruption of the tear film. The tear film is the first lens in the eye. Pterygia are associated with eyelid inflammation, called Blepharitis. Growth ...
A positive test will show triangular stipple staining of the nasal and temporal bulbar conjunctiva in the interpalpebral area and possible punctate staining of the cornea, especially in the lower two-thirds.. False-positive staining may occur in conditions such as chronic conjunctivitis, acute chemical conjunctivitis secondary to hair spray use and drugs such as tetracaine and cocaine, exposure keratitis, superficial punctate keratitis secondary to toxic or idiopathic phenomena, and foreign bodies in the conjunctiva.. The stain will also color mucus and epithelial debris, which may mask the results. Certain patients who are normal will show some positive staining to rose bengal on the cornea.. Because of this, conjunctival as well as corneal staining should be present before the diagnosis of keratoconjunctivitis sicca is made.

What are the symptoms of pink eye?Patients with pink eye will experience dilation of the conjunctival vessels resulting in redness ansd swelling of the conjunctiva, usually accompanied by discharge. Other symptoms of pink eye include itchiness, a foreign body sensation, tearing, sensitivity to light, and a thick discharge that crusts over the eyelashes at night, making opening the eyes in the morning difficult.. How is conjunctivitis treated?. Treatment for pink eye depends on whether the infection is viral or bacterial. If its viral, the conjunctivitis will usually clear up on its own within a week. Your physician may recommend several treatments to relieve any discomfort to your eyes. These include applying warm or cold compresses several times daily, cleaning your eyelids with a wet cloth, and artificial tears. If the conjunctivitis is severe, topical steroids may be added. If the conjunctivitis is bacterial, your eye professional will prescribe antibiotic eye drops, ointments or pills. ...
Dry Eye (Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca) Symptoms and Treatments in Dogs - Keratoconjunctivitis sicca is a disorder of the tear glands that results in insufficient aqueous (water like) tear production and leads to a dry cornea. The tear film contains less of the aqueous layer and more of the mucus layer.
Dry eye syndrome (DES), also known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) or keratitis sicca, is a multifactorial disease of the tears and the ocular surface that results in discomfort, visual disturbance, and tear film instability with potential damage to the ocular surface. It is accompanied by increased osmolarity of the tear film and inflamm...
The differential diagnosis for pseudomembranes or membranes most commonly includes severe viral or bacterial conjunctivitis, Stevens Johnson syndrome, and chemical burns. Less common are ligneous conjunctivitis, ocular cicatricial pemphigoid, and superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis. Ligneous conjunctivitis can be distinguished from other causes of pseudomembranes because of its thicker, more homogenous appearance, and by patient history as it is more common in infants than are other causes of membranes such as ocular cicatricial pemphigoid. Pseudomembranes can be differentiated from membranes on peeling: the presence of blood after peeling favors the diagnosis of a true membrane ...
in nociceptors expressing transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1). BRAFNav1.8 mice showed de novo neuronal responsiveness to pruritogens, enhanced pruriceptor excitability, and heightened evoked and spontaneous scratching behavior. GRP receptor expression was increased in the spinal cord, indicating augmented coding capacity for itch subsequent to amplified pruriceptive inputs. Enhanced GRP expression and sustained ERK phosphorylation were observed in sensory neurons of mice with allergic contact dermatitis- or dry skin-elicited itch; however, spinal ERK activation was not required for maintaining central sensitization of itch. Inhibition of either BRAF or GRP signaling attenuated itch sensation in chronic itch mouse models. These data uncover RAF/MEK/ERK signaling as a key regulator that confers a subset of nociceptors with pruriceptive properties to initiate and maintain long-lasting itch ...
Why is this desirable? Firstly, prostaglandin PGE1 has anti-inflammatory properties, further helping to reduce meibomitis and associated ocular surface inflammation. More importantly, PGE1 acts on G protein-coupled receptors designated E-prostanoid or EP receptors. Specifically, PGE1 binds to EP2 and EP4 receptors to activate adenylate cyclase to increase cyclic AMP (cAMP).12 PGE1 has been shown to stimulate aqueous tear production in rabbits and cAMP has been shown to stimulate aqueous tear secretion in dry eye patients. Secondly, essential fatty acids are used by the meibomian glands in the eyelid to manufacture the oil layer of the tear film. High performance liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry studies have shown that the polar lipid profiles of meibomian gland secretions in female Sjögrens patients are controlled by the dietary intake of omega-3 essential fatty acids. Patients with high intakes of omega-3s show a single-prominent-peak polar lipid ...

John D. Sheppard, MD, Chief Medical Editor. The understanding of keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), also known as Chronic Dry Eye Disease or Dry Eye Syndrome, has changed dramatically in recent years. Until the late 1990s, KCS was thought to have been due to aqueous insufficiency. Today, KCS is understood to be a multifactorial disease that also involves inflammation of the ocular surface and lacrimal gland, neurotrophic deficiency, and meibomian dysfunction. Delay in treatment may cause disease of the ocular surface. The American Academy of Ophthalmology, in November 2003, released guidelines for treatment that recognizes these contributing factors to the epidemiology of KCS and provides evidence-based guidelines for treatment. This collection of review articles places the etiology of KCS, the AAO recommendations, and the most recent advances in treatment in perspective for practitioners, MCOs, and physicians and pharmacists who serve on pharmacy and therapeutic committees.. Highlights:. ...
SATURDAY, Jan. 29 (HealthDay News) -- Dry eye syndrome is common in winter because of cold, dry outdoor air and dry indoor heat, says an eye expert.. Symptoms include pain, blurred vision, a scratchy or burning sensation, or even watery eyes as the eyes try to compensate for the dryness, explains Pittsburgh-area ophthalmologist Dr. Michael Azar.. "Because both dry eye and allergies can cause watery eyes, differentiating the two conditions can be difficult and may require an eye exam," he said in a news release from the Institute for Good Medicine at the Pennsylvania Medical Society.. Dry eye can occur at any age, but is more common among older adults, especially post-menopausal women. In some people, dry eye syndrome may be related to:. ...
Purpose. To evaluate dry eye disease and corneal sensitivity in patients with early and active Graves ophthalmopathy (GO). Methods. A total of 52 eyes of 26 patients with early GO and 74 eyes of 37 age- and sex-matched controls were included in our study. Dry eye disease was assessed based on the criteria of the International Dry Eye Workshop. Diagnosis of early GO was based on the European Group on Graves Orbitopathy consensus statement. Clinical Activity Score (CAS) and Werner-NOSPECS Score were determined. Corneal sensitivity was assessed using a Cochet-Bonnet aesthesiometer. Results. A total of 67.8% of patients with early GO and 13.5% of healthy controls had ocular surface dryness (p>0.001). The mean Schirmer test score was significantly lower in patients with early GO (12.88 ± 7.94 mm [right eyes] and 14.04 ± 9.00 mm [left eyes]) than in controls (18.08 ± 7.26 mm [right eyes] and 18.05 ± 7.50 mm [left eyes] [p>0.05]). The tear film break-up time was lower in patients by 5.46 seconds ...
Objective The purpose of this study is to use porcine small intestinal submucosa (PSIS) as a corneal graft in 10 cases of staphyloma in dogs. Materials & Methods Corneal grafts using porcine small intestinal submucosa (PSIS) were performed in 10 dogs with staphyloma. After general anesthesia and aseptic preparation, nonviable tissue was removed from the recipient staphyloma bed. The iris was pushed back into the anterior chamber before carefully detached from the corneal wound. The PSIS graft sheet was rehydrated in lactate Ringers solution for 5 minutes prior to the placement on to the corneal lesion, and interruptedly sutured to the cornea with 8/10 polyglactin. The third eyelid was sutured on to the palpebral conjunctiva with simple Mattress using 6/0 silk for 14 days. Result Within 7 weeks, all dogs returned to normal vision with pupillary light and menace reflexes. Minimal anterior synechia and scar in accordance with the size of prior corneal lesion were present. Conclusion PSIS is ...

Ocular thelaziosis caused by Thelazia callipaeda is a vector-borne disease affecting dogs and humans. We report a case of thelaziosis in a 10-year-old German Shepherd dog from Vila Real city (Portugal). Ophthalmological examination revealed bulbar and nictitating membrane conjunctival hyperemia with serous discharge noted at the left medial canthus and blepharitis. Schirmer tear test value and intraocular pressure were within the reference ranges in both eyes, and biomicroscopy showed a transparent cornea without lesions or edema and no inflammatory reaction in the anterior chamber. No funduscopic alterations were detected by direct and indirect ophthalmoscopic examination. When testing the nasolacrimal patency, two white worms were observed on the caruncle conjunctival surface with undulating movements that increased with light intensity. In total, eight worms were collected and morphologically identified as T. callipaeda (seven mature females and one male). PCR amplification of a 689 ...

The reduction in ocular surface temperature toward the end of post-cataract surgery follow-up may be associated with increased instability of the tear film after phacoemulsification. Therefore, patient awareness regarding the possibility of clinical symptoms of dry eye syndrome during the first month after surgery should be part of clinical management of cataract surgery. Ocular surface temperature did not increase after cataract surgery, suggesting the absence of significant inflammation, and the temperature about 1 month after cataract surgery was comparable to that before surgery. Nevertheless, the negative correlation between age and ocular surface temperature should be of concern in the elderly ...

Dry eye syndrome is an extremely common condition that causes dry, itchy, red and gritty feeling eyes and blurred vision. Dry eye syndrome can occur due to computer and mobile device use, hormonal change, age, allergies, environment, meibomian gland dysfunction and rosacea. Many treatments are available for this condition, although some people may experience chronic dry eye symptoms. Lubricating eye drops will offer temporary relief but dry eye syndrome progressively worsens with age and eye usage. A detailed evaluation is required for all the different tear glands and allergies to diagnose dry eye syndrome accurately.. More about Dry Eye Syndrome. ...
Inability of the eye to produce tears adequately or facing the problem in which the tears produced are not of the correct consistency and quickly evaporates, results in dry eyes.. Inflammation of the eye surface along with dry eye may also occur. Without treatment, it can lead to ulcers, pain, or scars on the cornea, and even loss of some vision. However, a permanent loss of vision due to dry eye is not commonly observed.. It may be difficult to do certain activities such as reading for an extended period of time or using a computer due to this condition. Dry eyes can reduce the tolerance for dry environments, such as the air inside an airplane.. Dry eye condition is known by many names such as dry eye syndrome, keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), lacrimal keratoconjunctivitis, dysfunctional tear syndrome, aqueous tear deficiency, evaporative tear deficiency and LASIK-induced neurotrophic epitheliopathy (LNE).. What are the types of dry eye?. 1) Failure of the lacrimal glands to produce adequate ...
On clinical examination, the patient had mild edema and ecchymosis of the left upper eyelid, mild proptosis of the left eye, a small subconjunctival hemorrhage in the temporal conjunctiva, and commotio retinae in his left macula. Ishihara color plates were full in both eyes. There was no resistance to retropulsion and no relative afferent pupillary defect. He was given oral antibiotics and a three-day course of oral steroids. He was followed closely and 1 week later referred to the oculoplastic surgery service for evaluation of the orbital foreign body. At the time of this evaluation (Figure 1), his visual acuity in the left eye had decreased to 20/40, and he had developed a mild left afferent pupillary defect. In addition, there was restriction of gaze to the extreme right secondary to pain ...
