• squamous
  • These studies suggest that proteosomal and lysosomal degradation play a role in both quality and quantity contol of Muc4 synthesis and also represent, to our knowledge, the first evidence for proteosome and lysosome involvement in mucin distribution among cell layers of squamous epithelia. (arvojournals.org)
  • Histopathologic examination of the conjunctival incisional biopsy material revealed squamous metaplastic changes at the epithelium level and subepithelial extracellular silver particles in the substantia propria, which supported the diagnosis of argyrosis (Figure 1(b) ). (hindawi.com)
  • wound
  • However, its effectiveness on corneal epithelial wound healing in patients who received pars planar vitrectomy (PPV) for diabetic retinopathy and penetrating keratoplasty has not been reported. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • In addition to XLacZ +/- mosaics, the suitability of transgenic mice from lines Y001deltaDRR and Y223 [ 30 ] (both displaying mosaic corneal GFP expression) were evaluated for wound healing studies. (biology-online.org)
  • Therefore, following initial evaluation, line Y001deltaDRR ( PAX6-GFP ) was used for the wound healing study because corneal stripes were clearer in eyes with weaker GFP expression in the lens. (biology-online.org)
  • toxicity
  • Nonthermal DBD plasma substantially suppresses corneal HSV-1 infection in vitro and ex vivo without causing pronounced toxicity. (arvojournals.org)
  • vitro
  • In this study we used an in vitro model where the interaction between the epithelium and a self-secreted fibroblast matrix can be examined. (arvojournals.org)
  • limbal
  • Characteristics of limbal stem include slow turnover rate, high proliferative potential, clonogenicity, multipotency, expression of stem cell markers, and the ability to regenerate the entire corneal epithelium. (wikipedia.org)
  • diabetic
  • Topical insulin application has been proved recently to increase corneal reepithelization rate over diabetic animals. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • In this study, we plan to perform a prospective randomized study to determine the effectiveness of topical insulin as a primary treatment for corneal epithelial defect in patients undergoing vitrectomy for diabetic retinopathy and penetrating keratoplasty. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • study
  • In this IRB-approved study, central corneal images were prospectively captured from 10 age-matched healthy control eyes, 24 eyes with clinically diagnosed dry eye and 43 eyes with clinically diagnosed Sjögren's syndrome, using IVCM. (arvojournals.org)
  • This study investigates the use of single-fit lenses for ortho-k and how they effect the corneal epithelium. (clspectrum.com)
  • The aim of this study is to demonstrate the location of conjunctival and corneal silver deposits by confocal microscopy and to evaluate the correlation between conjunctival histopathology and confocal microscopy findings in a case of occupational argyrosis. (hindawi.com)
  • capacity
  • Comparison of three sources of wild-type PAO1 in the blot/EGTA model showed varying capacity to penetrate and damage the epithelium, correlating with differences in T3S efficiency. (arvojournals.org)
  • Treatment
  • In order to assess adequate treatment conditions for the corneal model, we used cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC), which has been recognized as an irritant chemical by the Draize eye test. (or.jp)
  • mice
  • Mice with a 1-Mb duplication developed corneal hyperplasia and thymic tumors, while two different 3- to 4-cM deficiencies were embryonically lethal in heterozygous mice. (genetics.org)
  • eyes
  • Eyes treated with BSS+ required 7-8 applications to maintain sufficient corneal hydration during the 20 minute test period, while those treated with CP required 1-2 applications. (arvojournals.org)
