To determine the efficacy of cataract surgery alone and combined with two minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) procedures (phaco-ELT and phaco-aiT). Data was collected from 12/2007 to 02/2012 in this retrospective, non-randomized, comparative single surgery center study. Reduction in IOP and hypotensive medication (AGD), change in visual acuity, success rates, and complications were computed by comparing preoperative data with data at 1 year postoperatively. A total of 245 eyes of 245 subjects were included. Study eyes underwent phaco alone (38 eye) or combined phaco-ELT (105 eye) and phaco-aiT (102 eye). Phaco alone, combined phaco-ELT, and combined phaco-aiT lowered IOP by 1.5 ± 4.0 mmHg, 4.3 ± 5.6, and 5.3 ± 4.5 mmHg, respectively (P < 0.01). Survival time of phaco-ELT outreached survival time of phaco alone and combined phaco-aiT (20.6 ± 1.0 vs. 13.2 ± 0.4 and 12.9 ± 0.6 month, respectively). No serious complications or adverse events occurred. None of the cases required a subsequent procedure within the first year to lower IOP further. All three surgical procedures lowered IOP and reduced medication. However, the IOP-lowering efficacy of the two combined MIGS procedures exceeded the effect of phaco alone. A combined ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.

Enzyme Evolution

This feed focuses on molecular models of enzyme evolution and new approaches (such as adaptive laboratory evolution) to metabolic engineering of microorganisms. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pharmacology of Proteinopathies

This feed focuses on the pharmacology of proteinopathies - diseases in which proteins abnormally aggregate (i.e. Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, etc.). Discover the latest research in this field with this feed.

Alignment-free Sequence Analysis Tools

Alignment-free sequence analyses have been applied to problems ranging from whole-genome phylogeny to the classification of protein families, identification of horizontally transferred genes, and detection of recombined sequences. Here is the latest research.
