Timolol maleate eye drops (0.25% and 0.5%) were used alone or in combined treatment in 220 patients with simple or capsular glaucoma. A highly significant (P less than 0.001, mean -9.4 mm Hg,-29%) decrease in the intraocular pressure (IOP) was seen in 196 (164 simple, 32 capsular) patients in the beginning of the study using timolol alone. (Inadequate control timing, deviation from the treatment definition, or adverse reactions caused the exclusion of the data of 24 patients). A total of 180 patients (151 simple, 29 capsular) completed the 6-month study. At the end of the study an IOP less than 22 mm Hg was seen in 103 (57.2%, 91 simple, 12 capsular) patients treated with timolol alone. During the follow-up period there was no significant difference in the IOP-lowering effect of timolol in the simple and the capsular group using timolol alone. Combined treatment was needed by 39 of 180 patients who completed the study. It was needed more than twice as often in the capsular group (12 patients, 41.4%) as in the simple group (27 patients, 17.9%). The IOP increased above 25 mm Hg in one-fourth of these 39 patients during the follow-up period, but there was no significant difference between the simple and the capsular group.

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.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

The Tendon Seed Network

Tendons are rich in the extracellular matrix and are abundant throughout the body providing essential roles including structure and mobility. The transcriptome of tendons is being compiled to understand the micro-anatomical functioning of tendons. Discover the latest research pertaining to the Tendon Seed Network here.
