Abstract

Eales' disease is an extremely uncommon vasoproliferative retinal disease predominantly affecting otherwise healthy young men. The etiology of this condition is unknown, but its progression and clinical appearance are similar to other vasoproliferative diseases of the retina such as diabetic and sickle cell retinopathies. These similarities make Eales' disease a good prospect for inclusion in a model pattern of retinal ischemic disease and suggest that treatment by panretinal photocoagulation should be effective in this condition. We had good results in treating eight eyes diagnosed as having Eales' disease with scattered laser photocoagulation.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.

Anemia

Anemia develops when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells. Anemia of inflammation (AI, also called anemia of chronic disease) is a common, typically normocytic, normochromic anemia that is caused by an underlying inflammatory disease. Here is the latest research on anemia.
