To further improve analysis of the two-flash multifocal electroretinogram (2F-mfERG) in glaucoma in regard to structure-function analysis, using discrete wavelet transform (DWT) analysis. Sixty subjects [35 controls and 25 primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG)] underwent 2F-mfERG. Responses were analyzed with the DWT. The DWT level that could best separate POAG from controls was compared to the root-mean-square (RMS) calculations previously used in the analysis of the 2F-mfERG. In a subgroup analysis, structure-function correlation was assessed between DWT, optical coherence tomography and automated perimetry (mf103 customized pattern) for the central 15°. Frequency level 4 of the wavelet variance analysis (144 Hz, WVA-144) was most sensitive (p < 0.003). It correlated positively with RMS but had a better AUC. Positive relations were found between visual field, WVA-144 and GCIPL thickness. The highest predictive factor for glaucoma diagnostic was seen in the GCIPL, but this improved further by adding the mean sensitivity and WVA-144. mfERG using WVA analysis improves glaucoma diagnosis, especially when combined with GCIPL and MS.

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.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
