  1. 1. rd1 Photoreceptor Degeneration: Photoreceptor Rescue and Role of Metalloproteases in Retinal Degeneration

    University dissertation from Ophthalmology (Lund), Lund University

    Author : Poonam Ahuja Jensen; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oftalmologi; Ophtalmology; retinal degeneration; Survival factors; metalloproteases;

    Abstract : The thesis is focused on an attempt to delay photoreceptor cell death in the rd1 mouse using Lens Epithelium Derived Growth Factor (LEDGF), Glutathione S-Transferase mu (GST-?? and Glutathione S-Transferase alpha (GST-?? in an organ culture paradigm as well as the role of metalloproteases (MMPs) and their tissue inhibitors in photoreceptor degeneration (TIMPs). The rd1 mouse model displays a retina degeneration which starts around day 10 with rod photoreceptor cell death. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies into The Mechanisms of Neurodegeneration and Neuroprotection in Rd1 Mouse Retina

    University dissertation from Ophthalmology (Lund), Lund University

    Author : Seifollah Azadi; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; signaling pathway ; Ophtalmology; neurotrophic factors ; Oftalmologi; retina degeneration ;

    Abstract : Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is a group of uncured retinal diseases with the world wide incidence of about 1/3500. In spite of the huge efforts in past years, the mechanisms underlying this type of hereditary blindness has not been elucidated and nor any effective treatment available. READ MORE

  3. 3. Improved computerized perimetric threshold strategies

    University dissertation from Department of Ophthalmology, Lund University

    Author : Boel Bengtsson; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; probability maps; normal limits; test time; clinical testing; test strategies. glaucoma; test algorithms; false positive answers; Visual field testing; computerized perimetry; Ophtalmology; Oftalmologi;

    Abstract : Perimetric threshold examination is the most important method for diagnosing and monitoring patients with glaucoma. Such examination, however, is time-consuming and often difficult for the elderly patients in whom glaucoma is prevalent. Shorter test strategies have been proposed, but unfortunately also with lower test quality. READ MORE

  4. 4. The cell line RN33B transplanted to adult retina

    University dissertation from Ophthalmology (Lund), Lund University

    Author : Anita Blixt Wojciechowski; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oftalmologi; host glial response; Ophtalmology; differentiation; migration; proliferation; survival; immunosuppression; RN33B; brain-derived precursor cells; retinal degeneration; subretinal transplantation;

    Abstract : The thesis describes the neural precursor cell line RN33B transplanted subretinally to adult healthy and young dystrophic rat retina. The cell line is generated from E12,5 rat raphe nucleus and transduced with the temperature sensitive mutant of the Simian Virus 40 (SV40) large T-antigen. READ MORE

  5. 5. On visual impairment in Swedish children

    University dissertation from Department of Ophthalmology, Lund University

    Author : Jonas Blohmé; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ophtalmology; Sweden; sociology; mortality; outcome; epidemiology; registration; childhood blindness; Visual impairment; children; Oftalmologi;

    Abstract : Knowledge of the epidemiology of visual impairment in children forms one of the cornerstones in paediatric ophthalmology. To gain an overview of the situation in Sweden an epidemiological study was performed. Totally 2373 visually impaired children were found, giving an age-specific prevalence of 10,9/10 000. Childhood blindness (i. READ MORE
