    Abstract : Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the most feared complication of diabetes with an overall prevalence of 21.9-36.8% and may, if untreated, lead to severe visual disability or blindness. READ MORE

  2. 2. Health economic aspects of diabetic retinopathy

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Emelie Heintz; Lars-Åke Levin; Ann-Britt Wiréhn; Josephine Mauskopf; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetes; diabetic retinopathy; health economic evaluations; quality-adjusted life years; costs; quality of life; prevalence;

    Abstract : To ensure that the resources of the health care sector are used effectively, new technologies need to be evaluated before implementation to examine if they generate health outcomes at an acceptable cost. This information can be collected by performing health economic evaluations in which the costs and health outcomes of different technologies are compared. READ MORE

  3. 3. Retinopathy in subjects with pre-diabetes and electrophysiological studies in diabetes patients with and without retinopathy

    University dissertation from Department of Ophthalmology, Lund University

    Author : Maria Tyrberg; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; diabetic retinopathy; full-field electroretinography; multifocal electroretinography; impaired fasting glucose;

    Abstract : Diabetes is increasing worldwide and hence the risk developing complications where retinopathy is the theme of this study. The aim of the study was to evaluate the presence of (vascular) retinopathy in subjects with the pre-diabetes stage, impaired fasting glucose (IFG), and the development of retinopathy in these subjects during five years.

  4. 4. Glycaemic control: evaluation of HbA1c as a risk factor and the effect of modern insulins in clinical practice

    University dissertation from Department of Ophthalmology, Lund University

    Author : Marcus Lind; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HbA1c; glargine; lispro; time; retinopathy; clinical practice; electronical tracking; record system;

    Abstract : One of the ultimate goals of diabetes care is to minimise diabetic complications. When evaluating insulins it is important to understand what extent of improvements in glycaemic control is clinically relevant in preventing diabetic complications. READ MORE

  5. 5. Experimental inhibition of proliferative retinopathy

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Sylvia Almlöf Sarman; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Retinal ischemic diseases like retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), diabetic retinopathy (DRP) and retinal vein occlusion, with preretinal neovascularization (angiogenesis) that may lead to vitreous hemorrhages and retinal detachment with subsequent vision loss and blindness is a global health problem. By analyzing the potential role of molecules acting at different levels of the angiogenic cascade the presented studies aimed to widen our understanding of retinal ischemic diseases on a molecular, cellular and morphologic level.
