OBJECTIVE: To explore the temporal expression of retinal-choroidal transforming growth factor-beta2 (TGF-beta2) in form-deprived myopia (FDM) chick eyes and study the effect of an inhibitor (disulfiram, DSF) of retinoid acid (RA) synthesis on refractive development and the expression of TGF-beta2. METHODS: Ninety new hatched white leghorn chicks were divided randomly and equally into 3 groups: unilateral occluded with frosted goggles (Group A); unilateral intravitreal injection of 4 mmol of the non-specific aldehydedehydrogenase inhibitor disulfiram with further treatment with goggles (Group B); unilateral intravitreal injections of 4 mmol of disulfiram without further treatment with goggles (Group C)...

PURPOSE: The authors attempted to immortalize human corneal epithelial cells; it is difficult to propagate primary human corneal epithelial cells because of scarcity of available tissue. However, cell immortalization by virus is always accompanied by shedding of free virus. The current study was performed to establish a cell line that produces no free viral particle. METHODS: Primary cultured human corneal epithelial cells were infected with a recombinant sv40-adenovirus vector and were cloned three times to obtain a continuously growing cell line...

The recently reported finding that a moderate alcohol consumption may lower the risk of cardiovascular disease prompted a study of the effects of ethanol and acetaldehyde on proliferation, viability and collagen secretion of rabbit aortic myocytes in culture and on the spontaneous efflux reaction of human platelets in vitro. Ethanol had no effects on any of the systems and acetaldehyde did not influence platelets significantly. Fifty mumol 1(-1) acetaldehyde diminished the proliferation and collagen secretion of arterial myocytes by 20% (P less than 0...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase
