PURPOSE: Interindividual variance in optic nerve head (ONH) position, axial length, and location of the temporal raphe suggest that customizing mapping between visual field locations and ONH sectors for individuals may be clinically useful. Herein we quantify the proportion of the population predicted to have structure-function mappings that markedly deviate from "average," and thus would benefit from customized mapping. DESIGN: Database study and case report. PARTICIPANTS: Population database of 2836 eyes from the Beijing Eye Study and a single case report of an individual with primary open-angle glaucoma...

Purpose: To evaluate a frequently used regression model and a new, modified regression model to estimate cerebrospinal fluid pressure (CSFP). Methods: Datasets from the Beijing iCOP study from Tongren Hospital, Beijing, China, and the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, were tested in this retrospective, case-control study. An often-used regression model derived from the Beijing iCOP dataset, but without radiographic data, was used to predict CSFP by using demographic and physiologic data...

METHOD: Retrospective analysis was performed on the clinical and EEG data of 105 patients with anti-NMDAR encephalitis treated in Beijing Children's Hospital (August 2011-March 2015). Of the 105 patients, 38 were male and 67 were female.The age of onset was from 6 months and 26 days to 15 years and 8 months (average (8±4)years)...

To study the molecular characteristics of Chlamydia trachomatis, the major outer membrane protein gene (ompA) of C. trachomatis from primary school students with trachoma residing in the Qinghai Tibetan area was sequenced and compared with the same serotype in GenBank. In Jianshetang Primary School and Galeng Central Primary School in the Galeng Tibetan Township of Qinghai Haidong Sala Autonomous County, scraped samples were collected from the upper tarsal conjunctiva and lower conjunctival sac of both eyes of 45 students with trachoma, stored at 4°C, and transported to Beijing Tongren Hospital by air within 24 h...
