BACKGROUND: Chronic visual loss is a disabling feature in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). It was recently shown that MD1003 (high-dose pharmaceutical-grade biotin or hdPB) may improve disability in patients with progressive MS. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate whether MD1003 improves vision compared with placebo in MS patients with chronic visual loss. METHODS: The MS-ON was a 6-month, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study with a 6-month open-label extension phase...

Viral gene delivery is showing great promise for treating retinal disease. Although subretinal vector delivery has mainly been used to date, intravitreal delivery has potential advantages if low retinal transduction efficiency can be overcome. To this end, we investigated the effects of co-injection of glycosaminoglycan-degrading enzymes, singly or in combination, with AAV2 as a method of increasing retinal transduction. Experiments using healthy mice demonstrated that these enzymes enhance retinal transduction...

Axon degeneration can arise from metabolic stress, potentially a result of mitochondrial dysfunction or lack of appropriate substrate input. In this study, we investigated whether the metabolic vulnerability observed during optic neuropathy in the DBA/2J (D2) model of glaucoma is due to dysfunctional mitochondria or impaired substrate delivery to axons, the latter based on our observation of significantly decreased glucose and monocarboxylate transporters in D2 optic nerve (ON), human ON, and mice subjected to acute glaucoma injury...

There is concern that degradation of vision as a result of space flight may compromise both mission goals and long-term quality of life after space travel. The visual disturbances may be due to a combination of intracerebral pressure changes and exposure to ionizing radiation. The retina and the retinal vasculature play important roles in vision, yet have not been studied extensively in relationship to space travel and space radiation. The goal of the current study was to characterize oxidative damage and apoptosis in retinal endothelial cells after whole-body gamma-ray, proton and oxygen (16 O) ion radiation exposure at 0...

Background and purpose: Acute central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) is a serious ophthalmologic emergency that may result in monocular blindness. To date, studies evaluating intra-arterial thrombolysis (IAT) have not shown a definitive clinical benefit. We have conducted a systematic review with a meta-analysis to effectively evaluate this treatment option. Methods: A systematic literature search was focused on studies containing five or more patients undergoing IAT that included a control group treated with standard therapy...

BACKGROUND: In clinical practice, oxygen is generally administered to patients with the intention of increasing oxygen delivery. Supplemental oxygen may, however, cause arterial hyperoxia, which is associated with hemodynamic alterations. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature to determine the effect of hyperoxia on central hemodynamics and oxygen delivery in healthy volunteers and cardiovascular-compromised patients. METHODS: PubMed and EMBASE were searched up to March 2017...

PURPOSE: To present a series of idiopathic paracentral acute middle maculopathy (PAMM) and acute macular neuroretinopathy (AMN) cases and to compare the microvascular retinal status of PAMM/AMN eyes with those of healthy individuals. METHODS: Six eyes with PAMM and two eyes with AMN in a total of six patients were included in this study. Multimodal retinal imaging, including optical coherence tomography angiography, was performed in all patients. The vessel density of the superficial capillary plexus and deep capillary plexus, as well as the area, circularity, and angle of the superficial foveal avascular zone (FAZ) were measured and compared with the same parameters in age-matched healthy individuals...

BACKGROUND: The optic nerve is a frequent site for involvement in multiple sclerosis (MS). Optical coherence tomography (OCT) detects thinning of the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) in eyes of patients with MS and in those meeting criteria for clinically or radiologically isolated demyelinating syndromes. Current international diagnostic criteria for MS do not include the optic nerve as an imaging lesion site despite the high prevalence of acute optic neuritis (ON), or occult optic neuropathy, among early MS and clinically isolated syndrome patients; as well as most MS patients over the course of the disease...

We present a case in which a large, bullous, predominantly inferior, serous retinal detachment developed acutely after the Valsalva manoeuvre (from a coughing fit) in an eye with morning glory disc anomaly. We postulate that a rapid alteration in intracranial pressure was transmitted through the cavitary disc defect. This allowed a sudden influx of cerebrospinal fluid and/or liquefied vitreous into the subretinal space. This previously unreported case provides important evidence for the role of intracranial pressure fluctuations in the pathogenesis of macular schisis and neurosensory detachment secondary to optic disc cavitations...

SIGNIFICANCE: Clinical findings in occult branch retinal artery occlusion (BRAO) can mimic those of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). Because management of these conditions substantially differs, accurate diagnosis is crucial. Our comparative analysis indicates that specific macular thickness variables reliably differentiate these conditions and that macular scanning may enhance routine glaucoma evaluation. PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to identify clinical factors that reliably and efficiently identify occult BRAO masquerading as POAG...

Blood-brain barrier (BBB) permeability in type 2 diabetic patients has been previously shown to be altered in certain brain regions such as the basal ganglia and the hippocampus. Because of the histological and functional similarities between the BBB) and the blood-retinal barrier (BRB), we aimed to investigate how the permeability of both barriers predicts visual outcome. We included 2 control groups (acute unilateral stroke patients, n = 9; type 2 diabetics without BRB leakage n = 10) and a case study group of type 2 diabetics with established BRB leakage (n = 17)...

BACKGROUND: Thrombocytopenia is a life-threatening complication in patients with advanced myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). In this study (ASPIRE), we aimed to assess eltrombopag, an oral thrombopoietin receptor agonist, for thrombocytopenia (grade 4) treatment in adult patients with advanced MDS or AML. METHODS: ASPIRE consisted of an open-label, double-blind phase for 8 weeks and a randomised, double-blind phase (parts 1 and 2, reported here) for 12 weeks, and an open-label extension (part 3)...

PURPOSE: To propose a new treatment paradigm for chemical burns to the eye - in the acute and chronic phases. METHODS: Recent laboratory and clinical data on the biology and treatment of chemical burns are analyzed. RESULTS: Corneal blindness from chemical burns can now be successfully treated with a keratoprosthesis, on immediate and intermediate bases. Long term outcomes, however, are hampered by early retinal damage causing glaucoma. New data suggest that rapid diffusion of inflammatory cytokines posteriorly (TNF-α, etc) can severely damage the ganglion cells...

Songtao Wang, Dandan Gu, Peng Zhang, Jing Chen, Yan Li, Honglei Xiao, Guomin Zhou
Excitotoxicity plays an important role in neuronal loss in glaucoma. Previous studies indicate melanopsin-expressing intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) are more injury-resistant. However, whether melanopsin-expressing ipRGCs are resistant to N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) induced excitotoxicity is not well understood. In the present study, we investigated the effects of NMDA-induced excitotoxicity in conventional retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) and melanopsin-expressing ipRGCs in adult mice...
