Molecular topology was used to develop a mathematical model capable of classifying compounds according to antimicrobial activity against methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Topological indices were used as structural descriptors and their relation to antimicrobial activity was determined by using linear discriminant analysis. This topological model establishes new structure activity relationships which show that the presence of cyclopropyl, chlorine and ramification pairs at a distance of two bonds favor this activity, while the presence of tertiary amines decreases it...

PURPOSE: Endoscopic management of upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) is associated with higher recurrences, which could be reduced by application of topical therapy. Adjuvant induction Bacillus Calmette-Guerin has shown inferior outcomes for UTUC compared to bladder cancer, and maintenance regimens for UTUC are unexplored. We report on the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of Mitomycin C (MMC) induction and maintenance adjuvant topical therapy for UTUC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with UTUC who received adjuvant topical therapy after complete endoscopic control of Ta/T1 tumors were retrospectively reviewed...

With any refractive correction, including Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE), there may be a residual refractive error that requires a retreatment. Here, we investigated the tissue responses following various retreatment procedures in a rabbit model of SMILE. All rabbits underwent a -6.00D correction with SMILE. Two weeks later, they underwent -1.00D enhancement by: (i) VisuMax Circle, followed by excimer ablation (S+C); (ii) secondary SMILE anterior to the primary procedure (S+SE); or (iii) surface ablation (S+P), and were examined for 28 days...

BACKGROUND: Chronic use of intraocular pressure-lowering medications is associated with ocular surface disease (OSD). In this study, we assess the incidence of topical lubricant use as a surrogate marker for underlying OSD, in medically and surgically treated glaucoma patients. METHODS: Retrospective chart review was performed for newly diagnosed glaucoma patients who were started on topical medications in 2007 and followed up over a 5-year period. Primary outcome measure was the incidence of topical lubricant use in these patients and a subset of these patients who required glaucoma or cataract surgery during follow-up...
