Predictors of Visual Outcome in Eyes with Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration: A New Stratified Approach Using Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography

Antonio Polito, Emilia Maggio, Antonio Peroglio Deiro, Massimo Guerriero and Grazia Pertile

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: November 08, 2016

We reviewed a consecutive series of 70 patients after three monthly intravitreal ranibizumab treatments for primary neovascular AMD. Age, sex, baseline vision, choroidal neovascularization type as well as OCT characteristics were correlated to final vision. On OCT, baseline integrity of the fovea was studied using foveal thickness (FTH), external limiting membrane (ELM) and ellipsoid zone as hallmarks. Masked readers graded images. Multivariate analyses and stepwise regressions were performed to...

Next Generation Artificial Eyes with Dynamic Iris

Jerome Lapointe, Jean-Sebastien Boisvert and Raman Kashyap

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: October 01, 2016

The eye is a vital organ for vision and an important element of facial expression, but also as the first point of contact between people. The loss of an eye has a far-reaching impact on an individual's psyche. Additionally, it affects a patient's professional and social life. Cosmetic rehabilitation with custom made ocular prostheses gives such individuals social and professional acceptance and mitigates problems of re-integration in society. For centuries, ocularists and eye surgeons have worke...

Successful Treatment of Chronic Hepatitis C using Pegylated Interferon and Ribavirin in a Patient with Sheehan's Syndrome

Rong Xu, Yong-hong Zhang and Xu Yang

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: September 29, 2016

A 50-year-old female with Sheehan's syndrome was treated for chronic hepatitis C using pegylated interferon-α2b and ribavirin. The patient's HCV-RNA status was negative by the fourth week and remained undetectable until the completion of treatment without signs that Sheehan's syndrome had been exaggerated.

Ahmed A Abd-Rabou

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: September 27, 2016

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) has few recorded outputs regarding the prevalence of the human immunodeficiency viral (HIV) infections associated with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). When we went through the HIV/AIDS in MENA, we found a hole in the scientific publications. Attention towards this issue progressed recently though, with few pre-clinical studies conducted. In the current review, we collected comprehensive data of HIV epidemiology in MENA and discussed the main ch...

Screening for Urethral, Rectal and Pharyngeal Gonorrhea & Chlamydia among Asymptomatic Male Adolescents and Young Men who have Sex with Men

Faiza Ali, Gaurav N Kaushik, Nicole D Carr, Ericka Hayes and Katie L Plax

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: November 08, 2016

Urban young men (13-25 years old) who have sex with men (YMSM) are at high risk for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations are to screen asymptomatic MSM for Chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neiserria gonorrheae (GC) based on sexual history. However, this approach misses asymptomatic non-genital infections in men who do not disclose or are not asked about sexual behavior. Our study aimed to determine prevalence of asymptomatic phary...
