Authors: Saito Y, Nakamura K, Ito H Abstract The number of permanent pacemaker implantations has been increasing due to the aging of populations worldwide and the increase in the numbers of patients with heart diseases. Commercially available mechanical pacemakers are very useful but still have some problems including short battery life, a risk of infection, the absence of physiological autonomic responsiveness, metal allergy, and electronic interference. A biological pacemaker may resolve these problems and regenerate the cardiac pacemaker. Cell-based therapy and gene therapy have been addressed with the goal of s...

Publication date: Available online 23 February 2018 Source:Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology Author(s): Rod A. Herman, Gregory S. Ladics The value of criteria used in the weight-of-evidence assessment of allergenic risk of genetically modified (GM) crops has been debated. This debate may originate, in part, from not specifying if the criteria are intended to contribute to the assessment of sensitization risk or elicitation risk. Here, this distinction is explicitly discussed in the context of exposure and hazard. GM crops with structural relationships with known allergens or sourced from an organism known to cause al...

Purpose: To analyze the effects of a dexamethasone intravitreal implant (DEX; Ozurdex 700 μg; Allergan) administered immediately after cataract surgery in diabetic patients. Methods: This prospective, single-arm, open label study (NCT01748487 at ClinicalTrials.gov) involved Type 2 diabetic patients with at least mild diabetic retinopathy (DR) who underwent cataract surgery and DEX insertion after phacoemulsification, and intraocular lens implantation were enrolled. Best-corrected visual acuity and central retinal thickness (CRT) measured by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography were recorded at 1 week preope...
