CONCLUSIONS: The PODEye IOL was safe and stable. Glistenings grade 2 or more were not found with this blue light-filtering hydrophobic acrylic IOL. PCO occurrence was low at three years. PMID: 29934027 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: The two groups had similar clinical effectiveness in terms of unaided visual acuity, best corrected visual acuity, intraocular pressure and spherical aberration induction. The new Hole-ICL group (Group B) needed no preoperative laser peripheral iridotomies or intraoperative iridectomy. PMID: 29927184 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, we investigate mitochondrial energetics and mtDNA methylation in senescent cells, and evaluate the potential of humanin and MOTS-c as novel senolytics or SASP modulators that can alleviate symptoms of frailty and extend health span by targeting mitochondrial bioenergetics. Exercise versus the Hallmarks of Aging The paper I'll point out today walks through the ways in which exercise is known to beneficially affect the Hallmarks of Aging. The Hallmarks are a list of the significant causes of aging that I dis...

Conclusions: This study provided a comprehensive preoperative profile of inflammatory factors and their correlations with postoperative inflammatory responses in patients with congenital cataract. These factors may serve as potential biomarkers to predict the postoperative inflammatory response. These findings will also facilitate the development of anti-inflammatory medications in the perioperative period. PMID: 29930475 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: PAX6 is a highly conserved gene crucial for normal oculogenesis, and although mutations within the gene may cause an array of ocular developmental abnormalities, most are associated with aniridia and aniridia-related ocular defects. The observation that PAX6 aniridia phenotypes are largely associated with nonsense mutations and milder non-aniridia phenotypes with missense mutations suggested that there may be specific genotype-phenotype correlations for the gene. The R208W mutation in PAX6 identified in this family challenges this theory as it has previously been reported in three unrelated families and is ass...

Østergaard, Tinna Stevnsner Cockayne Syndrome (CS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder, which leads to neurodegeneration, growth failure and premature aging. Most of the cases are due to mutations in the ERCC6 gene, which encodes the protein CSB. CSB is involved in several functions including DNA repair and transcription. Here we describe two Danish brothers with Cockayne Syndrome. Both patients carried a novel splice site mutation...

In this study, we conducted comparative RNAseq experiments to detect genes associated with replicative senescence in two different human fibroblast cell lines and at different time points. We identified 841 and 900 genes (core senescence-associated genes) that are significantly up- and downregulated in senescent cells, respectively, in both cell lines. Our functional enrichment analysis showed that downregulated core genes are primarily involved in cell cycle processes while upregulated core gene enrichment indicated various lipid-related processes. We further demonstrated that downregulated genes are significantly ...

Normally macular holes are treatable, but the surgery inevitably causes cataracts, which permanently clouds vision. However, in this case in Greece, even that wasn't an option.
