Publication date: Available online 21 February 2018 Source:European Polymer Journal Author(s): Natascha Riehle, Sibylle Thude, Tobias Götz, Andreas Kandelbauer, Solon Thanos, Günter E.M. Tovar, Günter Lorenz Soft thermoplastic polysiloxane-urea-elastomers (PSUs) were prepared for the application as a biomaterial to replace the human natural lens after cataract surgery. PSUs were synthesized from amino-terminated polydimethylsiloxanes (PDMS), 4,4’–Methylenebis(cyclohexylisocyanate) (H12MDI) and 1,3–Bis(3-aminopropyl)-1,1,3,3–tetramethyldisiloxane (APTMDS) by a two-step polyaddition ro...

Abstract A skeleton was discovered during the excavation of fortifications at Hisn al‐Bab in southern Egypt. It was not found in a grave but was lying on its back in an outspread position at the foot of the collapsed northern wall of the fort, covered by wall debris. The individual was probably male and about 25 to 30 years old. The osteological evidence strongly suggests that the man met his death through interpersonal violence. A deep kerf was identified on the medial shaft of his left femur, caused perimortem by a large bladed weapon. In addition, fractures of the facial bones, the skull base, and the right ribs occur...

CONCLUSIONS: The evidence from RCTs undertaken to date does not support vision screening for older people living independently in a community setting, whether in isolation or as part of a multi-component screening package. This is true for screening programmes involving questions about visual problems, or direct measurements of visual acuity.The most likely reason for this negative review is that the populations within the trials often did not take up the offered intervention as a result of the vision screening and large proportions of those who did not have vision screening appeared to seek their own intervention. Also, t...

AbstractGJA8 encodes connexin 50 (Cx50), a transmembrane protein involved in the formation of lens gap junctions.GJA8 mutations have been linked to early onset cataracts in humans and animal models. In mice, missense mutations and homozygousGja8 deletions lead to smaller lenses and microphthalmia in addition to cataract, suggesting thatGja8 may play a role in both lens development and ocular growth. Following screening ofGJA8 in a cohort of 426 individuals with severe congenital eye anomalies, primarily anophthalmia, microphthalmia and coloboma, we identified four known [p.(Thr39Arg), p.(Trp45Leu), p.(Asp51Asn), and p.(Gly...
