They increase in diseases such as diabetes and sepsis. Herein we propose a serum albumin-fatty acid saturation test. •We based our test on three methodologies: isoelectric focusing (IF) of human plasma albumin, staining proteins after i...

Same-eye comparison of pupillary dilation with an intraoperative standardized intracameral combination of mydriatics (Mydrane®) versus a preoperative ophthalmic (Mydriasert®) in standard cataract surgery in non-diabetic patients. J Fr Ophtalmol. 2019 Aug 19;: Authors: de Faria A, Giorgi R, Cohen Salmon M, Bonnel S, Holweck G, Le Corre A, Chazalon E Abstract INTRODUCTION: Cataract surgery is the most commonly performed surgery in the world, and its success depends in part on the quality of mydriasis. PURPOSE: To compare, for the same eye, the pupillary dilation obtained with Mydrane® (st...

CONCLUSION: High Galectin-3, MMP-9, and ST-2 are independently influenced to a certain degree by demographic, clinical and laboratory characteristics. However, no single characteristic was found to be commonly associated with all of the three biomarkers. PMID: 31438834 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Al Shidhani KSH, Al Maani AS, Al Jabri ATJ Abstract Subcutaneous fat necrosis of newborn is a form of panniculitis that often occurs in term and post-term neonate with predisposing risk factors such as perinatal asphyxia and maternal gestational diabetes. A cutaneous involvement may be associated with metabolic complications such as hypoglycemia, hypercalcemia and hypertriglyceridemia. Here, we present a case of Subcutaneous fat necrosis of newborn with bilateral symmetrical involvement of both axillas in a perinatal asphyxiated newborn that has not been previously described in the literature. In this case...

Purpose: Among eyes with proliferative diabetic retinopathy, identify whether baseline characteristics impact the benefit of ranibizumab over panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) in DRCR.net Protocol S. Methods: Participants had proliferative diabetic retinopathy, visual acuity of 20/320 or better, and no previous PRP. Eyes were randomized to PRP or intravitreous 0.5-mg ranibizumab. Results: Ranibizumab was superior to PRP for change in visual acuity and development of vision-impairing central-involved diabetic macular edema over 2 years (P

Purpose: To quantify retinal microvascular alterations using optical coherence tomography angiography in diabetic patients, and to evaluate the accuracy of decreased vessel density (VD) in predicting early diabetic retinopathy (DR). Methods: One hundred and two eyes of 51 diabetic patients and 92 eyes of 46 individuals without diabetes were examined. Duration of diabetes, insulin therapy, blood pressure, HbA1C, dyslipidemia, axial length, and the presence of DR were recorded. Retinal VD was measured using optical coherence tomography angiography. The effect of risk factors on VD and on DR was assessed using multivaria...
