[Uveal Melanoma Cell Under Oxidative Stress - Influence of VEGF and VEGF-Inhibitors].
Conclusion Considering that oxidative stress is the mode of action for ionizing radiation to induce cell death, a protective effect of bevacizumab on uveal melanoma cells against oxidative stress is worrisome and argues against the use of VEGF in uveal melanoma.

[Infection-associated Acute Posterior Multifocal Placoid Pigment Epitheliopathy].
Authors: Jordan F, Voigt U, Dawczynski J, Augsten R, Meller D Abstract Acute posterior multifocal placoid pigment epitheliopathy (APMPPE) is a rare inflammatory chorioretinopathy, which mainly affects young light-skinned, myopic adults between 20 and 30 years of age. The exact aetiology of APMPPE is unknown. Some patients report a viral or flu-like illness preceding the onset of APMPPE symptoms. This condition is usually bilateral and self-limiting with a good overall prognosis. Visual loss is sudden, but usually temporary. Relapses are very rare. Foveal involvement may lead to a worse visual prognosis. There is no...

[Next-Generation Sequencing: A Quantum Leap in Ophthalmology Research and Diagnostics].
Authors: Bolz HJ Abstract Many eye diseases have a genetic basis, and most can be caused by mutations in many different genes (extensive genetic heterogeneity). The retinal dystrophies are a good example: More than 200 genes have been identified for the isolated forms (Leber's congenital amaurosis, retinitis pigmentosa, cone-rod dystrophy, congenital stationary night blindness), and for syndromes that comprise additional dysfunctions or malformations of extraocular tissues and organs. Selecting genes for diagnostic testing has been difficult, and their analysis with the hitherto predominant DNA sequencing method (S...

[Potential of fMRI for the Functional Assessment of the Pathological Visual System].
Authors: Hoffmann MB, Thieme H, Ahmadi K Abstract Current developments in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the human visual system have generated a set of powerful approaches that are of great promise for modern ophthalmology. These make it possible to perform an objective spatially resolved test of visual function in patients with strong visual impairment and even to investigate the functional organisation of the visual cortex in the blind. As a consequence, they open a broad field of applications for functional assessment in ophthalmology and provide fundamental insights into the interplay of patho...

[Potential of Adaptive Optics for the Diagnostic Evaluation of Hereditary Retinal Diseases].
Authors: Reiniger JL, Domdei N, Pfau M, Müller PL, Holz FG, Harmening WM Abstract The use of adaptive optics in ophthalmoscopy is a breakthrough technological achievement. With AO ophthalmoscopes, the microscopic retinal structure can be visualised non-invasively and on a cellular level, allowing for cellular scale imaging of the retinal nerve fibre layer, the smallest retinal capillaries, rod and cone photoreceptors, and the retinal pigment epithelium mosaic in the living subject. Regarding the diagnostic evaluation of retinal diseases, the current research focuses on monogenetic retinal diseases, which - whe...

[Gene Replacement Therapy for Inherited Retinal Dystrophies].
Authors: Mühlfriedel R, Sothilingam V, Tanimoto N, Seeliger MW Abstract Characteristics of inherited retinal dystrophies include deficiencies in light perception and nervous conduction within the retina, leading to reduced vision or even blindness. In this context, the loss of function of photoreceptor-specific genes causes a variety of clinically and aetiologically distinct syndromes - each of them belonging to the group of rare diseases. With a prevalence of 1 in 2500, however, inherited retinal diseases are clinically significant and important - especially since these diseases lead to restrictions of a pati...

Authors: Borsch O, Santos-Ferreira T, Ader M Abstract Vision impairment and blindness due to photoreceptor loss represents one of the major causes for disability in industrialized societies. Whereas rod photoreceptors allow vision under dim light conditions, cone photoreceptors provide high-acuity vision in daylight conditions and color detection. Several therapeutic strategies are currently developed to repair vision loss, including cell-based interventions. Within the last decade, major progress regarding the replacement of photoreceptors by transplantation has been made in pre-clinical animal models. This includ...

Conclusions Patients with CRB1-mutations presented with a severe phenotype with severely reduced visual acuity from birth. Missense mutations with predicted residual function of the gene product were associated with moderate expression of the disease. Severe and progressive restriction of visual fields occurred in the first decade of life. The reduced retinal stratification indicates a general loss of structural integrity of the retinal layers.

Well-defined funduscopic criteria are available, which can already lead to a high degree of diagnostic certainty. Additional technical examinations can be used to exclude possible differential diagnoses. In cases where no clear diagnosis can be established, it is possible to take a biopsy or to watch and wait in order to observe possible growth. Whenever the diagnosis of a choroidal melanoma is established, cancer staging h...

Authors: Sandner D Abstract Choroidal neovascularisation (CNV) in the context of exsudative age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) can be divided into type 1 (occult) and type 2 (classical) membranes. Retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP) or polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) are "rare subtypes" of chorioretinal neovascularisation and are distinguished by their distinct morphology and the sometimes worse response to therapy. Chorioretinal anastomosis, severe exsudates with serosanguinous pigment epithelial detachment and, in PCV, orange-red lesions in the papillomacular bundle can be diagnostic. I...

Channelrhodopsin, the most famous example, is an unselective cation channel, which opens when exposed to blue light, thus mediating the depolarisation of the expressing cell. Along with other light-sensitive proteins such as the chloride pump eNpHR, which mediates light-activated hyperpolarisation, the optogenetic toolset offers a wide range of non-invasive single cell manipulations.

However, there are more and more reports indicating that multiple injections may lead to a long-term increase in intraocular pressure. This may also be the case in patients without a glaucoma histo...
