  1. 1. Studies into The Mechanisms of Neurodegeneration and Neuroprotection in Rd1 Mouse Retina

    Författare :Seifollah Azadi; Lund Oftalmologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; signaling pathway ; Ophtalmology; neurotrophic factors ; Oftalmologi; retina degeneration ;

    Sammanfattning : Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is a group of uncured retinal diseases with the world wide incidence of about 1/3500. In spite of the huge efforts in past years, the mechanisms underlying this type of hereditary blindness has not been elucidated and nor any effective treatment available. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Intracellular mechanisms in rd1 mouse retinal degeneration

    Författare :Leif Johnson; Lund Oftalmologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ophtalmology; Neuroprotection; Photoreceptor; Retinitis Pigmentosa; Oftalmologi;

    Sammanfattning : Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is an inherited disorder and the leading cause of visual impairment in the working age population. It is caused by a number of different genetic mutations, all of which cause the rod photoreceptors to degenerate. As the rods become few in numbers, the cones will also begin to die, resulting in total blindness. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Diabetic retinopathy in type 1 diabetes mellitus. A study on medical risk indicators and treatment outcome

    Författare :Monica Lövestam Adrian; Lund Oftalmologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ophtalmology; treatment outcome; risk-indicators; Type 1 diabetes; sight-threatening retinopathy; Oftalmologi;

    Sammanfattning : Diabetic retinopathy is a common complication to diabetes mellitus and is still a major cause of impaired vision in the Western world. The aim of the present study was to identify medical risk factors influencing the development and progression of retinopathy in type 1 diabetic patients, and to investigate the effects of laser treatment on visual acuity and glare.

  4. 4. The cell line RN33B transplanted to adult retina

    Författare :Anita Blixt Wojciechowski; Lund Oftalmologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oftalmologi; host glial response; Ophtalmology; differentiation; migration; proliferation; survival; immunosuppression; RN33B; brain-derived precursor cells; retinal degeneration; subretinal transplantation;

    Sammanfattning : The thesis describes the neural precursor cell line RN33B transplanted subretinally to adult healthy and young dystrophic rat retina. The cell line is generated from E12,5 rat raphe nucleus and transduced with the temperature sensitive mutant of the Simian Virus 40 (SV40) large T-antigen. LÄS MER

  5. 5. On visual impairment in Swedish children

    Författare :Jonas Blohmé; Lund Oftalmologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ophtalmology; Sweden; sociology; mortality; outcome; epidemiology; registration; childhood blindness; Visual impairment; children; Oftalmologi;

    Sammanfattning : Knowledge of the epidemiology of visual impairment in children forms one of the cornerstones in paediatric ophthalmology. To gain an overview of the situation in Sweden an epidemiological study was performed. Totally 2373 visually impaired children were found, giving an age-specific prevalence of 10,9/10 000. Childhood blindness (i. LÄS MER
