    Aim: To detect early glaucoma, Porciatti and Ventura suggested in 2004 the pattern electroretinogram (PERG) protocol 'PERGLA' with the following features: (1) skin electrodes, (2) steady-state reversal (15 rps) of horizontal 1.6 cpd gratings and (3) Fourier-based analysis. We compared this to...

    The unconventional myosin VI, a member of the actin-based motor protein family of myosins, is expressed in the retina. Its deletion was previously shown to reduce amplitudes of the a- and b-waves of the electroretinogram. Analyzing wild-type and myosin VI-deficient Snell's Waltzer mice in more...

  • Bjerrum's sign.  // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary;2005, p254 

    A definition of the medical term "Bjerrum's sign" is presented. Bjerrum's sign is a sickle- or comet-shaped blind spot usually found in the central zone of the visual field. It is seen in glaucoma patients. The definition is from the "Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary," published by F. A....

    Epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCG) is a powerful antioxidant with suggested neuroprotective action. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of short-term supplementation of EGCG on inner retinal function in ocular hypertension (OHT) and open-angle glaucoma (OAG). Eighteen OHT and 18 OAG...
