(BMJ Publishing Group - http://bjo.bmjjournals.com/, 2000-02)
AIMS: To examine the hypothesis that apoptosis of infiltrating cells contributes to spontaneous resolution of uveitis in clinically relevant rodent models. METHODS: Experimental melanin induced uveitis (EMIU) was induced ...
Comparison of autologous serum eye drops with conventional therapy in a randomised controlled crossover trial for ocular surface disease
(BMJ Publishing Group - http://bjo.bmjjournals.com/, 2004-05)

In vitro adenovirus mediated gene transfer to the human cornea
(BMJ Publishing Group - http://bjo.bmjjournals.com/, 2005-06)
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Replication deficient adenovirus is an efficient vector for gene transfer to the cornea. The aim was to optimise the transduction of human corneal endothelium with adenoviral vectors and to measure transgene ...

Corneal graft rejection occurs despite Fas ligand expression and apoptosis of infiltrating cells
(BMJ Publishing Group - http://bjo.bmjjournals.com/, 2005-05)
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Constitutive expression of Fas ligand (CD95L) protects the eye against cell mediated immune responses by inducing apoptosis in infiltrating Fas bearing T cells. This study was designed to examine Fas ligand ...
Late onset post-keratoplasty astigmatism in patients with keratoconus
(BMJ Publishing Group - http://bjo.bmjjournals.com/, 2004-03)
AIM: 10 eyes of 10 patients are reported where progression of keratoconus in the host cornea occurred more than 10 years after penetrating keratoplasty with resultant increase in astigmatism. The technique and results of ...
A Critical Flicker Fusion (CFF) test of potential vision [Post print]
Purpose: To continue developing a potential vision test based on the critical flicker fusion (CFF) phenomenon by using a brighter stimulus and optimizing its size. Setting: The Flinders Eye Centre of the Flinders Medical ...

(BMJ Publishing Group - http://bjo.bmjjournals.com/, 2001-05)
BACKGROUND/AIMS: Limbal allotransplantation is increasingly being used for ocular surface repair in patients with limbal stem cell dysfunction. However, it is uncertain whether donor cells survive long term on the ocular ...
