Identification of a novel oligomerization disrupting mutation in CRYAA associated with congenital cataract in a South Australian family
Congenital cataract is a heterogeneous disorder causing severe visual impairment in affected children. We screened four South Australian families with autosomal dominant congenital cataract for mutations in 10 crystallin ...
Intercellular adhesion molecule 1 mediates migration of Th1 and Th17 cells across human retinal vascular endothelium
(Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, 2013)
Purpose. Autoimmune inflammation of the retina causes vision loss in the majority of affected individuals. Th1 or Th17 cells initiate the disease on trafficking from the circulation into the eye across the retinal vascular ...
Australian and New Zealand Registry of Advanced Glaucoma: methodology and recruitment
Glaucoma is a sight-threatening disease affecting 3% of the population over the age of 50. Glaucoma is treatable, and severe vision loss can usually be prevented if diagnosis is made at an early stage. Genetic factors play ...
A Comparison of Lamellar and Penetrating Keratoplasty Outcomes: A Registry Study
Novel therapeutic approaches for corneal disease
(Discovery Medicine, 2013-05-24)
Congenital and acquired corneal opacities, and diseases of the ocular surface, are blinding conditions that impose physical, psychological, and financial constraints upon the sufferer. In the past, corneal and corneal ...
Common variants near ABCA1, AFAP1 and GMDS confer risk of primary open-angle glaucoma
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014-10)
Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is a major cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. We performed a genome-wide association study in an Australian discovery cohort comprising 1,155 cases with advanced POAG and 1,992 ...
Higher prevalence of Myocilin mutations in advanced glaucoma in comparison with less advanced disease in an Australasian disease registry
The prevalence of Myocilin mutations in glaucoma cases with severe visual field loss is significantly greater than in nonadvanced glaucoma patients. Myocilin screening in phenotypically selected cases can have a much higher ...
Occurrence of CYP1B1 Mutations in Juvenile Open-Angle Glaucoma With Advanced Visual Field Loss
(American Medical Association, 2015-07)
Copy Number Variations of TBK1 in Australian Patients With Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma
PURPOSE To investigate the presence of TBK1 copy number variations in a large, well-characterized Australian cohort of patients with glaucoma comprising both normal-tension glaucoma and high-tension glaucoma cases. DESIGN A ...
