In vivo confocal microscopy ineffective for Fusarium and Aspergillus differentiationIt’s very hard to tell the difference between Fusarium and Aspergillus species with in vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM) of fungal keratitis, researchers say.
Photoactivation holds promise for keratitis treatment
Photoactivation holds promise for keratitis treatmentThe same photoactivation process used in collagen cross-linking for keratoconus can kill bacteria without the need for the oxygen responsible for the biomechanical effects, potentially pointing toward better treatments for keratitis, according to Olivier Richoz, MD, PhD.
