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.
Riboflavin delivery methods advance as techniques evolveTechniques for performing corneal collagen crosslink (CXL) are being evaluated and adapted, and at the same time, new applications are being developed.
Effective diagnostic methods for IPF
Effective diagnostic methods for IPFHigh-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) scans have quickly become the most effective tool for firmly diagnosing idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
Study: CXL for corneal ectasia requires oxygen within tissueCXL protocols using high irradiance/short irradiation time or leaving the epithelium on may limit the opportunity for adequate oxygen replenishment within the cornea, resulting in unsatisfactory outcomes.
