Cost-effectiveness of digital surveillance clinics with optical coherence tomography versus hospital eye service follow-up for patients with screen-positive maculopathy.

Eye (Lond) 2018 Nov 30. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

Gloucestershire Retinal Research Group, Cheltenham General Hospital, Cheltenham, UK.

Background: Annually 2.7 million individuals are offered screening for diabetic retinopathy (DR) in England. Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography (SD-OCT) has the potential to relieve pressure on NHS services by correctly identifying patients who are screen positive for maculopathy on two-dimensional photography without evidence of clinically significant macular oedema (CSMO), limiting the number of referrals to hospitals.

B cells in Graves' Orbitopathy: more than just a source of antibodies?

Eye (Lond) 2018 Dec 4. Epub 2018 Dec 4.

Graves' Orbitopathy Center, Endocrinology, Fondazione IRCCS Cà Granda, Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico and University of Milan, Milan, Italy.

B cells have multiple actions on different phases of an immune reaction, mainly resulting in B and T cell-interaction (help), production of cytokines, regulation of dendritic cells and downregulation of regulatory B cells. The effectiveness of B cell depletion therapy is probably due to blockade of the antigen-presenting function of B cells, occurring very early in the setting of autoimmune reactions. B cells undergo a maturation process from stem cells during which the CD 20 antigen, which is the target of rituximab (RTX), is expressed from the stage of pre-B cells to mature and memory B cells, but not on plasma cells.

Immune reconstitution after alemtuzumab therapy for multiple sclerosis triggering Graves' orbitopathy: a case series.

Eye (Lond) 2018 Nov 29. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

Thyroid Eye Disease Service, Department of Ophthalmology, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Cambridge, UK.

Alemtuzumab-a monoclonal antibody targeting the CD52 glycoprotein expressed by most mature leucocytes-effectively decreases relapse rate and disability progression in early, relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS). However, secondary autoimmune disorders complicate therapy in nearly 50% of treated patients, with Graves' disease being the most common. Rarely, thyroid eye disease (TED) ensues; only seven such cases have been reported. Read More

Implications for pharmaceutical companies and clinicians from the Bayer v NHS judgement: an increasing budgetary focus for both.

Eye (Lond) 2018 Nov 29. Epub 2018 Nov 29.

Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust, Heath Road, Ipswich, UK.

The English High Court recently dismissed the Bayer pharmaceutical company's challenge against a regional clinical commissioning group's policy allowing NHS Trusts to use a cheaper, but unlicensed, alternative to a sight preserving eye treatment. This makes sober reading for companies marketing "on-label" sales of medicines which are more expensive than off-label or unlicensed alternatives. Unsurprisingly, Bayer has sought to appeal the judgement. Read More

From axolotl to zebrafish: a comparative approach to the study of thyroid involvement in ocular development.

Authors:
David L Williams

Eye (Lond) 2018 Nov 27. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Department of Veterinary Medicine, University of Cambridge, Madingley Road, Cambridge, UK.

While discussion of interactions between the thyroid gland and the eye mostly focus on thyroid eye disease, the involvement of the thyroid and its hormones on development of the eye before birth is also an important perspective that should not be forgotten. Experimental models involving amphibians and fish are valuable both because the developing larvae are not constrained within the adult but can be observed and manipulated as they grow autonomously and also because they metamorphose with substantial morphological changes driven by the hypothalamo-pituitary-thyroid axis occurring as they develop from eggs to adults. In this paper we will first discuss changes seen in the axolotl, a naturally occurring neotonous hypothyroid salamander and the Xenopus toad a widely used laboratory amphibian. Read More

Acute primary angle closure-treatment strategies, evidences and economical considerations.

Eye (Lond) 2018 Nov 22. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAR, People's Republic of China.

Acute primary angle closure requires emergency management that involves a rapid lowering of the intraocular pressure and resolution of relative pupil block - the most common mechanism of angle closure. Emergency strategies for lowering intraocular pressure include medical treatment and argon laser peripheral iridoplasty. Anterior chamber paracentesis and diode laser transcleral cyclophotocoagulation may be considered in special situations. Read More

Serial TSH-receptor antibody levels to guide the management of thyroid eye disease: the impact of smoking, immunosuppression, radio-iodine, and thyroidectomy.

Eye (Lond) 2018 Nov 6. Epub 2018 Nov 6.

Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust, Ipswich, UK.

The Thyrotropin receptor antibody (TRAb) is the main driver of Graves' disease (GD) and its most common extra-thyroidal manifestation: thyroid eye disease (TED). Though key to diagnosis, it has not been used routinely as a marker of disease activity or to guide treatment. Here we demonstrate, through a retrospective review of 105 patients with TED, that serial TRAb levels vary with time, correlate with disease activity and are affected by smoking and endocrine control.

Evolution of thyroid eye disease decompression-dysthyroid optic neuropathy.

Eye (Lond) 2018 Nov 2. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Department of Ophthalmology, Columbia University, New York, New York, USA.

Orbital decompression surgery and medical therapy for thyroid eye disease (TED) have evolved over the past 150 years and afforded the opportunity to restore pre-disease appearance and visual function. This manuscript explores the past 150 years of surgical innovation for the treatment of TED. The "Age of Surgical Heroism" spans the time from 1888 to 1979 during which the pioneers of orbital decompression developed lateral orbitotomy, transcranial decompression, paranasal sinus decompression, and transantral decompression despite an incomplete understanding of the pathophysiology of both TED and a limited ability to non-invasively assess their patients.

The diagnostic accuracy of OCT angiography in naive and treated neovascular age-related macular degeneration: a review.

Eye (Lond) 2018 Oct 31. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Ophthalmology and Vision Science, Queens University of Belfast, Belfast, BT7 1NN, UK.

Optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) is a non-invasive retinal imaging innovation that has been gaining popularity for the evaluation of the retinal vasculature. Of clinical importance is its current use either as an alternative or in conjunction with conventional dye-based angiography in neovascular age-related macular degeneration. OCTA is not without limitations and these include image artefact, a relatively small field of view and failure of the segmentation algorithms, which can confound the interpretation of findings.
