Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2019 Feb 13. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Department of Ophthalmology, University Hospitals UZ Leuven, Leuven, Belgium.

Purpose: To evaluate the effectiveness of an ab interno subconjunctival gelatin implant as primary surgical intervention in reducing intraocular pressure (IOP) and IOP-lowering medication count in medically uncontrolled moderate primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG).

Intraocular pressure-lowering effects of imidazo[1,2-a]- and pyrimido[1,2-a]benzimidazole compounds in rats with dexamethasone-induced ocular hypertension.

Eur J Pharmacol 2019 Feb 1. Epub 2019 Feb 1.

International Medical University, IMU Clinical School, Seremban, Malaysia.

Ocular hypertension is believed to be involved in the etiology of primary open-angle glaucoma. Although many pharmaceutical agents have been shown to be effective for the reduction of intraocular pressure (IOP), a significant opportunity to improve glaucoma treatments remains. Thus, the aims of the present study were: (1) to evaluate the IOP-lowering effect of four compounds RU-551, RU-555, RU-839 (pyrimido[1,2-a]benzimidazole), and RU-615 (imidazo[1,2-a]benzimidazole) on steroid-induced ocular hypertension in rats after single drop and chronic applications; and (2) to test in silico and in vitro conventional rho-associated kinase (ROCK) inhibitory activity of the selected compound.

Department of Family Medicine, Research Institute of Convergence of Biomedical Science and Technology, Pusan National University Yangsan Hospital, Yangsan 626-780, Korea,

Background: High intraocular pressure (IOP) is well established as the most significant risk factor for both the development and progression of primary open-angle glaucoma. Elevated IOP is more frequently seen in the presence of metabolic disturbances that are associated with the components of metabolic syndrome (MetS). The aim of this study was to investigate the association between ocular hypertension and MetS. Read More

Progressive retinal ganglion cell loss in primary open-angle glaucoma is associated with temperature circadian rhythm phase delay and compromised sleep.

Chronobiol Int 2019 Jan 21:1-14. Epub 2019 Jan 21.

g Institute of Biology/Zoology , Martin Luther University , Halle-Wittenberg , Germany.

Advanced primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is characterized by progressive retinal ganglion cell complex (RGCC) damage that may cause subsequent disruption of the circadian rhythms. Therefore, we evaluated circadian body temperature (BT) rhythm and sleep characteristics of 115 individuals (38 men and 77 women) diagnosed with POAG. GLV (global loss volume; %), a measure of RGCC damage, was estimated by high-definition optical coherence tomography, and RGC functional ability was assessed by pattern electroretinogram amplitude (PERGA).

Acta Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 17. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

Department of Ophthalmology, Chungnam National University Hospital, Deajeon, Korea.

Purpose: To assess influence of the location of visual field (VF) loss on vision-related quality of life (VRQOL) in patients with glaucoma.

Methods: We included 826 patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) enrolled in the prospectively designed Life Quality of Glaucoma Patients Who Underwent Treatment (LIGHT) study organized by the Korean Glaucoma Society.

The association of mitochondrial DNA haplogroups with POAG in African Americans.

Exp Eye Res 2019 Jan 15;181:85-89. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Scheie Eye Institute, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA. Electronic address:

Mitochondrial dysfunction has been implicated in the pathogenesis of primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). However, the potential significance of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroups to POAG has not been evaluated in the overaffected African American population. To investigate the association of mtDNA haplogroups with POAG and its phenotypic characteristics, genotyping data from 4081 African American subjects (1919 cases and 2162 controls) was analyzed using 1293 positions on mtDNA.

Relationship between primary open angle glaucoma and blood pressure.

Acta Cardiol 2019 Jan 16:1-5. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

a Cardiology Department , Baskent University Faculty of Medicine , Ankara , Turkey.

Background: Glaucoma is commonly defined as high intra ocular pressure (≥21 mmHg) with optic neuropathy characterised by progressive loss of retinal ganglion cells which is associated with characteristic structural damage to the optic nerve and visual field loss. There are several studies investigating relation between primary open angle glaucoma (POAG) and both systemic hypertension and especially night hypotension. Our aim was to compare 24-h ambulatory blood pressure variability of patients with glaucoma followed-up in the eye outpatient clinic with that of patients free of glaucoma. Read More

Is primary open-angle glaucoma an ocular manifestation of systemic disease?

Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 15. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Glaucoma Research Center, Wills Eye Hospital, 840 Walnut Street, Suite 1140, Philadelphia, PA, 19107, USA.

Primary open-angle glaucoma is currently characterized by a pattern of progressive retinal ganglion cell loss that stems from a complex underlying pathophysiology that remains poorly elucidated. The roles of blood flow and intraocular pressure (IOP) in glaucoma pathogenesis have been extensively studied. Further, it has been established that lowering IOP can slow the progression of glaucoma.

Non-physician grader reliability in measuring morphological features of the optic nerve head in stereo digital images.

Eye (Lond) 2019 Jan 11. Epub 2019 Jan 11.

Scheie Eye Institute, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Objective: To introduce a new method of grading optic nerve stereo disc photographs and evaluate reproducibility of assessments by non-physician graders in a reading center.

Methods: Three non-physician graders, experienced in grading features of the retina but not the optic nerve head (ONH), were trained by glaucoma specialists to assess digital stereo color images of the ONH. These graders assessed a total of 2554 digital stereo disc images from glaucoma cases and controls participating in the Primary Open-Angle African American Glaucoma Genetics (POAAGG) study by outlining the optic cup and disc.
