Elevated Plasma Levels of Drebrin in Glaucoma Patients With Neurodegeneration.

Front Neurosci 2019 3;13:326. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

State Key Laboratory of Ophthalmology, Optometry and Visual Science, The Eye Hospital of Wenzhou Medical University, Wenzhou, China.

Glaucoma is an optic neuropathy characterized by progressive degeneration of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). Aberrations in several cytoskeletal proteins, such as tau have been implicated in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases, could be initiating factors in glaucoma progression and occurring prior to axon degeneration. Developmentally regulated brain protein (Drebrin or DBN1) is an evolutionarily conserved actin-binding protein playing a prominent role in neurons and is implicated in neurodegenerative diseases.

Ocular manifestations of cytomegalovirus in immunocompetent hosts.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2018 Nov;29(6):535-542

Francis I. Proctor Foundation, Department of Ophthalmology, University of California, San Francisco, USA.

Purpose Of Review: This review highlights recent studies that have increasingly implicated cytomegalovirus (CMV) as a significant cause of keratouveitis and retinitis in immunocompetent hosts.

Recent Findings: Molecular testing has identified that CMV infection is frequently present in cases of Posner-Schlossman and Fuchs, keratouveitis syndromes previously presumed to be idiopathic conditions. Ocular hypertension and endothelial cell loss are important complications of CMV keratouveitis and are likely mediated by viral invasion of the trabecular meshwork and corneal endothelium. Read More
