Immunological and pathological investigations in equine experimental uveitis.

18. Oktober 2016

Eysines – mechentel news – The pathogenic mechanism of equine recurrent uveitis (ERU) is still poorly defined and many variations between experimentalanimal models and spontaneous disease exist. The aim of our study was to investigate if Th17 cell-mediated response plays role in the pathogenesis of the used experimentalmodel in horses and to reveal its pathological findings. Experimental uveitis was induced in 6 healthy horses. The

[High resolution imaging of the equine cornea using the DUB®-SkinScanner v3.9].

18. Oktober 2016

Berlin – mechentel news – The aim was to describe the use of the DUB®-SkinScanner v3.9 (taberna pro medicum GmbH, Lueneburg, Germany) for the examination of the equine cornea. Using the DUB®-SkinScanner v3.9 various pathological corneal conditions were pictured in the A- and B-mode at a frequency of 22 and/or 50 MHz in nine eyes of eight horses. Scans were obtained from standing horses

Degree of corneal anaesthesia after topical application of 0.4% oxybuprocaine hydrochloride and 0.5%proparacaine hydrochloride ophthalmic solution in clinically normal cattle.

18. Oktober 2016

St Kitts – mechentel news – The use of corneal anaesthesia is necessary for a range of clinical purposes. Therefore, we assessed and compared the efficacy of corneal anaesthesia after application of 0.4% oxybuprocaine hydrochloride and 0.5% proparacaine hydrochloride ophthalmic solution inclinically normal cattle.The 24 clinically normal cows were allocated into two groups. Cows in group 1 (n = 12) received 0.2 mL of 0.4% oxybuprocainehydrochloride with fluorescein ophthalmic solution in one eye and 0.2 mL of sterile saline (0.9% NaCl) with fluorescein in the contralateral eye (control). Group 2

Antioxidant supplementation increases retinal responses and decreases refractive error changes in dogs.

18. Oktober 2016

St Louis – mechentel news – The objective of the study was to examine whether a nutritional antioxidant supplementation could improve visual function in healthy dogs as measured by electroretinography (ERG) and autorefraction. A total of twelve Beagles, 6 to 8 years of age, with normal eyes upon indirect ophthalmoscopy and slit lamp biomicroscopy, were age and sex matched and
