Salvador da Bahia – mechentel news – The ophthalmic reference values from A. P. Oriá et al. from the School of Veterinary Medicine and Zootechny, Federal University of Bahia UFBA, Salvador, BA, Brazil, in theyr study of Conjunctival flora, Schirmer’s tear test, intraocular pressure, and conjunctival cytology in neotropical primates from Salvador, Brazil, to establish reference values for selected ophthalmic diagnostic tests in healthy neotropical primates, will be particularly useful to diagnose discrete or unusual pathological changes in the neotropical primates eye. A total of 73 intact adults, including Callithrix jacchus (n = 31), Callithrix penicillata (n = 8), Cebus sp. (n = 22), and Cebus xanthosternos (n = 9) were used to evaluate the normal conjunctival bacterial flora. Cebus xanthosternos (n = 12) were used to evaluate tear production with Schirmer’s tear test (STT), intraocular pressure (IOP), and conjunctival cytology. For all animals evaluated, Gram-positive bacteria were predominant. Results of the diagnostic tests in Cebus xanthosternos published in the issue of July from the J Med Primatol were as follows: STT: 14.92 ± 5.46 mm/minutes, IOP: 19.62 ± 4.57 mmHg, and conjunctival cytology revealed intermediate squamous epithelial cells in great quantities.
