M2 PHARMA-November 19, 2015-Glaukos Submits IND Application to US FDA to Study iDose Travoprost Intraocular Implant
in Glaucoma Patients
Ophthalmologists from India and the US cover gas forced infusion, no-anesthesia cataract surgery with the karate chop technique, phacoemulsification in subluxated cataracts, mature cataracts, small pupil phacoemulsification, combined cataract and glaucoma surgery, managing dislocated lens fragments, the malpositioned intraocular implant
, infectious endophthalmitis, cystoid macular edema, ophthalmic viscosurgical device surgery, bimanual phacoemulsification/Phakonit/MICS (micro-incision cataract surgery), microphakonit, glued intrascleral haptic fixation of the intraocular lens, glued intraocular lens surgery with add-on procedures, intraocular lens scaffold, and pars plicata anterior vitrectomy.
The first was the Intraocular Implant
and Refractive Society, India (IIRSI) meeting held between 6 -7 July in Chennai, India.
A classic illustration is recounted in this unusual Illinois case in which the patient's intraocular implant
ultimately resulted in a fungus in the eye causing a total lack of sight in the eye.
The ECT intraocular implant
is a small device--the size of a grain of rice--containing cells that provide sustained delivery of a vision-preserving protein known as ciliary neurotrophic factor, which is delivered directly to the back of the eye in a controlled, continuous basis, thus bypassing the blood-retinal barrier and overcoming a major obstacle in the treatment of retinal disease.
It is comprised of an intraocular implant
and an extraocular part (in a pair of glasses), which consists of a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor image sensor that records visual images.
NT-501 is an intraocular implant
that consists of human cells genetically modified to secrete ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) - a nerve growth factor capable of rescuing and protecting dying photoreceptors.
Systemic therapy consisting of corticosteroids and immunosuppressants preserved vision of uveitis patients better and had fewer adverse outcomes than a long-lasting corticosteroid intraocular implant
, according to a clinical trial funded by the National Eye Institute (NEI).
He has presented over 27 named lectures including the Choyce Medal Lecture at the United Kingdom Intraocular Implant
Society, the Irving H.
Lindstrom is a past President of the ISRS and currently serves as President of the International Intraocular Implant
Society ("IIC") and the International Refractive Surgery Club ("ISRC"), two prestigious organizations representing leading cataract and refractive surgeons worldwide.
BW HealthWire)--July 14, 1997--New data reported in the New England Journal of Medicine indicates that sustained-release ganciclovir (Cytovene; Roche Laboratories) intraocular implant
(Vitrasert; Chiron Vision) significantly delays the onset of cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis in people with AIDS compared to standard IV therapy.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market Vitrasert(TM), its intraocular implant
which delivers ganciclovir directly to the eye for treatment of cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis.
