corneal dystrophy of Bowman layer, type 1

An autosomal dominant (OMIM:608470) form of corneal dystrophy characterised by dusty corneal opacities and a rough, map-like surface with a peripheral condensation ring separated from the limbus by a narrow strip of normal cornea.

Molecular pathology
Has been linked to defects of TGFBI, which encodes an RGD protein that binds to type-I, -II and -IV collagens and plays a role in cell–collagen interactions.

Ordinal logistic analysis results showed that no matter the model for RBID or RBCD, the data fit the ordinal logistic regression model well, with P > 0.05 in the test of parallel lines; the goodness of fit was also fine with P < 0.05 in − 2 LL and P > 0.05 in Pearson's Chi-square test [Table 4] and [Table 5].
[sup][26] The survey showed that, regarding some RBCD, daily breakfast and vegetable consumption was at 84.0% and 67.0%, respectively, among the learners; this was 79.4% and 81.2% in our study.
Although few studies have focused on behaviors for infectious diseases, there are a number of studies that have examined the clustering of RBCD. [sup][11],[12],[24],[29] Our results from the log-linear models showed clear evidence that risk behaviors for infectious and chronic diseases were not independent, but were instead clustered together, such as washing hands before eating and after defecation, SIP and DUTW, fruit consumption and milk intake, and breakfast and vegetable consumption.
