Abstract:Eight human cataractous lenses extracted from eyes suffering from uveitis have been examined by transmission electron microscopy. The following changes have been demonstrated: cellular proliferation, fibrillogenesis and formation of osmiophilic, electron-dense amorphous structures. The changes were most pronounced in young lenses but had no features in common with the FEC (fibrillopathia epitheliocapsularis) syndrome.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
