Intersubject variability in corneal swelling response to anoxia
Efron, Nathan (1986) Intersubject variability in corneal swelling response to anoxia. Acta Ophthalmologica Scandinavica, 64(3), pp. 302-305.
A controlled, double-masked, randomized experiment was conducted on 9 human subjects, to determine whether there is an intersubject difference in the corneal swelling response to anoxia. A statistically significant intersubject variability was observed (P less than 0.001), with oedema ranging from a mean of 3.6% to 7.3% following 3 h exposure to humidified nitrogen gas (anoxia). This result supports the hypothesis of previous workers that the intersubject difference in the corneal oedema response to a thick HEMA "stress lens" is due to oxygen deprivation and not some other physiological variable resulting from lens wear.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
