MoisturePlus contact lens solution as a source of acanthamoeba keratitis


Hasler, S; Dedes, W; Mathis, A; Grimm, F; Thiel, M A (2009). MoisturePlus contact lens solution as a source of acanthamoeba keratitis. Cornea, 28(2):219-220.

Abstract

Recently, it was suggested that the use of the Advanced Medical Optics Complete MoisturePlus multipurpose cleaning solution might be a risk factor for contracting Acanthamoeba keratitis, and the manufacturer voluntarily recalled it in May 2007. Polymerase chain reaction amplification and sequencing of a variable part of the 18S rRNA gene allowed for the first time tracking of Advanced Medical Optics Complete MoisturePlus-associated Acanthamoeba keratitis isolate from a patient back to the lens cleaning solution itself.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
