Nanotechnology is one of the new approaches introduced to improve agricultural production as the present ecosystem balance starts to decline significantly due to the extensive use of classical agriculture. Nanoparticles are suitable alternative materials in place of the excessive use of chemicals, pesticides, and fungicides in agricultural crops to resist various plant diseases and pests. Moreover, it has been demonstrated that the application of nanoparticles improves plant tolerance to various...

Abstract Understanding the genetic basis of seed germination under salt stress as severe abiotic stress can help in improving barley plant growth performance, production, and productivity. Salt tolerance is complex trait that controlled by many genes and its genetic basis needs to be dissected. In the current study, 121 spring worldwide barley accessions were evaluated for salinity stress tolerance using 200 mM NaCl during seed germination and seedling developmental phase. Induced salt stress re...

Abstract null null Purpose null To raise awareness of ophthalmologists that Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) retinitis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of retinitis that presents with features of progressive outer retinal necrosis (PORN) in healthy immunocompetent patients. null null null Observations null Case 1 is a 39-year-old healthy Caucasian male who presented after one week of decreased vision in the left eye. Patient was found to have optic disc edema and multifocal retinit...

Serous choroidal detachment that is caused by rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) may present a significant diagnostic challenge as delayed recognition and repair of the underlying RRD can severely impact the final anatomical and visual outcome. We report 2 consecutive patients with atypical choroidal detachments who were later found to have underlying RRDs. A 71-year-old female presented with a 1-week history of painful vision loss and floaters in the left eye. Examination revealed choroida...

Abstract Drought is one of the complex abiotic phenomena that limit wheat production. Improving drought tolerance at the seedling stage is very important as it is a critical stage affecting the subsequent growth stages. In this study, a population consisted of 138 diverse spring wheat genotypes was used to identify the most drought tolerant genotypes and genomic regions controlling drought tolerance at the seedling stage. Three morphological traits were scored: seedling length, days to wilting, ...

AIM/PURPOSE Bloodstream candida infections can seed the eye via hematogenous spread and result in chorioretinitis or endophthalmitis. If undetected and untreated, this can result in permanent vision loss. Past studies evaluating incidence of ocular candidiasis among hospitalized patients with positive fungal blood cultures have demonstrated variable rates of occurrence, but recent studies have generally shown a lower incidence than was reported several decades ago. Given low rates of occurrence,...

Objective To report the trends for the use of eye protection methods during retinal laser in clinic and operating room. Methods and analysis Retrospective analysis of a 14-item survey questionnaire submitted to the European Vitreoretinal Society members. Results Responses from 630 members were analysed. Most of the respondents practised in Europe (52.7%), followed by North America (21.0%). The majority of respondents had laser filters in the microscope for the operating surgeon (92.1%), or used ...

A 5-year-old boy had subacute painless visual loss in his left eye with disk edema, macular edema, and choroidal thickening. He was subsequently diagnosed with inflammatory papillitis and choroiditis from Crohn's disease. The disk and macular edema responded minimally to antivascular endothelial growth factor injections but significantly to intravitreal corticosteroids.

PURPOSE To evaluate the visual outcome associated with intravitreal antibiotics (IVA) and pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) for acute postprocedure endophthalmitis. METHODS Data from 237 eyes presenting with acute postprocedure endophthalmitis were collected from 57 retina specialists in 28 countries. All eyes were treated with IVA on the day of presentation. We classified eyes according to the method of treatment used as IVA and early PPV (IVA + PPV within 1 week of presentation) groups. RESULTS Afte...
