SENSITIVITY AND FRAGILITY IN KERATOCONUS (1983)
Journal Article
MILLODOT, M., & OWENS, H. (1983). SENSITIVITY AND FRAGILITY IN KERATOCONUS. Acta Ophthalmologica, 61(5), 908-917. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1755-3768.1983.tb01473.x

38 persons with various degrees of keratoconus were examined. Using the photokeratoscope an index of the severity of the cone was established and compared to a group of normal eyes. Sensitivity was measured in the centre and periphery of the cornea.... Read More about SENSITIVITY AND FRAGILITY IN KERATOCONUS.

From Public Assistance Institutions to ‘Sunshine Hotels’: Changing State perceptions about residential care for elderly people, 1939-48 (1983)
Journal Article

1. 1. Fatty acid composition of Geotria australis has been investigated in larvae and downstream migrants and in muscle, liver and gonad of early upstream migrant and nearly mature adults. 2. 2. The main depot lipid class in G. australis is triacy...

1. 1. At the end of the marine trophic phase in Geotria australis, the lipid content (as % wet body weight) was very high in the whole animal (21%) and in the liver (38-40%). 2. 2. During the very long spawning-run period (ca 16 months), vast changes...
