1. Extraction of a chronically implanted, microfabricated, subretinal electrode array.

    Ophthalmic Research 42(3):128 (2009) PMID 19590253

    To assess the feasibility of extraction of a chronically implanted subretinal electrode array. Inactive, polyimide strips (10 mm x 1.5 mm x 15 microm) were surgically implanted into the subretinal space of 8 rabbits using a mostly ab externo approach. Pre- and postoperative clinical examinations...
  2. Classification and prediction of clinical Alzheimer's diagnosis based on plasma signaling proteins.

    Nature Medicine 13(11):1359 (2007) PMID 17934472

    A molecular test for Alzheimer's disease could lead to better treatment and therapies. We found 18 signaling proteins in blood plasma that can be used to classify blinded samples from Alzheimer's and control subjects with close to 90% accuracy and to identify patients who had mild cognitive impa...
