    Oct testing for plaquenil


    To characterize structural changes of HCQ retinopathy with SD-OCT after drug cessation. Setting: Private practice and academic institution. Patient Population: Patients at New England Eye Center and Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston in Boston, MA diagnosed with HCQ retinopathy and followed after drug cessation.

    Today it is recommended that every single person on Plaquenil get a visual field 10-2 test, plus one of the three other highly sensitive screening tests the FAF fundus autofluorescence imaging, the SD-OCT spectral domain optical coherence, or the multifocal electroretinogram mfERG,” Thomas says. Because early toxicity changes can be revealed on SD-OCT, it is prudent to perform a baseline screening of patients taking Plaquenil. Multifocal ERG has the ability to detect early macular dysfunction, so it should be included as part of baseline screening. A maximum daily dose of Plaquenil of 5.0mg/kg real weight is recommended. Oct 21, 2010 Duration of treatment with HCQ in these patients ranged from less than one year to 22 years, daily doses from 3.0 to 7.2 mg/kg, and cumulative doses from 146 to 2628 g. Of these patients with no SD OCT abnormalities, three complained of vision changes and eight had abnormalities on HVF 10-2 perimetry.

    Main Outcome Measures: SD-OCT findings suggestive of HCQ retinopathy before parafoveal ellipsoid disruption. Retrospective clinical data review by the Boston Image Reading Center.

    Apr 17, 2017 The goal for Plaquenil Screening to detect toxicity early and stop the medication as soon as possible if present. Functional test that focus on central field sensitivity may pick up early toxicity. Early structural changes may be difficult to detect and high resolution optical coherence tomography OCT and fundus autofluorescence are very useful in detecting subtle changes. Apr 30, 2013 SD-OCT scan from a 44-year-old woman with bilateral plaquenil toxicity. There is damage visible in the outer retina in a perifoveal distribution. Plaquenil is the brand name for the prescription drug hydroxychloroquine. It's used to treat and prevent malaria infection, and to reduce symptoms and progression of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and others. Malaria is spread by mosquitoes.

    COVID-19 Prophylaxis in Healthcare workers. - Health 2019 Ongoing treatment 500mg chloroquine salt 300mg base taken daily for 12 days. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ is nearly identical in structure to CQ and has a similar mechanism of action and therapeutic efficacy in rheumatological and infectious diseases. Like CQ, it also has a long half-life, and a very high volume of distribution.

    FAQs - Autophagy and LC3 - Novus Biologicals LC3-II shows up at 14-16 kDa in comparison to 16-18kDa for LC3-I. LC3-I and LC3-II's differential mobility helps in their detection/characterization in Western blot WB assay and the conversion of LC3-I to the lower migrating form LC3-II has been used as an indicator of autophagy in countless studies.
