Cataracts: Chemistry, Mechanisms, Therapy.

Cataracts: Chemistry, Mechanisms, Therapy. This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract Dr. Lerman's most recent book, Cataracts: Chemistry, Mechanisms, Therapy, examines closely and evaluates thoroughly the knowledge available about the production of cataracts. This richly illustrated monograph consists of a detailed consideration of the embryology and morphology of the lens and adjacent structures, including many electron micrographs of the human and animal lens. The carbohydrate, protein, and nucleic acid metabolism of the lens is discussed with a thoroughness that is more than sufficient for the average reader. The process of lens aging and regeneration and the mechanisms of experimental cataracts and their relationship to the cataractous process in man are unraveled in a clear, factual manner. The author presents a simplified classification of cataracts, discusses the lens-induced inflammations, and deals briefly with the therapy of each abnormality. This monograph is particularly well written and presents an organized, comprehensible discussion of the lens from an embryologic, physiologic, biochemical, and therapeutic aspect.
