  • Near visual impairment and spectacle coverage in Telangana, India
    • Authors: Srinivas Marmamula; Rohit C Khanna DOMS, Eswararao Kunuku, Gullapalli N Rao
      Abstract: ImportanceThe study highlights the burden of Near Visual Impairment (NVI) in IndiaBackgroundNVI is a common condition that can be addressed through provision of spectacles. The study aims to assess the prevalence of NVI and spectacle coverage among those aged ≥40 years south Indian state of Telangana.DesignPopulation based cross sectional study using a rapid assessment methodology.Participants5140 participants enumerated from 123 clusters in two districts and have presenting distance visual acuity of ≥ 6/18 in the better eye.MethodsPresenting near vision was assessed binocularly at a fixed distance of 40 cm using a log MAR chart with tumbling E optotypes in ambient lighting conditions. If the presenting near vision was worse than 6/12 (log MAR 0.3), then it was re-assessed with addition lens appropriate to the age. NVI was defined as binocular presenting near vision worse than 6/12.Main Outcome MeasuresPrevalence of NVI and spectacle coverage.ResultsThe mean age of the participants was 51.1 years (Standard deviation: 9.3years) and 46.5% (n=2392) were women. About 80% (n=4142) of them had no education and 57.8% (n=2969) were using spectacles for near. Nearly half of them were from Adilabad district (n=2665). The prevalence of NVI was 58.3% (95% CI: 56.9 – 59.6) and was associated with older age groups, male gender, and no education. The spectacle coverage was 26.5%.Conclusions and relevanceNVI is common in rural Telangana with low spectacle coverage. Service delivery programs should use a multi-prong approach to address the burden of NVI.

  • Feasibility of a polyethylene glycol-derivative polymer as retinal patch
           to seal retinal breaks during vitrectomy for rhegmatogenous retinal
           detachment: a prospective, in-vivo pilot-study in a porcine model
    • Authors: Jean Pierre Hubschman; Andrea Govetto, Matthew Farajzadeh, Tatsuhiko Sato, Syed Askari, Ben Glasgow
      Abstract: BackgroundThis is a pilot study to test a polyethylene glycol (PEG) derived polymer used as a retinal patch to seal retinal breaks during pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) in the treatment of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) in a porcine model.MethodsSixteen eyes from 8 pigs were assigned to 2 study groups (12 eyes) and one control group (4 eyes). In all study groups the polymer was used in-vivo, during PPV, to seal the break of a surgically induced RRD. Eyes in study groups were partially or completely filled with balanced saline solution at the end of the surgery. In the control group the polymer was not used and the eyes underwent standard RRD repair with PPV, laser retinopexy, and SF6 endo-tamponade. All eyes underwent fundus examination at day 3, week 1 and 2 after surgery. All eyes from all groups were enucleated and processed for qualitative histologic evaluation.ResultsIntraoperatively, the polymer showed good adherence and compliance to the retina. At week 1, retina was attached in all cases, and no recurrences of the RRD were diagnosed throughout the follow up period. The polymer was visible with indirect ophthalmoscopy up to week 1. At week 2, the polymer was no longer visible in all cases. Histologically, a mild histiocytic reaction was noticed in the retinas of 4 out of 12 study eyes (33.3%). In the control eyes, non-specific inflammatory signs of retinal inflammation were reported in 2 out of 4 eyes (50%).ConclusionsThis study provides initial data to support the use of this polymer as a promising alternative to standard endo-tamponade agents. Its safety and biocompatibility need to be further assessed.

  • Human limbal neurospheres prevent photoreceptor cell death in a rat model
           of retinal degeneration
    • Authors: Samuel McLenachan; Dan Zhang, Erwei Hao, Ling Zhang, Shang-Chih Chen, Fred K Chen
      Abstract: BackgroundThe culture of retinal progenitors from an accessible adult stem cell source such as the limbus could provide a useful autologous source of retinal cell therapies. The human corneoscleral limbus contains multipotent stem cells that can be cultured as floating neurospheres. Previous work in rodents has demonstrated neuronal and photoreceptor differentiation from limbal neurosphere cultures. Here, we have examined undifferentiated cultured adult human limbal neurospheres as donor cells for retinal cell therapies by transplantation into a rat model of retinal degeneration.MethodsGene expression in limbal neurospheres was examined by immunostaining and western blot. Human limbal neurospheres were transplanted into the subretinal space of Royal College of Surgeon's rats. Rats were monitored by optical coherence tomography for 6 weeks then processed for retinal histology.ResultsHuman limbal neurospheres expressed the neural lineage markers, Nestin, SOX2 and N-cadherin, and the retinal transcription factors MITF, RAX and OTX2. Human limbal neurospheres could be cultured to express NeuN, neurofilament and rhodopsin. Rats receiving saline or no injection underwent complete degeneration of the retinal outer nuclear layer after 3 weeks. In contrast, rats injected with human limbal neurospheres or retinal pigment epithelial cells maintained the outer nuclear layer for up to 6 weeks. Gene expression in transplanted limbal neurospheres was inconsistent with the production of mature RPE or photoreceptor cells.ConclusionsGene expression in human limbal neurospheres was consistent with a retinal progenitor phenotype. The lack of maturation of limbal neurospheres in vivo suggests diffusible factors may contribute to retinal rescue after transplantation.

  • Ten-year incidence and prevalence of clinically diagnosed blepharitis in
           South Korea: A nationwide population-based cohort study
    • Authors: Tyler Hyungtaek Rim; Min Jae Kang, Moonjung Choi, Kyoung Yul Seo, Sung Soo Kim
      Abstract: ImportanceBlepharitis is one of the most common conditions. However, no study has yet evaluated the epidemiology by evaluating a large population-based sample.BackgroundTo evaluate the incidence and prevalence of clinically diagnosed blepharitis in South Korea.DesignNationwide population-based study.ParticipantsWe investigated the Korean National Health Insurance Service-National Sample Cohort, a representative 1 million-sample of the Korean population, for patients diagnosed with blepharitis according to the Korean Classification of Diseases.MethodsAnnual and overall incidence and prevalence of blepharitis during the study period (2004–2013) were estimated after excluding chronic blepharitis patients, diagnosed during 2002–2003. Sociodemographic factors and comorbidities associated with blepharitis were evaluated using Cox proportional hazard regression.Main Outcome MeasuresThe first occurrence of blepharitis (Korean Classification of Diseases [KCD], H010, corresponding to the International Classification of Diseases-9-Clinical Modification [ICD-9-CM], 373.0).ResultsA total of 1,116,363 individuals over 9,698,118 person-years were evaluated (mean follow-up: 8.7 years) from 2004 to 2013. The overall incidence was 1.1 (95 % Confidence Interval [CI], 1.1 − 1.1) per 100 person-years. The incidence increased with time (0.9 versus 1.3 per 100 person-years, in 2004 and 2013, respectively) and was higher in female patients (1.3 versus 0.9 per 100 person-years, respectively). The incidence was higher in both the elderly and children than in adolescents or young adults. The overall prevalence was 8.1% (95% CI: 8.0-8.1) among subjects aged 40 years or older. Chalazion, gastritis, Sjögren's syndrome, pterygium, rosacea, prostatic hypertrophy, atopy, irritable bowel disease, and peptic ulcer were associated with an increased incidence of blepharitis in the multivariable Cox model.ConclusionsWe found that blepharitis was a relatively common disease, and is associated with various ocular and systemic conditions.

  • China's Foreign Trade: A “New Normal”
    • Authors: Francoise Lemoine; Deniz Unal
      Pages: 1 - 21
      Abstract: Since the global financial crisis of 2007/2008, China's foreign trade has continued to grow faster than international trade, but its drivers are now different from those prevailing before. The participation of the Chinese economy in the global production chains through processing activities is no longer the main driver of its trade performance. The new driving force of change is ordinary trade, based mainly on local inputs and domestic demand. China, which played a major role in the globalization process as an export base for multinational companies, is now shifting to having a “normal” foreign trade system, which is more closely integrated into the domestic economy.

  • Renminbi Internationalization in the New Normal: Progress, Determinants
           and Policy Discussions
    • Authors: Cheng Li; Xiaojing Zhang
      Pages: 22 - 44
      Abstract: In the present paper we explore the internationalization of the renminbi with reference to the experiences of other monetary powers, and discuss its determinants, prospects and implications for China's development in the “new normal.” Specifically, after summarizing the major progress made thus far, we conduct a regression analysis, showing that economic size and financial conditions are significant determinants of the international currency status, while inertia and other unobserved factors also play important roles. These empirical findings enable us to undertake a scenario analysis focusing on the renminbi's potential to become a global reserve currency. Based on this quantitative research, we then revisit China's policy initiatives designed to promote its currency overseas. In our view, the internationalization of the renminbi, along with financial deepening and liberalization, should be regarded as a means to achieve China's goal of reaching a more sustainable and balanced model of development.

  • Effect of Parental Migration on the Academic Performance of Left-behind
           Middle School Students in Rural China
    • Authors: Lili Li; Lei Wang, Jingchun Nie
      Pages: 45 - 59
      Abstract: China's rapid development and urbanization over the past 30 years have caused large numbers of rural residents to migrate to urban areas in search of work. This has created a generation of children who remain behind in rural areas when their parents migrate for work. Previous research has found mixed impacts of parental migration on the educational achievement of left-behind children (LBC), perhaps because of methodological deficiencies and lack of recognition of the heterogeneity of this population of children. Our study attempts to examine the impact of six types of parental migration on the academic achievement of a rural junior high school sample. Our study uses a panel of 7148 junior high school students to implement a difference-in-difference analysis and finds that parental migration has a negative and significant impact on the academic achievement of junior high school students. Our study suggests that the Chinese Government should implement measures to dismantle barriers to the human capital accumulation of LBC to ensure sustainable economic growth and human capital development in China.

  • University Students' Entrepreneurial Intentions: A Comparative Analysis of
           Hong Kong and Guangzhou
    • Authors: Frank Bickenbach; Dirk Dohse, Wan-Hsin Liu
      Pages: 60 - 84
      Abstract: Based on original survey data, this paper analyses and compares the role of personal traits and networks in determining entrepreneurial intentions of students in Hong Kong and in Guangzhou. The two cities are culturally closely related but differ strongly with respect to their labor market conditions and the maturity of their legal and business environments. We find that the determinants of students' entrepreneurial intentions differ substantially between Hong Kong and Guangzhou, with the findings for Hong Kong showing much similarity with previous findings for Western economies. This suggests that differences in labor market prospects and in the maturity of their legal and business environments might be more important than cultural (dis-)similarities in identifying key factors forming students' entrepreneurial intentions.

  • Analysis of Impact of Urbanization on Environmental Quality in China
    • Authors: Houkai Wei; Yan Zhang
      Pages: 85 - 106
      Abstract: As a developing country with great regional disparities, China's rapid urbanization has had important impacts on environmental quality. In this study, the drivers-mechanisms-effects (DME) model is built, which shows how element agglomeration, scale growth, knowledge accumulation and industry evolution drive the environmental system to change during the urbanization process. An econometric regression model using provincial panel data is further constructed to empirically analyze the impacts of urbanization on environmental quality. It is shown that during the process of urbanization in China, element agglomeration and knowledge accumulation help to improve environmental quality but with weak positive effect, while growing urban scale and industrial structure have obvious negative effects on environmental quality. The “inverted-U shape” (up first and then down) change in the environmental quality during China's urbanization process is obvious. It is critical that China concentrates on the transformations of both city development paths and urbanization models to reduce resource and environmental costs as much as possible.

  • Anti-dumping Shock and the Productivity Response of Chinese Industries
    • Authors: Chunding Li
      Pages: 107 - 126
      Abstract: This paper provides a comprehensive analysis of the productivity effects of antidumping (AD) measures on Chinese industries. Industry-year panel data and generalized method of moments estimators are used in the empirical analysis. Productivity indicators are calculated using data envelope analysis. The empirical results show that China's industrial total factor productivity has improved under the pressure of AD measures taken by developed countries, and the mechanism inspires technological progress but hurts technological efficiency. Developing countries' AD measures have no significant productivity effects on China's targeted industries, except for slightly positive effects on technological efficiency. These results indicate that China should pay more attention to technological innovation and take different counter-measures for different cases of AD measures.
