COLLABORATION WITH RESEARCH GROUPS
-- AT NATIONAL LEVEL actively collaborates with the Electron Microscopy Center of the Institute of Pathological Anatomy of the University of Parma (Dott.ssa T. D'Adda and Prof. D. Corradi) carrying out an interesting research activity about the histological and ultrastructural alterations of human extraocular musculature in various ocular myopathies such as, for example, Chronic External Progressive Ophthalmoplegia, Thyroid-Associated Ophthalmopathy, and Moebius Syndrome. The results of the research completed to date have been exhibited at scientific congresses and published in international journals.
-- AT NATIONAL LEVEL it actively collaborates with the Neurogenetics Laboratory of the Department of Neurological Sciences of the University of Bologna (Contact person: Dr. V. Carelli). With this Laboratory he carries out research on mitochondrial diseases of neurophthalmological interest, such as Leber's Juvenile Hereditary Optic Neuropathy and Dominant Optic Atrophy. Research is still ongoing and aimed at the genetic, functional, prognostic and therapeutic aspects of these Rare Diseases. The results of the research completed to date have already been exhibited at scientific congresses and published in international journals.
-- AT NATIONAL LEVEL he collaborated with the Institute of Human Physiology of the University of Parma (Prof. Fadiga) in the context of a research concerning the modifications of the spatial attention of patients affected by isolated unilateral cranial nerve VI palsy suddenly on a microvascular basis. The study was aimed at researching the modifications of saccadic trajectories in people in whom there is a peripheral (troncular damage of the cranial nerve) and non-central (cerebral) impediment to their execution. The results of this collaboration have been published in Rivista Internazionale.
-- AT NATIONAL LEVEL he has collaborated with the Institute of General Pathology of the University of Parma (Referent: Prof. P.G. Petronini) in the context of a scientific collaboration concerning the pathogenetic mechanisms of Low Voltage Glaucoma, investigating apoptosis of peripheral lymphocytes in patients affected by this disease, as well as the sensitivity and response of these cells to oxidative stress.
-- AT NATIONAL LEVEL collaborates with the Bietti-IRCCS Foundation of Rome within a Research Program concerning the thematic area "Physical Disabilities and Rehabilitation". This Research has as its object of study Leber's Hereditary Juvenile Optic Neuropathy both in terms of early diagnosis and visual rehabilitation. This collaboration is part of a multi-centre study, as shown below, with an expected duration of 2 years (2007-2009). This study produced data that were presented on various occasions to the international scientific community; from this collaboration we aim to produce the Diagnostic-Therapeutic Guidelines to be proposed to the Italian Ministry of Health for this pathology.
-- AT INTERNATIONAL LEVEL he has been collaborating since 1997 with the Doheny Eye Institute of Los Angeles, USA. The local contact person for this collaboration is Prof. Alfredo A. Sadun. The research activity concerns the field of Neurophthalmology with research carried out (or in progress) on the histological aspects of optic neuropathies on a toxic-deficiency basis, on the ultrastructural alterations of neuronal cells in culture caused by toxic agents, on the histological aspects of tumors involving the optical pathways, such as gliomas and gangliogliomas. Collaborates on experimental models of optic neuropathy caused by Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF), laboratory reproduction of optic neuropathy during HIV infection, with particular attention to the apoptotic death of retinal ganglion cells after intravitreal injections of TNF. Furthermore, with particular interest, research is carried out on neurophthalmological diseases with mitochondrial pathogenesis such as Leber's Juvenile Optic Neuropathy, Dominant Optic Atrophy, as well as on traumatisms of the optic nerve and on the morphological aspects in the course of oedematous alterations of the optic disc ( detected both ophthalmoscopically and by OCT analysis). This collaboration, which continues to this day, has produced extensive publications in international scientific journals as well as presentations of work at scientific congresses.
-- AT INTERNATIONAL LEVEL he worked within the Research Project "Ocular models for aging and age-related diseases" funded by the European Community (EEC contract BM H4 CT96-1593). The activity of Dr. Arturo Carta within this Research Project began in February 1999 and ended in October of the same year. The research was aimed at the study of experimental models of cataract and in particular at the study of genes modulated in response to oxidative stress in the bovine lens. This research was carried out in collaboration with the Institute of Biochemical Sciences of the Faculty of Mathematical, Physical and Natural Sciences of the University of Parma, where the molecular biology part of this project was carried out. The results of this collaboration have been exhibited at scientific congresses and published in an international journal.
-- AT INTERNATIONAL LEVEL he has collaborated with the Research Group headed by Prof. A. Mutti (Toxicology Laboratory of the Occupational Medicine Section of the Department of Clinical Medicine and Nephrology of the University of Parma) within the Project of Multicenter Research ENV-CT96-0171 funded by the European Commission and which involved the Research Center of the Salvatore Maugeri Foundation of Pavia, the Toxicology Division of the Karolinska Institute of Stockholm and the Fundacion Valenciana de Investigaciones Biomedicas of Valencia. The Research Project was aimed at studying the systemic toxicity of styrene in exposed guinea pigs; the part of the work carried out by Dr. Arturo Carta concerned the neurotoxicity of styrene at the retinal and optic nerve level; styrene is an anti-dopaminergic substance capable of causing acquired dyschromatopsia and various types of visual impairment in humans. The results of this collaboration have been exhibited at scientific congresses and published in an international journal.
-- AT INTERNATIONAL LEVEL he collaborates with the Department of Human Genetics of the Radboud University at the Nijmegen Medical Center in the Netherlands (Referee: Prof. Hans van Bokhoven). The Research Project in which Dr. Arturo Carta is involved concerns the identification and characterization of chromosomal aberrations in patients with Moebius Syndrome using the "high-density SNP microarrays" technique. The Department of Human Genetics of Radboud University is the Center where the Gene Loci associated with Moebius Syndrome have been identified in families affected by the disease (and reported in the OMIM database of hereditary diseases). However, in the sporadic forms (which represent 90% of cases) no genetic alterations associated with this congenital disease have yet been identified. For this reason, Dr. Arturo Carta brought 10 DNA samples obtained from peripheral lymphocytes of patients affected by the Syndrome, in order to analyze the gene regions potentially involved in the pathogenesis of Moebius (probably multifactorial), which falls into the category of Rare Diseases . These researches are still ongoing and the first results have been published in the prestigious journal NATURE Communication.
-- AT INTERNATIONAL LEVEL he has collaborated, as creator and principal investigator of the research, in a retrospective multicenter study on post-traumatic optic neuropathy, aimed at highlighting visual prognostic signs in this pathology. This research was made possible thanks to the collaboration with Prof. A. Boschi of the Ophthalmology Department of the "Universitè Catholique de Louvain" in Brussels, as well as the collaboration with Dr. S. Bianchi-Marzoli of the Oculistic Clinic of the ' San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, with Dr. M. Salvo and Prof. F. Carta of the Ophthalmology Clinic of the University of Sassari, and with L. Ferrigno of the Epidemiology and Biostatistics Laboratory of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità of Rome. The results of this collaboration have been exhibited at scientific congresses and published in an international journal.
