The post-illumination pupil response (PIPR
) Investig Ophthalmol Vis Sci.
The PIPR was arbitrarily estimated from the area under the curve (AUC) by counting pixel numbers.
The diagnostic value of a PIPR at >1.7 sec after blue light offset, for differentiating between the control group and the diabetic subgroups, was assessed using receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis.
ROC Curve Analysis of the PIPR Mediated by ipRGCs after Blue or Red Light Offset.
"We are hoping that the PIPR
test, which is similar to going to the ophthalmologist, will offer patients and their doctors a quick and easy way to choose from the multiple treatment options for depression: light therapy, antidepressant medication, and psychotherapy," she explained.
Chairman of pig industry skills development Richard Longthorp said: "The introduction of the new entrant's category for PIPR
will be a major step forward in helping the industry stand toe-to-toe with other industries in competing for the attentions of top people."
Food and Farming Minister Lord Rooker said at this week's launch: "I give my full support to PIPR. It is trail-blazing in many ways.
PIPR has been established to recognise professionalism in the pig industry and encourage lifelong learning.
