Abstract

The main objective is to find out which the value of the iris examination is in diagnostic  or  prognostic approach for respiratory  pathology. The study is constructed on recently and complex data from: embryology, genetics, neurology, biometry and quantum physics, which give a thorough justification to the study. Selection of subjects was made by cvasialeatory systematical selection, transversal, retrospective. Personal data registration was made, as well as data about their known pathology. Each subject’s right and left iris image was acquired and then the iris image was analyzed, overall and sectorial, after a precise protocol. Data were archived and statistically processed.  The studied irian markers were: overall markers (colour, density), local markers (contractional furrows, marginal zone, Wölflinn nodules, autonomic wreath, radial folds) and two characteristics of the peripheral cornea (gerontoxon, arcus senilis). There were found significant statistical correlations with gerontoxon and sectorial irian mark; statistical index were computed, to appreciate the markers’ value as diagnostic tests and/or prognostic factors. There are distinguished groups of genes that may be involved in the development of some irian markers accompanying certain respiratory diseases. Iris analysis may be used as diagnostic test and/or prognostic factor in respiratory pathology; iris analyze is a non-invasive, accessible and inexpensive method, useful in directing diagnosis; the studied iris markers have a new semiological value, useful in daily medical practice.
