Dodecafluoropentane emulsion (DDFPe) in 250 nm nanodroplets seems to swell modestly to accept and carry large amounts of oxygen in the body at >29 °C. Small particle size allows oxygen delivery even into hypoxic tissue unreachable by erythrocytes. Using permanent cerebral embolic occlusion in rabbits, we assessed DDFPe dose response as a neuroprotectant at(More)
PURPOSE To review the literature regarding ocular hypertension following intravitreal antivascular endothelial growth factor therapy, and to propose a novel mechanism for the development of ocular hypertension as a result of such therapy. METHODS The PubMed database was used to identify publications by using combinations of the search terms, "glaucoma,"(More)
The nitric oxide (NO) pathway and its physiological significance on relaxing smooth muscle and endothelial cells throughout the body is well outlined and understood. Components of this pathway have been located in the ocular anterior and posterior chambers, and they have been connected with vascular, retinal, and trabecular meshwork normal physiology.(More)
