Retinal excitotoxicity is associated with retinal ischemia, and with glaucomatous and traumatic optic neuropathy. The present study investigates the role of c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) activation in NMDA-mediated retinal excitotoxicity and determines whether neuroprotection can be obtained with the JNK pathway inhibitor, D-form of JNK-inhibitor 1(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW The concept that optic nerve fiber loss might be reduced by neuroprotection arose in the mid 1990s. The subsequent research effort, focused mainly on rodent models, has not yet transformed into a successful clinical trial, but provides mechanistic understanding of retinal ganglion cell death and points to potential therapeutic strategies.(More)
Optic pathway gliomas (OPGs) manifest with neuro-ophthalmic symptoms and signs; however, presentation can vary as their location and growth patterns are highly variable. An exophytic expansion of an OPG within the intracranial cavity can cause compression on neurological structures, warranting intervention. However, management guidelines are limited and the(More)
