Vascular dysregulation has long been recognized as an important pathophysiological factor underlying the development of glaucomatous neuropathy. Endothelin-1 (ET1) has been shown to be a key player due to its potent vasoconstrictive properties that result in retinal ischemia and oxidative stress leading to retinal ganglion cell (RGC) apoptosis and optic(More)
Techniques for performing antidromic conduction velocity studies on forearm sensory nerves were evaluated in 157 healthy subjects from 17 to 80 years of age. The lateral antebrachial cutaneous nerve (LABCN) and the medial antebrachial cutaneous nerve (MABCN) were studied in the same upper extremity at a distance of 14 cm. The mean values for LABCN were(More)
Glutamate excitotoxicity plays a major role in the loss of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) in glaucoma. The toxic effects of glutamate on RGCs are mediated by the overstimulation of N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. Accordingly, NMDA receptor antagonists have been suggested to inhibit excitotoxicity in RGCs and delay the progression and visual loss in(More)
