PURPOSE Oxidative stress induces retinal damage and contributes to vision loss in progressive retinopathies. Carcinine (β-alanyl-histamine) is a natural imidazole-containing peptide derivative with antioxidant activity. It is predicted to scavenge 4-hydroxynonenal (4-HNE), a toxic product of lipid oxidation. The aim of this study was to confirm the 4-HNE(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the survival and behavior of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) microaggregates transplanted onto hydraulically debrided Bruch's membrane and to compare results of using three different vehicles for cell delivery. METHODS RPE microaggregates obtained from male cats were transplanted onto the tapetal area of female cats after native(More)
