Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) is one of the candidate molecules among neurotrophic factors proposed for a potential treatment of retinitis pigmentosa (RP). It must be administered repeatedly or through sustained releasing systems to exert prolonged neuroprotective effects. In the dystrophic Royal College of Surgeon's (RCS) rat model of(More)
Liposomes are vesicular lipidic systems allowing encapsulation of drugs. This article reviews the relevant issues in liposome structure (composition and size), and their influence on intravitreal pharmacokinetics. Liposome-mediated drug delivery to the posterior segment of the eye via intravitreal administration has been addressed by several authors and(More)
Inhibition of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) has become the standard of care for patients presenting with wet age-related macular degeneration. However, monthly intravitreal injections are required for optimal efficacy. We have previously shown that electroporation enabled ciliary muscle gene transfer results in sustained protein secretion into(More)
By the method of indirect immunohistochemistry, distribution of transferrin and of transferrin receptor of the type (TFR1) was studied in the formed rat eye retina at the period of early postnatal ontogenesis (from birth to opening of eyelids). It has been established that the character of distribution of these proteins and intensity of specific staining(More)
