To evaluate the neuroprotective potential of drug candidates to treat human glaucoma, a short-term rodent model of retinal ganglion cell death was employed. Transient ischemia applied to the rodent retina, with subsequent reperfusion for 1-4 weeks, produces an experimental retinal ganglion cell death that is quantifiable. A widely used method to detect(More)
PURPOSE Early subnormal retinal oxygenation response to a hyperoxic provocation (DeltaPo2) is strongly associated with subsequent experimental diabetic retinopathy and can be reversed by drug treatments started with the induction of diabetes. It is not yet known whether drug treatment can reverse an established subnormal DeltaPo2. METHODS Retinal DeltaPo2(More)
