A slow progressive death of neurons is the hallmark of neurodegenerative diseases, such as glaucoma. A therapeutic candidate, erythropoietin (EPO), has shown promise in many models of these diseases; however, it also causes polycythemia, a potentially lethal side effect. We have developed a novel mutant form of EPO that is neuroprotective but no longer(More)
The goal of the present study was to determine the minimum concentration of systemic erythropoietin-R76E required for neuroprotection in the retina. Erythropoietin (EPO) exhibits neuroprotective effects in both in vitro and in vivo models of neuronal cell death although its classical function is the regulation of red blood cell production. It can cross the(More)
The Species Survival Commission (SSC) of IUCN—the World Conservation Union is the largest, most comprehensive and diverse professional conservation network in existence today. It brings together over 6000 volunteers from more than 160 countries to contribute to the conservation of biological diversity by developing and executing programmes to study, save,(More)
In 1996, a coalition of diverse and determined organizations launched a new initiative in the Chicago region. Our vision? Chicago Wilderness: a thriving mosaic of natural areas, connected by greenways and wildlife corridors, embedded in the nation's third largest metropolis. In this vision, the region's human communities reclaim a cultural tradition of(More)
Zoos are unique modern institutions. No other public cultural institution combines direct responsibilities for providing recreation, education, research, conservation, and care for living animals. Yet these multiple purposes lead to an inherent paradox for zoos. They work for the survival and well-being of animals, while maintaining animals in a condition(More)
Thank you for the inspiration to complete such a monumental endeavor. iv ABSTRACT Neuroprotection is a strategy to prevent or reduce neuronal cell death regardless of the underlying cause. Erythropoietin (EPO) exhibits neuroprotective effects in a variety of in vitro and in vivo models of neuronal cell death although its classical function is the regulation(More)
