Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) has been shown to play an important role in a variety of inflammatory and immune-mediated diseases. The inflammatory responses contribute to retinal neuronal degeneration. However, the role of MIF in the progression of retinal degeneration has not yet been elucidated. In this study, we determined whether(More)
We examined the effects of the serine protease inhibitor nafamostat mesilate on neuronal and vascular injury in rat retinas treated with N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA). The degree of neuronal degeneration was assessed by measuring the number of cells in the ganglion cell layer and the thickness of the inner plexiform layer. The degree of capillary degeneration(More)
