ANTIBODY profiles of patients with primary open-angle glaucoma and normal tension glaucoma lend support to the idea of an autoimmune role in glaucoma pathogenesis, German researchers report. “Glaucoma is characterised by a progressive loss of retinal ganglion cells that results in a characteristic optic neuropathy associated with visual field loss.At the time of detection, the minimal loss in RGC is frequently as high as 50%. Intraocular pressure can be elevated or normal at this time. By the… CONTINUE READING
