CNTF promotes survival of retinal ganglion cells after induction of ocular hypertension in rats: the possible involvement of STAT3 pathway.

Abstract

We examined the neuroprotective effect of ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) on retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) in a rat glaucoma model with increased intraocular pressure (IOP) and studied the CNTF-mediated activation of Janus kinase/signal transducer and activator of transcription (JAK-STAT) pathway. Elevated IOP was induced by laser photocoagulation of the… (More)
