Diabetic Retinopathy: Targeting Vasoregression

  title={Diabetic Retinopathy: Targeting Vasoregression},
  author={Hans Peter Hammes and Yuxi Feng and Frederick Pfister and Michael Brownlee},
Diabetic retinopathy is a clinically well-defined, sight-threatening, chronic microvascular complication that eventually affects virtually all patients with diabetes. Diabetic retinopathy is characterized by gradually progressive alterations in the retinal microvasculature, leading to areas of retinal nonperfusion, increased vasopermeability, and in response to retinal nonperfusion, pathologic intraocular proliferation of retinal vessels (1–3). Most diabetes researchers and clinicians are aware… CONTINUE READING
