PURPOSE Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) is an angiogenic peptide that may be important in the pathogenesis of choroidal neovascularization. We attempted to determine the transcription of the bFGF gene during the development of experimentally induced choroidal neovascularization. METHODS Rat bFGF cDNA was inserted in the pBluescript to prepare antisense and sense riboprobes. Multiple krypton laser burns were applied to the posterior poles of the eyes of pigmented rats according to a… CONTINUE READING
