The goal of this review is to present the current knowledge on specific growth factor involvement in posterior segment eye disease. Growth factors can be defined as multifunctional signals which modify cell growth or proliferation, alone or in concert, by binding to specific cell surface receptors. Their biological effects on cells include cell adhesion, migration, survival, differentiation, extracellular matrix secretion, protease and protease inhibitor release, production of other growth… CONTINUE READING
