PURPOSE To demonstrate the involvement of proinflammatory cytokines in intraocular neovascularization by detecting the presence of interleukin (IL)-6, IL-2, and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha in aqueous humor and serum of patients with neovascular glaucoma (NVG) secondary to central retinal vein occlusion (CRVO). METHODS According to the grade of iris neovascularization (NVI), patients with CRVO were divided into three groups: CRVO without NVI, CRVO with NVI, and CRVO with regressed NVI… CONTINUE READING
