Inhibitory effect of ischemic preconditioning on leukocyte participation in retinal ischemia-reperfusion injury.


PURPOSE Recent reports have shown that ischemic preconditioning induces strong protection against retinal damage by subsequent prolonged ischemia and that this protection is mediated by mechanisms involving the adenosine A1 receptor. This study was designed to evaluate quantitatively the effects of ischemic preconditioning on leukocyte-mediated reperfusion… (More)
