  • Background—Choroidal neovascularization (CNV) is a critical pathogenesis in age-related macular degeneration, the most common cause of blindness in the developed countries. The aim of the current study was to investigate the effect of lutein supplementation on the development of the murine model of laser-induced CNV together with underlying molecular mechanisms. Methods and Results—Mice were orally pretreated with lutein daily from 3 days before laser photocoagulation untill the end of the… CONTINUE READING
