We have functionally and morphologically characterized the retina and optic nerve after neural progenitor cell transplants to healthy rat eyes and eyes damaged by acute elevation of intraocular pressure (IOP). Green fluorescent protein-expressing adult rat hippocampal progenitor cells (AHPCs) were transplanted by intravitreal injection into healthy eyes and eyes damaged with acute ocular hypertension. Pupil light reflexes (PLR) and electroretinograms (ERGs) were recorded preoperatively and… CONTINUE READING
