Purpose: The goal of this study was the clinical evaluation of the neuroprotective properties of a dietary supplementation of forskolin, rutin and vitamins B1 and B2 on retinal ganglion cell activity. To this purpose, we focused both on IOP and the Pattern Electroretinogram (PERG). PERG is known to be significantly altered in glaucoma, and a decrease of PERG signal amplitude is an early sign of glaucoma progression. Methods: 45 patients affected by POAG were evaluated in this study. Patients… CONTINUE READING
