Prostaglandins in ocular pathophysiology with special reference to diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.

Abstract

This report reviews evidence for influences of prostaglandins (PGs) on intraocular pressure in glaucoma and on the progressive vascular and blood cell dysfunction in diabetes mellitus, of which retinopathy is a manifestation, and includes a brief outline of evidence for roles of PGs in ocular inflammation. Sequences in pathways of biosynthesis and conversion of PGs are summarized, and PG assay methods are evaluated briefly.
