Regional pathology in glaucoma--an overlooked link to neuroprotective strategies.

Abstract

Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) is the second commonest cause of blindness in the world. It is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by retinal ganglion cell loss. The molecular mechanism leading to glaucoma damage is unclear. Understanding the pathways that favor neuronal survival plus those that predispose to neuronal demise in POAG may have direct… (More)
