Retina-specific expression of PDGF-B versus PDGF-A: vascular versus nonvascular proliferative retinopathy.

Abstract

PURPOSE Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) has been implicated in vascular proliferative retinopathies, such as diabetic retinopathy, and in nonvascular retinopathies, such as proliferative vitreoretinopathy. Traction retinal detachment is a central feature of both types of disease. Hemizygous rhodopsin promoter/PDGF-B (rho/PDGF-B) transgenic mice… (More)
