Studies on the retina of the diabetic db/db mouse. I. Endothelial cell-pericyte ratio.


The genetically diabetic db/db mouse is a model of type-2 diabetes, where nephropathy and neuropathy, but not retinopathy were observed. The authors studied the retinas (trypsin digestion technique) of 16 db/db mice and 16 age-matched litter mates (db/m; controls), divided into five age groups.
