Suppression of choroidal neovascularization by N-acetyl-cysteine in mice.

Abstract

PURPOSE N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) is a potent antioxidant known to be a precursor of glutathione. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of NAC in the development of choroidal neovascularization (CNV). METHODS CNV was induced in C57BL/6 mice by laser photocoagulation of the ocular fundus. Mice were injected intraperitoneally with NAC or… (More)
