Suppression of laser-induced choroidal neovascularization by subconjunctival injection of 9alpha-fluoromedroxyprogesterone acetate (FMPA), an anti-angiogenic agent, in rats.

Abstract

9alpha-Fluoromedroxyprogesterone acetate (FMPA) is a synthetic analog of medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA). FMPA exhibited more potent anti-tumor and anti-angiogenic activities in some assay systems than the parent agent, MPA. Exudative age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is characterized by choroidal neovascularization (CNV). Anecortave acetate, an… (More)
