To examine retinal angiogenesis in the Royal College of Surgeons rat (RCS) serving as a model for ischemic proliferative retinopathies at morphological, proteomic and mRNA levels in order to evaluate the interplay of morphological and molecular changes in the course of the disease. Photoreceptor degeneration was confirmed by histological cross-sections and optical coherence tomography. The capillary retinal network was visualized in RCS rats aged between 14 and 45 days (P14-P45) by perfusion… CONTINUE READING
