Retinal ischemia results in the loss of vision in a number of ocular diseases including acute glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy and retinal vascular occlusion. Recent studies have shown that most of the neuronal death that leads to loss of vision results from apoptosis. XIAP-mediated gene therapy has been shown to protect a number of neuronal types from apoptosis but has never been assessed in retinal neurons following ischemic-induced cell death. We injected an adeno… CONTINUE READING
