Healthy Diet, Healthy Eyes

THURSDAY, April 20, 2018 -- Healthy eating may help preserve your vision as you age, eye experts say. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) damages the macula (a small area near the center of the retina, located on the inside back layer of the...

Randomized controlled trials are the gold standard in medical research, providing evidence of the efficacy of a treatment in well-defined patient populations. By contrast, real-world studies explore the effectiveness of treatments in routine clinical practices, often with diverse patient populations. While both randomized controlled trials and real-world studies contribute to the understanding of the benefits and risks of therapies, they generate different types of data and serve complementary purposes.

Ocular Therapeutix (NSDQ:OCUL) said today that it dosed the first patient in a study of its OTX-TKI tyrosine kinase inhibitor implant. The Phase I trial is slated to assess the bioresorbable device’s safety, durability and tolerability in people with wet age-related macular degeneration. Get the full story at our sister site, Drug Delivery Business News. The post Ocular Therapeutix doses first wet-AMD patient in implant trial appeared first on MassDevice.

Abstract Ocular neovascular diseases are featured by abnormal angiogenesis in the eye, and they seriously threaten the human visual health. These diseases include proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR), age-related macular degeneration (AMD), retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), and retinal vein occlusion (RVO). In fact, ocular neovascular diseases represent the leading causes of vision impairment and blindness worldwide. Ocular neovascularization, the process of pathological vessel formation in eye, underlies ocular neovascular diseases. Cytokines have important regulatory roles in neovascularization through immun...

, Kotler ML Abstract Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a multifactorial retinal disease characterized by a progressive loss of central vision. Retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) degeneration is a critical event in AMD. It has been associated to A2E accumulation, which sensitizes RPE to blue light photodamage. Mitochondrial quality control mechanisms have evolved to ensure mitochondrial integrity and preserve cellular homeostasis. Particularly, mitochondrial dynamics involve the regulation of mitochondrial fission and fusion to preserve a healthy mitochondrial network. The present study aims to clarify the ce...
