Systemic Administration of an Apelin Receptor Agonist Prevents NMDA-Induced Loss of Retinal Neuronal Cells in Mice.

Neurochem Res 2020 Apr 1;45(4):752-759. Epub 2020 Jan 1.

Laboratory of Pharmacotherapeutics, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Setsunan University, 45-1, Nagaotoge-cho, Hirakata, Osaka, 573-0101, Japan.

Glutamate excitotoxicity via N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors is thought to be a factor involved in the loss of retinal neuronal cells, including retinal ganglion cells, in retinal diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and acute angle closure glaucoma. Herein we report the protective effect of systemic administration of ML233, an apelin receptor agonist, against retinal neuronal cell death induced by the intravitreal injection of NMDA into mice. Intraperitoneal administration of ML233 prevented the NMDA-induced reduction in the amplitude of scotopic threshold responses (STR), which mainly reflect the activity of the retinal ganglion cells.

Acute angle closure glaucoma.

Br J Hosp Med (Lond) 2019 Dec;80(12):C174-C179

Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, Princess Alexandra Eye Pavilion, Edinburgh.

Acute angle closure is an emergent ophthalmic condition that develops as a result of an obstructed outflow of aqueous humour between the anterior and posterior chambers of the eye, leading to a sudden rise in intraocular pressure and secondary optic neuropathy if left untreated. The most common primary cause is a pupillary block in patients with pre-existing narrow angles, such as those who are long-sighted. However, awareness should be raised to identify secondary causes of angle closure, including the use of commonly prescribed medications. Read More

Complete Anterior Capsule Phimosis following Cataract Surgery in a Patient with a History of Retinopathy of Prematurity, Nystagmus, and a Narrow Angle.

Case Rep Ophthalmol 2019 May-Aug;10(2):274-280. Epub 2019 Aug 13.

John A. Burns School of Medicine, University of Hawaii, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.

The authors present a case of complete anterior capsule phimosis and vision decline which developed 4 weeks postoperatively in the right eye after uncomplicated cataract surgery. Prior ocular history included retinopathy of prematurity in both eyes, acute angle closure glaucoma in the left eye, prophylactic laser peripheral iridotomy for a narrow angle in the right eye, and nystagmus in both eyes. This condition was addressed by surgically releasing the anterior capsule with microscissors to open the pupillary space which had been completely obscured by the anterior capsule, also causing the haptics of the 1-piece intraocular lens to deform.

Eye (Lond) 2020 Jan 24;34(1):40-50. Epub 2019 Oct 24.

Glaucoma Service, Moorfields Eye Hospital, City Road, London, EC1V 2PD, UK.

Angle-closure glaucoma is an aggressive condition that causes millions to become blind worldwide. This review explores the use of prophylactic laser peripheral iridotomy (PI) in patients classified as primary angle-closure suspects (PACS), and additionally, the use of clear lens exchange as a primary treatment option in established angle-closure disease with or without glaucoma. As PI has a strong prophylactic effect in fellow eyes of patients who have had an acute attack, its use has been widely adopted in those patients classified as PACS, but with limited evidence to support this.
