A bio-functional polymer that prevents retinal scarring through modulation of NRF2 signalling pathway.

Nat Commun 2022 May 19;13(1):2796. Epub 2022 May 19.

Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB), Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore, Singapore.

One common cause of vision loss after retinal detachment surgery is the formation of proliferative and contractile fibrocellular membranes. This aberrant wound healing process is mediated by epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and hyper-proliferation of retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells. Current treatment relies primarily on surgical removal of these membranes. Read More

Curr Eye Res 2022 May 16:1-7. Epub 2022 May 16.

Regional Ophthalmological Center, Volyn Regional Clinical Hospital, Lutsk, Ukraine.

Purpose: To construct a realistic physical model of viscoelastic retinal stretching and, on its basis, derive a universal quantitative criterion of irreversible retinal deformations during age-related macular degeneration.
