Neurodegeneration in retinal diseases and new strategies in its inhibition
Acta Ophthalmologica, 08/10/2012
Rehak M et al. – In the ischemic retinal diseases the neuroprotective role of neuroglobin has been shown. Neuroglobin overexpression plays a protective role against retinal ischemia reperfusion injury due to decreasing of mitochondrial oxidative stress–mediated apoptosis.
