Abstract:The results of this study demonstrate, for the first time, increased vitreous protein levels prior to the development of neovascularization in the newborn rat model of ROP. In addition, developmental changes in vitreous protein levels were identified. The role of developmental and pathologic alterations in the blood-ocular barriers in this study is discussed.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
