New Study Pinpoints Biochemical Mechanism Underlying Fibrosis Following Glaucoma Surgery


Findings Suggest VEGF Inhibition via TGF-β1 May Be Beneficial, Reports The American Journal of Pathology The most common cause of failure after glaucoma surgery is scarring at the surgical site, so researchers are actively looking for ways to minimize or prevent scar formation. Previous work had suggested that vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) activates fibrosis, whereas VEGF inhibition results in reduced scar formation and better surgical results… (Source: Health News from Medical News Today)
