Elucidation of dysfunctional mechanisms of retinal circulation in the rat models of glaucoma and exploration of novel therapeutic drugs.

In this report, we have attempted to elucidate the mechanisms of retinal circulation and explore novel drugs for the treatment of retinal circulation disorders. We have also introduced here our previous research results on retinal circulation. We reported that the drugs that improved retinal circulation, by intravitreal injection, in the rat model of glaucoma also inhibited retinal nerve injury, thereby representing possibilities that they might be novel candidate drugs for glaucoma prevention and treatment.
