Retinopathy of prematurity

24 February 2018 in In Vivo

This model is based on the neonatal mouse exposure to hyperoxia during retinal vasculature development (Smith et al., 1994). Hyperoxia causes depletion of capillaries in the central part of retina and upon return to normoxic conditions leads to ischemia and proliferative retinopathy.

Indications: diabetes, retinal ischemia, retinopathy of prematurity (ROP)
