A Novel Use of Specialized Pro-resolving Mediators to Treat Glaucoma
Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness. This study aims to identify a novel molecule that would suppress immune inflammation and lead to protect the retinal ganglion cells from death and preserve vision. Further, this study will identify potent specialized pro-resolving mediators that would suppress neuroinflammation and investigate its neuroprotection effect in mouse models of glaucoma. The proposed study will shed light on the development of a novel approach to treat glaucoma.
