Phoenix MICRON FA reveals more leakage in iron-overload model of diabetic retinopathy

Diabetic retinopathy is a crippling complication of diabetes that can lead to loss of vision, characterized by retinal inflammation, neurodegeneration, and disorganized microvascularization . Oxidative stress is crucial to the development of diabetic retinopathy. Iron is an essential micronutrient but, in excess, can become a highly damaging oxidative species. Excessive iron has been implicated in Parkinson’s

Using the Phoenix MICRON™ IV to examine a potential treatment for disrupted retinal vasculature

Many eye diseases, including age-related macular degeneration, diabetic macular edema, cancer growth, and uveitis, involve disrupted blood vessel growth and leakage. Curing the leakage and growth helps modulate and treat the underlying disease. The Phoenix MICRON™ IV fundus camera allows for clear visualization of the rodent vasculature in bright field and with fluorescein angiography. Mirando
