Promising treatment for retinal inflammation studied with the Phoenix MICRON™ OCT and exclusive analysis software Insight 2D

In their paper, “Connexin43 Mimetic Peptide Improves Retinal Function and Reduces Inflammation in a Light-Damaged Albino Rat Model,” Guo et al promoted neuroretinal survival in a light damage paradigm by blocking the Connexin43 hemichannels. Using the Phoenix MICRON OCT to examine the structure of the retina at precise retinal locations as shown by the bright


RPE mutations lead to retinal hypopigmentation, vasculature changes, and decreased function

In their paper, “The microphthalmia-associated transcription factor (Mitf) gene and its role in regulating eye function,” García-Llorca et al use the Phoenix MICRON™ IV to examine the outer eye appearance, retinal pigmentation, and retinal vasculature through fluorescein angiography to study several different mouse mutants. Combined with electroretinography and histology, the fundus images tell a story
