RETINA MEDICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL



The research group Retina Medical and Experimental of the Department of Radiology and Physical Medicine, Ophthalmology and Ortorhinolaryngology, Faculty of Medicine, is specialized in the studies of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and the effects of VEGF antagonists on macular edemas and venous obstructions in individuals suffering from diabetes. Research is done with the help of experimental models, e.g., a glaucoma model for the analysis of apoptosis (programmed cell death) or the use of VEGF immunohistochemistry for the study of cortical neurodegeneration. In a third line of investigation, again in the context of diabetes, research is focused on immunohistochemical studies in conjunctival cytology in order to correlate the results with stages of retinopathy. The group has a profound experience in medical research and based on this expertise the members publish the journal Oculística Andaluza of the Andalusian Ophthalmological Society.
