Title
(EN) METHODS AND COMPOSITIONS FOR PRESERVING RETINAL GANGLION CELLS
(FR) MÉTHODES ET COMPOSITIONS PERMETTANT DE PRÉSERVER LES CELLULES GANGLIONNAIRES DE LA RÉTINE
Abstract
(EN)
Provided are methods and compositions for maintaining the viability of retinal ganglion cells in a subject with an ocular disorder including, for example, glaucoma and optic nerve injury. The viability of the retinal ganglion cells can be preserved by administering a necrosis inhibitor either alone or in combination with an apoptosis inhibitor to a subject having an eye with the ocular condition. The compositions, when administered, maintain the viability of the cells and/or promote axon regeneration, thereby minimizing the loss of vision or visual function associated with the ocular disorder.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne des méthodes et des compositions permettant de préserver la viabilité des cellules ganglionnaires de la rétine chez un sujet souffrant d'une affection oculaire et, notamment, d'un glaucome ou d'une lésion du nerf optique. La viabilité des cellules ganglionnaires de la rétine peut être préservée grâce à l'administration, à un sujet dont l'un des yeux est atteint de ladite affection oculaire, d'un inhibiteur de la nécrose soit seul, soit en association avec un inhibiteur de l'apoptose. Les compositions, suite à leur administration, préservent la viabilité des cellules et/ou favorisent la régénération axonale, ce qui minimise la perte de vision ou de fonction visuelle associée à ladite affection oculaire.
