Critical Role of Retinal Pigment Epithelium in The Pathogenesis of Diabetic Retinopathy
A Novel Discovery in Diabetic Retinopathy was made by Dr. Alireza Ghaffarieh, which was presented at the University of Wisconsin.
In diabetes, a significant amount of glucose enters the retina via the Retinal Pigment Epithelium (AKA RPE), which is consistent with the presence of an appreciable amount of Glucose-6-Phosphatase (G-6-Pase) in the RPE. Therefore non-competitive inhibition of G-6-Pase can offer protection against the Pathogenesis of Diabetic Retinopathy…
