Example text

While laser photocoagulation and transgenic animal models are the most extensively studied, many others have been used and will be discussed briefly. Retinal vein occlusion in primates and pigs has been studied, but the incidence of retinal neovascularization has been low (90,91). Intravitreal injection of V-2 carcinoma cells in rabbits was found to cause retinal neovascularization, but the model has not been extensively used since the neovascularization can take 100 days to develop (92). Retinal detachment and intravitreal injection of fibroblasts in rabbits resulted in retinal neovascularization (93,94).

One would not expect these vessels to make an abrupt regression, which would be expected to increase the amount of ischemia present. However, this growth pattern is analogous to a wound healing response (Fig. 4). There is a strong link between ischemia and VEGF mediated angiogenesis. Patients with ARMD may have decreased blood flow as compared with those who do not have ARMD, but the decrease in blood flow has yet to be firmly linked with a significant amount of ischemia. In addition, the growth patterns of CNV, the regression of active neovascularization later in the disease process, many of the histopathologic findings, and many findings in animal models are not explainable by ischemia.
