Hematopoietic stem cells in vascular development and ocular neovascularization

Chapter

Abstract

  • Neovascular diseases of the eye include retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR), and the exudative or wet form of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD). Together these diseases affect all age groups and are the leading causes of vision impairment in developed nations [77]. © 2007 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
