Researchers have found that mice with retinopathy (a condition that causes tissue damage and eventual blindness) have been cured by one injection of angiopoietin-1. This injection causes the release of a protein called fibronectin. Fibronectin helps in the growth of blood vessels, repairing the tissue damage down by retinopathy. Researchers will continue their work towards applying it to humans. (Read more…)
