    Exp Eye Res 74:523-35. 2002
    ..Their effects, however, can be greatly augmented by other growth factors that alone exert little or no action. Therefore, diabetic retinal neovascularization may result from the additive or synergistic action of several growth factors...

    Raquel Castellon
    Ophthalmology Research Laboratories, Burns and Allen Research Institute, Cedars Sinai Medical Center, University of California Los Angeles Medical School Affiliate, Los Angeles, California, USA
    Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 43:2758-66. 2002
    ..Because TN-C may promote neovascularization, its potential angiogenic effects were examined in vitro in normal and diabetic retinal endothelial cells (RECs)...

    Alexander V Ljubimov
    Ophthalmology Research Laboratories, Burns and Allen Research Institute, Cedars Sinai Medical Center, 8700 Beverly Boulevard, D 2025, Los Angeles, CA 90048, USA
    Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 45:4583-91. 2004
    ..The purpose of the study was to characterize signaling intermediates involved in angiogenic responses of retinal endothelial cells (RECs) to the extracellular matrix and growth factors, by using specific inhibitors...

    Neurochem Res 28:883-91. 2003
    ..These in vitro findings provide evidence that cholesterol oxides can directly damage cultured retinal and RPE cells. The oxysterol-induced oxidative stress in these cells may be a factor in the pathology of retinal degenerative diseases...
