An Old Drug Finds New Purpose Against Retinal Neovascularization

Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute

Researchers at Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP) have found that the anti-malaria drug amodiaquine inhibits the apelin receptor protein, which helps drive the vascularization behind diabetic retinopathy, wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and other conditions. Because the drug has been approved to treat malaria for decades, it could move relatively quickly through the pipeline to help patients. The study was published in the journal PLOS ONE.

Study Links BAP1 Protein to Tumor Suppression in Kidney, Eye, Bile Duct and Mesothelioma Cancers

University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center

Researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have shown how BRCA-associated protein 1 (BAP1) serves as a tumor suppressor gene in kidney, eye, bile duct, mesothelioma and other cancers by regulating a form of cell death called ferroptosis, opening up a potential new area of therapy research. Findings from the study, led by Boyi Gan, Ph.D., associate professor, Department of Experimental Radiation Oncology, were published in the Sept. 10 online issue of Nature Cell Biology.

Scientists Identify Weak Point in Deadly Eye Melanoma

Washington University in St. Louis

A natural plant compound exploits a newly identified Achilles’ heel in a cancer of the eye, uveal melanoma. In human cancer cells growing in the lab, the compound shuts down the overactive signaling that drives uveal melanoma cell growth, according to researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

Attention Network Plays Key Role in Restoring Vision After Brain Damage

Institute for Medical Psychology, Otto-v.-Guericke University Magdeburg

Magdeburg, Germany, September 4, 2018 - About one third of patients who have suffered a stroke end up with low vision, losing up to half of their visual field. This partial blindness was long considered irreversible, but recent studies have shown that vision training after optic nerve and brain damage can help restore or improve vision.
