The inhibition of corneal vascularization in rabbits

American Journal of Ophthalmology
S B GorenE Choromokos


A single subconjunctival injection of 250 microgram of a partially purified extract of bovine aorta, administered immediately before or after silver nitrate injury to the cornea, markedly inhibited corneal vascularization in the rabbit eye. We believe the active molecule is a protease inhibitor that prevents the potential source of new vessels from proliferating and invading the diseased cornea.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
