|Title:||The effects of corticosteroid drugs on the visual function of zebrafish||Authors:||Reynolds, Alison; Lau E How, Kelvin||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/12595||Date:||1-Apr-2018||Online since:||2021-11-09T12:57:28Z||Abstract:||Introduction: Glaucoma, a leading cause of blindness, is a heterogenous eye condition characterized by gradual loss of visual acuity due to degeneration of retinal ganglion cells (1). Glaucoma is an off-target effect of corticosteroids when administered intraocularly for treatment of some ocular indications (2). This study uses zebrafish to study whether a glaucoma-type disease is induced by treatment with corticosteroids by assessing the effects on retinal histology and visual function.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||British Pharmacological Society||Journal:||pA2 Online||Volume:||18||Issue:||1||Start page:||167P||End page:||167P||Keywords:||Glaucoma; Corticosteroids; Visual behaviour||Other versions:||http://www.pa2online.org/abstract/abstract.jsp?abid=33565
