Melatonin Metabolites Protect Human Retinal Pigment Epithelial Cells from Death Caused by Oxidative Stress
“It was concluded that these melatonin metabolites might be useful in treating many retinal conditions linked to the oxidative stress-induced damage.”
Melatonin cytoprotective properties may have practical implications in the treatment of ocular diseases, like glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration.
Melatonin, being an efficient antioxidant with antinitridergic properties, has a promising role in the treatment and management of glaucoma.
Mitochondrial complex I defect induces ROS release and degeneration in trabecular meshwork cells of POAG patients: protection by antioxidants
The authors present strong evidence that mitochondrial complex I defects are the major source of oxidative stress in TM cells of patients with POAG. Antioxidants such as Vit E and NAC are likely candidates to reduce ROS production and as complementary agents in the treatment of glaucoma.
Current evidence suggests that melatonin may act as a protective agent in ocular conditions such as photo-keratitis, cataract, glaucoma and retinopathy.
Oxidative stress in the human trabecular meshwork clinically correlated with primary open-angle glaucoma
Study evaluated intensity of oxidative molecular damage and its clinical correlation to intraocular pressure. It found that oxidative stress could induce human trabecular meshwork degeneration, favoring an increase in IOP, leading to Glaucoma…
Independent Study finds specific Amino Acids and Anti-Oxidants provide targeted support for those who suffer from IOP and Glaucoma.
This independent study finds that the antioxidants vitamin E and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) may reduce the progression of glaucoma. Additionally noted is that effectively reducing or even reversing oxidation may facilitate a healing response in the trabecular meshwork or outflow pathway in the eyes of glaucoma patients.
Study finds that Melatonin also offers a promising role in the safe treatment and management of Glaucoma
“Data indicates that melatonin, being an efficient antioxidant with antinitridergic properties, has a promising role in the treatment and management of glaucoma.”
