Real-time imaging of apoptosis in patients with glaucoma

Retinal cell apoptosis occurs in many ocular neurodegenerative conditions including glaucoma—the major cause of irreversible blindness worldwide. Using a new imaging technique called DARC (detection of apoptosing retinal cells) researchers assess if annexin 5 labelled with fluorescent dye DY-776 could be used safely in humans to identify retinal cell apoptosis.
