Abstract

DARC (Detection of apoptosing retinal cells) is currently being taken to clinical trial as a new diagnostic and screening imaging technique of retinal abnormalities. Initially it will involve patients with primary open angle glaucoma, where apoptosis of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) is an early in event. Early detection of RGC apoptosis and its prevention of this process holds promise as a novel and effective treatment for glaucoma, especially as recent evidence has suggested a reversible element.
