New frontiers of diabetic research in the eye

Edited by: Prof. Jianhua Wang

As one of the major complications of diabetes mellitus (DM), diabetic retinopathy (DR) is one of the leading causes of new cases of blindness worldwide. DR is a multifactorial disease, which potentially leads to irreversible retinal damage if timely and effective treatments are not in place. This thematic series focuses on the recent applications of retinal imaging, nutritional therapies and medical Foods as well as other novel research on DR. It aims to publish review articles and original research of the latest discovery in the field.

This series was published in Eye and Vision.

  1. Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is a form of microangiopathy. Reducing oxidative stress in the mitochondria and cell membranes decreases ischemic injury and end-organ damage to the retina. New approaches are needed,...
