Natural Protein May Help to Prevent Glaucoma, Australian Study
A team of researchers from Macquarie University, Australia, has found that a natural protein called neuropepsin plays a key role in retinal health but this protein is inactivated in glaucoma.
The researchers performed an analysis which demonstrated that neuropepsin is deactivated in response to oxidative stress that could be triggered by environmental factors like air pollution.
Lead author of the study Dr. Vivek from the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Macquarie University Gupta believes: “This long-term collaborative study has opened up a completely new line of investigation in glaucoma research that will lead to new treatment avenues for the disease.”
