An Effective Sema3A Antibody as a Therapy for Optic Nerve Neurodegenerative Diseases

Glaucoma and ischemic or neuro-degenerative diseases of the optic nerve lead to vision loss and blindness. These pathologies are associated with progressive apoptosis of the retinal ganglion cells (RGC), a process which involves expression of Semaphorin 3A protein in the axonal guidance pathways. The identified Sema3A antibody provides a potentially innovative therapeutic tool for these […] Read More >

Repurposing FDA-Approved Drugs for the Treatment of Aniridia

Aniridia is a panocular disease causing progressive severe visual impairment and blindness. The disease is characterized by abnormal development of almost all eye structures, caused by dominantly inherited heterozygous mutations in primarily the PAX6 gene. Although aniridia is a developmental disorder, corneal opacification begins late in childhood, leaving a large time window for therapy. Unfortunately, […] Read More >

Prof. Belkin Michael

Prof. Belkin has been involved in the establishment of many medical start-ups in ophthalmology and other fields. One of his noted contributions was inventing and developing the Ex-PRESS Glaucoma Filtration Device. The ExPRESS, after being sold to global eye care leader Alcon, is now routinely used in glaucoma surgery worldwide. He is now developing his […] Read More >
