Cataract, Myopathy and Keratitis: Possible use of Nanoparticles
16 Sep 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Ch. Mohan Rao
Small heat shock proteins are critical for several cellular functions. Failure of heat shock proteins, thus, can cause compromised cellular activity leading to disease. Fungal Keratitis is an eye dieses that can be treated with anti fungal drugs. Availability of the drug at the site of action is less than satisfactory. Some times cornea might be damaged compromising the vision. We have investigated fungal infection and consequent changes. We have identified a few biomolecules that might be of value in treating fungal keratitis, minimizing the corneal damage.
