Animal models of exfoliation syndrome, now and future.
J Glaucoma 2014 Oct-Nov; 23(8 Suppl 1):S68-72.
At present, no animal models fully embody exfoliation syndrome or exfoliation glaucoma. Both genetic and environmental factors appear critical for disease manifestation, and both must be considered when generating animal models. Because mice provide a powerful mammalian platform for modeling complex disease, this paper focuses on mouse models of exfoliation syndrome and exfoliation glaucoma.
