Nanoemulsion formulation enhances IOP reduction, study finds

May 07, 2022

In research sponsored by Skye Bioscience Inc., investigators at the University of Mississippi have demonstrated stronger and longer-lasting reduction of intraocular pressure when a proprietary molecule, SBI-100, is formulated as a nanoemulsion containing the mucoadhesive agent Carbopol 940.

Chronic IOP elevation affects cerebrovascular reactivity in murine visual cortex, linked to widespread brain changes

May 02, 2022

Investigators from the New York University Grossman School of Medicine presented data at the ARVO 2022 annual meeting that concluded mapping of the relative cerebrovascular reactivity in the murine brain showed widespread brain changes resulting from the chronic IOP elevation and demonstrates vascular involvement in glaucoma both within and beyond the primary visual pathways.
