Rhokinase Inhibitors for Endothelial Decompensation
Cornea is a unique structure with varied physiological mechanism working for its transparency and integrity. Orientation of collagen, arrangements of keratocytes, fluid transport mechanism, endothelial cell function and proteoglycan proportions are some of the factors which contribute to its physical nature. Conditions which hinder the above normal systematic functions are known to affect corneal transparency. Corneal endothelial cell is one vital structure which is highly efficient in preserving the vitality of the corneal layers.
