What researchers are saying...

“We developed the optic nerve/osmotic pump infusion technique to deliver soluble ligands, agonists, or antagonists directly into the optic nerve.The advantages of this technique are that the infused drugs remain largely confined within the experimental nerve, reducing the impact of potential systemic side effects; mere placement of the catheter and subsequent infusion of the vehicle solution do not promote lesion-like changes within the optic nerve…” Rodgers et al., GLIA 41:180-190; 2003.
