Abstract

A single intravitreous injection of a large dose of hrIGF-1 produces a retinal microangiopathy that has a prolonged time of onset and remains stable from 2 to 6 months after injection. Some aspects of this angiopathy resemble diabetic retinopathy, suggesting growth factor effects in the morphologic vascular changes of diabetes.
