    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The fundamental role of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) is to provide a barrier between the retina and the underlying choroidal blood supply, thus maintaining retinal homeostatis. It is therefore safe to presume that disruption to this protective barrier will cause profound damage to the underlying retina. This article will look at the effects upon the RPE of various pharmaceutical agents commonly used in treatment of disease.
