Title : Intraocular Micro-implant Containing Tissue Plasminogen Activator (TPA)


This intrascleral micro-implant with Tissue plasminogen activator (abbreviated tPA or PLAT), contains is a protein involved in the breakdown of blood clots. It is a serine protease (EC found on endothelial cells, the cells that line the blood vessels. As an enzyme, it catalyzes the conversion of plasminogen to plasmin, the major enzyme responsible for clot breakdown. Because it works on the clotting system, tPA (such as alteplase, reteplase, and tenecteplase) is used in clinical medicine is used to treat emboli, vitreous and/or retinal hemorrhages.  
tPA may be manufactured using recombinant biotechnology techniques. tPA created this way may be referred to as recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA). This intraocular microimplant containing tPA is extremely important for treating severe retinal hemorrhages, preretinal and vitreous hemorrhages, the latter of which can cause vitreoretinal traction and retinal detachment due to traction.

Audience Take Away:

  • New treatment techniques for serious retinal diseases
  • Recent research and innovation studies in medical nanotechnology
  • The new era in regenerative medicine
  • They will be able to use what they learn by acquiring the new technologies that are already on the world market.
  • Attendees will be able to give new treatment options, which did not exist before.
  • Surely, this will drive to take as a basis to continue advancing in research in this area of ??medicine.
  • We have solutions within reach of our hands, which a few years ago we did not have and retinal diseases remained without a solution.
  • As mentioned above, we have intraocular techniques and devices that until recently were not on the market, therefore, a range of possibilities has been opened to offer new treatments for retinal diseases.
