Özet

ObjectiveOcular diseases affecting retina, such as diabetic retinopathy (DR), age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and glaucoma are the major causes of blindness, and their treatment is still a challenge due to the special structure of the eye. The purpose of this study was to prepare a sustained release DEX conjugate formulation with enhanced ocular permeation using poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrimers and to evaluate the effects of conjugation on DEX release and ocular residence time.
