Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The sheep lens culture system has been developed as an alternative, controlled model of cataract formation allowing the measurement of early changes in cataractogenesis and the ability to test the efficacy of calpain inhibitors in preventing cataracts. The purpose of this experiment was to confirm a causal link between calpain activation and lens opacification.
