The activity of macrophages is implicated in the progression of retinal pathologies such as atrophic age-related macular degeneration (AMD), where they accumulate among the photoreceptor layer and subretinal space.

While these qualities make chemokines a potential therapeutic target in curtailing...[Show more]
