Physiogenex, Iris Pharma and CLEA Japan will be presenting the features of diabetic retinopathy in the Uni-Nephrectomized SDT Fatty Rat, a novel Type 2 diabetic model of Diabetic Nephropathy, at the Association for Research in Vision and Ophtalmology 2018 conference (ARVO 2018) in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.

Through their partnership, Physiogenex, Iris Pharma and CLEA Japan Inc., have developed and validated a novel rat model for evaluating drugs targeting diabetic retinopathy.

Within only 10 weeks, this obese and type 2 diabetic rat model, not only develops advanced kidney complications, but also features of diabetic retinopathy, that will be described in the poster presentation scheduled on May the 1st, 3:30pm to 5:15pm, poster#A0190, in the ARVO 2018 Exhibit Hall.

This study results will be presented by Dr. François Briand, Director of Research and Business Development at Physiogenex.
