  • Publication number: 20210220450
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods of treatment for an intraocular pressure (IOP)-associated condition in a subject, that include administering to the subject an effective amount of a tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) therapeutic agent. In one embodiment, the IOP-associated condition is glaucoma. The administration of a tPA therapeutic agent can be an extended administration intended to cause a reduction in IOP in the subject for a period of at least one day to a year or more, relative to IOP levels in the subject prior to administration of the tPA therapeutic agent. The tPA therapeutic agent can be, for example, tPA, a tPA derivative, a small molecule direct or indirect tPA agonist, or a gene therapy vector.

  • Patent number: 11061093
    Abstract: A dynamic phantom for use with a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) device is described. In one example, the dynamic phantom includes an outer housing, an inner cylinder including a removable divider, and a gearbox that can rotate the cylinder, all of which are made from fMRI-compatible materials. The divider forms longitudinal compartments inside the cylinder that can each contain a contrast material. When the cylinder contains contrast materials having at least two different concentrations, and a space between the cylinder and the housing also contains a contrast material, rotation of the cylinder produces biomimetic hemodynamic signals that may be detected by the fMRI device.
