Description: Scientists have found that baicalein significantly lowers eye pressure and may act as an all-natural treatment for glaucoma. The research is being presented at the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) this week in Denver, Colo. When animals were treated with baicalein, eye pressure was reduced by improving the rate at which fluid drained from the eye. The effect was increased when the drug was administered under nighttime conditions. Baicalein is a natural product found in some plants. Glaucoma is a blinding eye disease where vision is lost due to elevated pressure inside the eye. Current treatments suffer from unwanted side effects, necessitating the search for new treatment options. Abstract Title: Baicalein lowers intraocular pressure and increases outflow facility in mouse eye.
