Evaluation of Neuroprotective Effect of Minocycline
Evaluation of Minocycline Neuro Protective Role in Retinal Detachment Surgery

This process appears as a incredible and progressive event that will not stop till reattachment of RPE and neurosensory retina happened .

Process of degeneration begins from first hours of RD (Retinal Detachment) establishment Neuroprotection of photoreceptor following RD is a novel and debatable discussion encountered in recent years .

How to stop this phenomena and neuroprotective agent role in this issue are a new interest of researcher.

In the study the investigators are planning to perform a clinical trial to demonstrate the minocycline neuroprotective effect in a double blind design as this impact has been implicated previously in a animal study
