ARVO/Pfizer Ophthalmics presentation available online

The ARVO Foundation for Eye Research, a supporting non-profit of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), announced today that the research presented at the inaugural ARVO/Pfizer Ophthalmics Research Institute meeting, "Ocular versus Extraocular Neovascularization: Mirror Images or Vague Resemblances," has been published online and in print in the February 2006 issue of Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science (IOVS). The paper is available free online at http://www.iovs.org/cgi/content/full/47/2/462.

Funded by the Foundation through a grant from Pfizer Ophthalmics, the 2005 meeting is the first in a series of annual conferences designed to improve research and clinical care in areas of ophthalmology related to preventable vision loss and blindness. The First Author of the presentation is Peter A. Campochiaro, M.D., of the Department of Ophthalmology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Md.

"We are delighted to partner with ARVO to facilitate the advancement of science that will help everybody gain a better understanding of specific diseases that lead to blindness," said Robert Besthof, world wide commercial leader, Pfizer Ophthalmology.

Topics and organizers of this meeting were selected by an independent selection committee which reviewed an open call for proposals related to angiogenesis, neovascularization, and vasoproliferation. An international, interdisciplinary panel of expert speakers was then solicited, forming the First ARVO/Pfizer Ophthalmics Research Institute Working Group .

The topic of the 2006 ARVO/Pfizer Ophthalmics Research Institute meeting will be "Aqueous Humor Outflow: What Do We Know, Where Will It Lead Us?" to be held April 28-29, 2006 in Fort Lauderdale, FL. The research presented at this meeting will be published in a future issue of IOVS.
