The retina is a thin layer of tissue that lines the inside of the back of the eye with a function to convert light into neural signals to the brain for visual recognition.
Retinal damage is a condition characterized by damage of the thin layer of tissue of retina caused by many underlying problems.
Although it is not common, retinal damage, however, is a leading cause of macular degeneration in older adults.
The late stage of retinal damage has been associated with vision impairment and reduced quality of life in patients.
Macular degeneration is a medical condition caused by the deterioration of the small central portion of the retina, known as the macula in inducing gradually reduced vision, a leading cause of severe, irreversible vision loss in people over age 60.
The root has been used in traditional and Chinese medicine for the treatment of dyspepsia, gastroparesis, constipation, edema, difficult urination, colic, etc.
Researchers on finding a natural compound for the treatment of retinal damage with no side effects compared to chemo medication examined the anti-lung cancer of bioactive compounds isolated from the ginger.
In seeking a natural ingredient for the prevention and treatment of retinal damage, researchers examined the synergistic effect purple waxy corn and ginger (PWCG) against diabetic eye complications.
The study included diabetic rats induced by streptozotocin, an antibiotic with the blood glucose levels >250 mg·dL(-1) orally given the extract at doses of 50, 100, and 200 mg/kg·BW(-1) for 10 weeks.
