    TAG Episode 31 - 6Jun2019 LEWIS Rick Rho Kinase Inhibitors: a new class of drugs (AAC)

    TAG Episode 31 - 6Jun2019 LEWIS Rick Rho Kinase Inhibitors: a new class of drugs (AAC)

    The goal of the late Dave Epstein was to find a drug that treats the cause of glaucoma by improving trabecular meshwork outflow. After many years of trying, Aerie Pharmaceuticals was formed and refined a Rho Kinase inhibitor called Netarsudil. In April 2018 this came to market as Rhopressa and March 2019, combined with latanoprost, as Roclatan. Today I’m talking with Rick Lewis, a glaucoma colleague based in Sacramento and Chief Medical Officer for Aerie Pharmaceuticals.

    TAG Episode 30 - 5Nov2018 JOHNSTONE Murray Pulsatile Flow (AAC)

    TAG Episode 30 - 5Nov2018 JOHNSTONE Murray Pulsatile Flow (AAC)

    In this episode, I talk with Murray Johnstone from Seattle about pulsatile flow through the Trabecular Meshwork and collector channels. We discuss the imaging improvements over the years that have made this possible including the latest phase-based OCT scans that result in nanometre resolution instead of the micrometre resolution of spectral domain scans that most of us are using in clinical practice.

    I sat down with Chris Johsnon at a recent American Glaucoma Society meeting to discuss some of my pet peeves about visual field testing and what lies on the horizon. Chris is Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Iowa and a world renown Perimetry expert.

    TAG Episode 27 - 1Mar2017: Harbin Ethics in Medical Tx (AAC Enhanced)

    In this episode, Tom Harbin, from Eye Consultants of Atlanta, and I discuss ethical issues in the medical treatment of glaucoma. This includes generic vs brand name drugs, the need to shop around for the best price, and looking out for talks from so-called Key Opinion Leaders.

    TAG Episode 26 - 29Jan2017: Wright Tx to Outcome Gap (AAC enhanced)

    TAG Episode 26 - 29Jan2017: Wright Tx to Outcome Gap (AAC enhanced)

    In this episode, I talk with Tracy Wright, now based at Kaiser Permanente in Washington DC. He was at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami when we recorded this conversation. The implications immediately effected how I look at visual fields in my patients but I have yet to see further studies that support what we discussed, namely that visual fields continue to progress for a long time even once the stimulus that led to the initial glaucoma damage has been removed, likely due to apoptosis. The findings you are about to here may be shocking. Please write to me with your comments. -------------------------------------------------- Production information: This episode was recorded live in March 2014 during the Annual Meeting of the American Glaucoma Society in Coronado, CA, using two Shure SM58 microphones with a Marantz PMD661 digital recorder. Mixing and sound levelling were FINALLY performed in January 2017 on a MacBook Pro using Levelator, and Hindenberg Journalist Pro software. Narration was overdubbed using a Heil PR40 Microphone with Journalist Pro. Opinions expressed in this podcast are those of the speakers and are not intended to be taken as the standard of care for glaucoma treatment. Please always weigh the complete clinical picture and involve patients with any decisions in their care. -------------------------------------------------- Robert M Schertzer, MD, MEd, FRCSC podcast@iguy.org Twitter - http://twitter.com/robschertzer or http://iguy.tv/twitter Blog - http://wholelottarob.com or http://iguy.tv/blog Although I closed down the West Coast Glaucoma Center after moving to the east coast in the Fall of 2013, the website is still alive as a resource for eye information at http://westcoastglaucoma.com or http://iguy.tv/office Theme music "Middle East Gold" ©Daniel Schertzer 2010 and published by Les Prods DOSWA Enr © 2017 DOSWA Prods Enr/Robert M Schertzer MD.
