This study suggests that NF-E2 related factor 2 (Nrf2), a transcription factor, plays a pivotal role in counteracting oxidative stress. Most importantly, a neuroprotective effect against oxidative stress-induced retinal ganglion cell (RGC) death was achieved with the pharmacological Nrf2 activator CDDO-Im. This suggests that pharmacological treatment to up-regulate Nrf2 signaling may be a new therapeutic technique to protect RGCs.
