ThromboGenics | Date: 2013-03-14

A method of treating or preventing a disorder, or a complication of a disorder, of an eye of a subject comprising contacting a vitreous and/or aqueous humor with a composition comprising a truncated form of plasmin comprising a catalytic domain of plasmin (TPCD). TPCDs include, but are not limited to, miniplasmin, microplasmin and derivatives and variants thereof. The methods of the invention can be used to reduce the viscosity of the vitreous, liquefy the vitreous, induce posterior vitreous detachment, reduce hemorrhagic blood from the eye, clear or reduce materials toxic to the eye, clear or reduce intraocular foreign substances from the eye, increase diffusion of a composition administered to an eye, reduce extraretinal neovascularization and any combinations thereof. The method can be used in the absence of, or as an adjunct to, vitrectomy.

The invention relates to variants of plasminogen and plasmin comprising one or more point mutations in the catalytic domain which reduce or prevent autocatylic destruction of the protease activity plasmin. Compositions, uses and methods of using said variants of plasminogen and plasmin are also disclosed.


The present invention is directed to a method of deriving pluripotent embryonic stem cells from mouse blastocysts or from primordial germ cells from a post-implantation mouse embryo, or of maintaining or growing pluripotent embryonic stem cells from a mouse, or of expanding human hematopoietic stem cells or human hematopoietic precursor cells. The methods include the step of cultivating the stem cells or precursor cells for at least one passage in a culture medium preconditioned by the rabbit fibroblast cell line Rab9 (ATCC catalogue CRL1414) and containing less than 0.1 ng/ml Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF).


The current invention relates to the improvement of trabeculectomy surgery. The improvement more specifically resides in an extended lifetime of the sclera-corneal drainage channel created by trabeculectomy surgery. The improvement is obtained by post-surgical administration of a plasmin or active derivative thereof in the form of topical eye drops alone, by anterior chamber injection alone, or by any combination of these
