Tidbit Info and Boza…

As you know Boza has a genetic blindness issue!

The veterinarians have given us a human drug also used for dogs in Russia and said, “See if it helps.” First drug in a drop form is Visomitin. Visomitin is a Russian drug invented for eye issues…

indexAn international team of scientists led by researchers from the Lomonosov Moscow State University succeeded to clarify the molecular mechanism of a drug created in Russia and designed to prevent the damaging of cell mitochondria by reactive oxygen species. This work is published in the journal Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity.Recently, Russian researchers, led by Prof. Vladimir P. Skulachev, managed to create an antioxidant drug that selectively accumulates within mitochondria and protects them from oxidative damage. Under the trade name “Visomitin” the drug was approved for treatment of such eye diseases as cataracts and dry eye. Prof. Armen Mulkidjanian of the Faculty of Bioengineering and Bioinformatics of the Lomonosov Moscow State University and the University of Osnabrück, Germany, and his colleagues have explained why very small doses of synthetic antioxidants such as “Visomitin” could give a pronounced therapeutic effect, despite the presence of large quantities of natural mitochondrial antioxidants.

The second drug in a drop form is Quinax a Senile cataract, traumatic cataract, congenital cataract & secondary cataract eye drop treatment. Also for humans…

index1The authors evaluated the efficacy of Quinax in 4 groups of patients with cataract. An observation of–on the average–5 years duration showed that systematic application of the drug prevents the development of the early senile cataract and distinctly slows down the progress of the disease in the group of patients without the risk factors. Non systematic application of the compound also slows down the progress of the condition in the group of early cataract. The drug was ineffective in patients with an advanced diabetic cataract.

Quinax seems to be a Swiss made and or invented product…

Boza gets Visomitin first, one drop per eye twice a day. Then ten minutes after the Visomitin, he gets one drop of Quinax in each eye…

By God in Heaven! Boza has regained some sight!

In two days of use, he has regained just about 20% to 25% of his original sight. While that is not seeing very good, he went from darkness to being able to see me at about 10 to 20 feet given the lighting available. I can now hold up a piece of food and he is able to see my arm move and actually see the food…

Most likely we will have to use these drops the rest of his life, but from what I understand, they correct the genetic damage done by the immune system to a minor degree, by substituting chemicals that are absorbed by the eye during application and these chemicals effect the ability of the remaining receptors and help them work, plus keep them from dying also….Boza has a case of too much oxygen in his eyes and that kills the receptors…

What does this mean?

It means Boza can now see well enough to help himself in many cases, he saw his girlfriend doggy last night and he is dancing his doggy dance as he walks around…

Svetochka said last night, “It makes you realize that sometimes drugs and such are really useful and wonderful!”

Amen to that!
