I read “Diabetic macular edema: pathophysiology and novel therapeutic targets” published July 2015 by Das et al. This article is interesting because it outlines the role that inflammation plays in the pathogenesis of diabetic macular edema (DME) and discusses the novel therapies in this disease area.
