Most medications center on bringing down pressure in the eye (otherwise called intraocular weight). Be that as it may, in numerous patients, the malady intensifies even after intraocular weight comes back to ordinary.
They additionally distinguished the objective of the T cells: warm stun proteins, fabricated by both human cells and the microscopic organisms dwelling inside us.
