A one-day time course of flibanserin can preserve retinal morphology and function.

Abstract

<p><b>(A i)</b> A spider graph representing average right-eye receptor plus values demonstrates that a single dose of 6 mg/kg flibanserin or greater can significantly preserve retinal morphology to thicknesses comparable to naïve mice. The gray area indicates ± 2 SD of the naïve averaged data. (<b>A ii, iii</b>) Receptor plus thicknesses, with each dot representing average right and left eye thickness from one mouse, demonstrate that 6 mg/kg flibanserin provides morphological protection in the <b>(A ii)</b> temporal quadrant and the <b>(A iii)</b> nasal quadrant. Group averages are represented as mean ± standard error bar. <b>(B)</b> Mice treated with doses of 6 mg/kg and greater of flibanserin showed significantly higher ERG b-wave and a-wave responses at the highest flash intensity (3.55 log cd•s/m<sup>2</sup>) as compared to vehicle-treated mice. “†” indicates the greatest flash intensity that elicits a rod-only response (b<sub>(max,rod)</sub>). Group differences at the “†” flash intensity were statistically evaluated and are represented in <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0159776#pone.0159776.s001" target="_blank">S1B Fig</a>. Individual ERGs were averaged with ERGs for mice within group and are represented as mean ± standard error. * indicates a significant difference from both the vehicle-treated group and the naïve group, <i>P</i> < 0.05. n.s. indicates non-significance with <i>P</i> > 0.05.</p
