RPB-supported researchers made a critical discovery about the gene mutation that causes many retinal degenerative diseases, opening the door for a new line of research into potential treatments.
The model will allow researchers to better assess treatments for this hard-to-study cause of blindness.
The findings may have significant therapeutic implications for AMD, the most common cause of elderly blindness in the developed world
At the ARVO Inaugural Press Conference, three RPB-funded scientists pushing the boundaries of imaging, early detection, regeneration.
Adults whose eyes are slow to adjust to the dark have a greater risk of developing age-related macular degeneration.
Some patients taking high doses of a cholesterol-lowering medication had complete resolution of lipid deposits in the dry form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
RPB-supported researchers have made a significant discovery that might lead to the delay or prevention of the most common cause of blindness in the elderly.
RPB-supported researchers have found a new, rare inherited retinal disease. The investigators hope that finding the genetic cause will increase understanding of more common retinal diseases. The macula,...
Scientists haveuncovered a previously unknown pathway in the retina that allowsphotoreceptor cells to adapt following changes in light exposure. The discoverycould help scientists better understand diseases...
Pluripotent stem cells — those, like embryonic stem cells, that give rise to almost every type of cell in the body — can be converted into the different classes of retinal cells necessary for vision, according...
