The Use of Gene Therapy in Treating Retinitis Pigmentosa and Dry AMD

November 8, 2010

I have just completed a comprehensive treatise on the use of gene therapy for treating retinitis pigmentosa and the dry form of AMD. The report introduces RetroSense Therapeutics and its efforts to develop a gene therapy treatment to restore vision in those suffering from RP (first) and dry AMD (second).

I have also included sections on alternative therapies for both RP and AMD, including retinal implants (for RP), stem cells, and sustained release drugs and a few other options. In addition, there is a short writeup on other applications of gene therapy in ophthalmology.

To view the report online, follow this link.
