Alzheimer's Disease Proteins Could Be the Leading Cause of Age-related Macular Degeneration
Scientists found that amyloid beta proteins accumulate in the retinas of AMD patients – the same types of proteins that settle in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers are getting closer to understanding the pathogenesis of one type of age-related macular degeneration.
Research using mouse models demonstrated that a high-fat diet increased intestinal permeability, which led to increases in circulating and local inflammatory cytokines, and increased choroidal neovascularization.
By applying a machine learning approach, scientists can now differentiate neuromyelitis optica from multiple sclerosis on magnetic resonance imaging scans of patients’ gray matter.
Treatment with recombinant adeno-associated virus vector gene-therapy was shown to be safe and potentially effective in a small test group of patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration.
A new study out of Ireland examined the prevalence of extra-articular manifestations in axial spondyloarthritis, and found that women were at significantly higher risk for inflammatory bowel disease and uveitis than men.
The presence of hyper-reflective foci (HF) is related to the level of severity of age-related macular degeneration.
Scientists have ruled out the gene DMBT1 in the pursuit of understanding the pathogenesis of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Research has shown that trouble with vision can negatively impact patients’ quality of life. Now, a study compared quality of life outcomes in people with AMD and glaucoma.
