Genetic Mutation Responsible for Form of Macular Degeneration
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.
The prevalence of noninfectious uveitis was 121 cases per 100,000 adults and 29 cases per 100,000 children. By such estimates, nearly 300,000 adults and 22,000 children in the United States had the disease in 2015.
