Breakthrough Gene Therapy Prevents Retinal Degeneration

Tufts University

In one of only two studies of its kind, a study from researchers at Tufts University demonstrates that non-viral gene therapy can delay the onset of some forms of eye disease and preserve vision. The team developed nanoparticles to deliver therapeutic genes to the retina and found that treated mice temporarily retained more eyesight than controls. The study brings researchers closer to a non-viral gene therapy treatment for degenerative eye disorders.
