NIH researchers rescue photoreceptors, prevent blindness in animal models of retinal degeneration

NIH, National Eye Institute (NEI)

The protocols established by the animal study, published January 16 in Science Translational Medicine (STM), set the stage for a first-in-human clinical trial testing the therapy in people with geographic atrophy, for which there is currently no treatment.
