The Macular Degeneration Foundation is pleased to announce that a team of researchers, funded by the MD Foundation, has made an important breakthrough. It is fully described in the following linked technical article entitled: “A Systems Biology Approach Uncovers Novel Disease Mechanisms in Age-Related Macular Degeneration”.
The science may be difficult for most of us to understand, but the bottom line is clear. This research identifies the genes and pathways that drive macular degeneration. With this essential understanding, the efforts to find effective treatments and one day prevent macular degeneration have received a significant boost.
