Identification of new retinal dystrophy genes and characterisation of genotype/phenotype correlations
Retinal dystrophies (RD) are a heterogeneous group of hereditary diseases that are characterised by the degenerative effect that they have on the photoreceptors and cells of the retinal pigment epithelium.
Efficacy and safety assessment of T4032 (unpreserved bimatoprost 0.01%) versus Lumigan 0.01% in ocular hypertensiove or glacomatous patients
Randomised, parallel-group, multicentre, blind to evaluators clinical trial to assess the efficacy and safety of PRGF-Endoret eye drops in patients with stage 2 and 3 neurotrophic keratitis.
Mass sequencing of exomes for the identification of new genes and variants responsible for retinal dystrophies
Retinitis pigmentosa, with a prevalence of 1 in 4,000 people and more than one million sufferers worldwide, is the most common retinal dystrophy. These diseases are neurodegenerative and caused by the death of the photoreceptors and cells of the retinal pigment epithelium.
