Antioxidant Genes Slow Vision Loss

Antioxidant Genes Slow Vision Loss

Using antioxidant gene therapy, scientists are slowing down vision loss and cell death by boosting photoreceptor cell’s own antioxidant powers. Rods and cones (photoreceptors) allow us to see light and transmit the information to the brain. When these cells get too much oxygen, such that occurs in a disease process like Retinitis Pigmosa, these cells […]
