New Treatments for Dry AMD
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the most common form of blindness in the western world and affects individuals over the age of 50. There is currently no treatment for the dry form of the disease. While risk factors for AMD include age, diet and smoking, it is a predominantly genetically driven disease. During this talk, Dr. Clark will provide some background into this devastating eye disease, discuss how the AMD-risk associated mutations affect our immune system and talk about new therapies currently being developed.
