Liposome
Aug 27, 2010
Researchers demonstrate that non-viral gene therapy can delay the onset of some forms of retinal degeneration and preserve vision, according to a new study. The researchers developed nanoparticles to deliver therapeutic genes to the retina and found that treated mice temporarily retained more eyesight than controls. "Our work shows that...

Polyion complex micelle
Jun 22, 2009
In the development of a pharmacological therapy for choroidal neovascularization (CNV), nanomedical devices can be helpful to achieve a high local concentration of a drug with minimal systemic adverse effects. A liposome is a tiny bubble (vesicle), made out of the same material as a cell membrane (phospholipids). Liposomes usually contain a...

Retinal bipolar cells communicate with photoreceptors
Apr 28, 2008
A new research paper published in Nature Neuroscience reports that for the first time ever, artificial photoreceptors have restored vision in blind mice. The paper reports that scientists were able to restore vision lost to photoreceptor degeneration by engineering bipolar retinal cells to express a light-activated molecule called...

For the first time, scientists have used gene therapy to safely restore vision in a teenager with Leber's congenital amaurosis. Although the patient has not achieved normal vision, the world's first gene transplant for blindness, carried out by a British team, produced an unprecedented improvement in Steven Howarth's sight. They injected...
