The researchers found that augmenting NPHP5 gene rescues cilia defects in light-sensing cells derived from ciliopathy patients.
Researchers have identified distinct differences among the cells comprising a tissue in the retina, findings that could help develop precise therapies for retinal diseases.
Researchers have identified potential age-related macular degeneration drugs using a novel stem-cell based research tool.
Infusions of purified IL-27 regulatory B cells (I27-Bregs) reduced symptoms in mouse models of multiple sclerosis and autoimmune uveitis.
A new imaging technique for photoreceptors has been developed by selectively blocking light used to observe the eye.
