Participants: Two thousand six hundred twenty-eight eyes from 1314 participants recruited to the Progression Risk of Glaucoma: Relevant SNPs with Significant Association (PROGRESSA) study were evaluated for baseline and… Continue reading Cardiovascular Disease Predicts Structural and Functional Progression in Early Glaucoma
Spinal cord injury (SCI) often causes severe and permanent disabilities due to the regenerative failure of severed axons. Here we report significant locomotor recovery of both hindlimbs after a complete spinal cord crush. This is achieved by the unilateral transduction of cortical motoneurons with an AAV expressing hyper-IL-6 (hIL-6), a potent designer cytokine stimulating JAK/STAT3 signaling… Continue reading Recovery after spinal cord injury
Scientists develop a gene therapy to reverse age-related vision loss andglaucoma damage in mice Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) scientists are part of a team that has successfully restored vision in mice by turning back the clock in aged eye cells in the retina to recapture youthful gene function. The team’s work, published in the journal Nature, is the… Continue reading Reversing aging in the eye
