    Macular Disease Foundation Australia’s latest annual review of many of the research programs into macular disease from around the world.

    The review explains the research process, and provides highlights on research for potential new treatments for macular disease. It looks at research focused on surgery, drugs, stem cell treatment and gene therapy.

    The lead story in this edition considers whether a new technique could be used to study blood markers in people with age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Researcher Associate Professor Gerald Liew says the work could one day lead to new treatments for AMD.

    The Annual Research Update is included in each Summer edition of our free community newsletter, Vision Voice.
