Название: Retinal Degenerations: Biology, Diagnostics, and Therapeutics
Авторы: Tombran-Tink J., Barnstable C.
In Retinal Degenerations: Biology, Diagnostics, and Therapeutics, editors Joyce Tombran-Tink and Colin Barnstable present new and noteworthy research into retinal diseases. Written by renowned scientific investigators, this innovative collection of treatment strategies and technological discoveries allows for the realistic translation of research into practice. Following an exciting preface describing the diagnosis and treatment of retinal degenerations from antiquity to the modern era, this four-part volume begins with thought-provoking portraits of the reality of life with retinal degenerations, as experienced by sufferers of the disease. In Part II, researchers and practitioners examine seven different retinal diseases, including: age-related macular degeneration, Leber Congenital Amaurosis, Macular Degeneration, Stargardt Disease, X-Linked Juvenile Retinoschisis, Usher Syndrome, and Retinitis Pigmentosa. Part III discusses our current understanding of the underlying mechanisms of retinal degeneration, and in Part IV, the challenges of therapeutic strategies for retinal degenerative diseases are emphasized as researchers discuss cutting-edge treatments. Retinal Degenerations: Biology, Diagnostics, and Therapeutics brings the scientific community to the frontline of research into diseases of the retina and challenges scientists in academia and the pharmaceutical industry to develop innovative strategies for the translation of investigative research into viable therapeutics.
