Cure for blindness?


TCD researchers have developed a gene therapy for mice which could be used to treat diseases that cause blindness in humans. Scientists in Dublin have developed a treatment that has reversed a form of blindness in mice. Although not yet ready for use in humans, the experiment shows that it may soon be possible to cure some of the most common forms of blindness.
Prof Jane Farrar, of the Smurfit Institute of Genetics at Trinity College Dublin, led the research, which was published last week in the journal Human Gene Therapy .
