Could a fish hold the secret to curing damaged Retinas in humans?

By October 4, 2019 No Comments

Could a fish hold the secret to curing damaged Retinas in humans? Currently, there are few effective treatments for diseases such as Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), the most common cause of blindness in millions of Americans over age 55. Mammals can’t regenerate retinal neurons that are damaged by disease, but in the tiny zebrafish, which is widely used as a “model organism” in biological research, retinal damage triggers a spontaneous regenerative response that restores both retinal structure and function. Since the cells and structure of the Retina are similar among vertebrates, understanding how zebrafish regenerate damaged retinas could lead to new ways to regenerate retinas in people.
