Veterinary ophthalmologist András Komáromy has found that combining gene therapy with treatment using the protein CNTF can help improve vision in dogs, and possibly people, with inherited retinal disorders. "Based on our results, we are proposing a new concept of retinal therapy," Dr. Komáromy said. "One treatment option alone might not be enough to reverse vision loss, but a combination therapy can maximize therapeutic success." This article also summarizes a discovery in mice that could help alleviate post-traumatic stress disorder in people and research focused on language and monkeys.
