Usher Syndrome Gene Therapy Clinical Trial Underway


The first-ever gene therapy trial for patients with Usher syndrome type 1 is underway at the Casey Eye Institute at the Oregon Health Sciences University.  If this trial is successful, other gene therapy trials are expected to follow.    This clinic trial has the possibility of stopping retinal degeneration in patients and in many cases, will improve vision.

    I have a relative who would benefit immensely from this treatment. The clock is ticking and it would make my heart smile to tell him he can be a part of this study and treatment. Please tell me how to get involved.
