This study is to investigate whether variants in the LOC387715 locus and the HtrA serine peptidase 1 (HTRA1) gene within the 10q26 locus are associated with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy and whether they are associated with clinical patterns including angiographic phenotype in a Korean population.
This is a cross-sectional case-control study. One hundred Korean patients with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy and 100 control subjects were genotyped for the LOC387715 (rs10490924) and the HTRA1 gene polymorphism (rs11200638)

AG-013,958 is being studied to treat patients with Age-Related Macular Degeneration. A total of 144 subjects may be enrolled in the trial. Subjects will be male or female at least 55 years...
The purpose of the study is to investigate whether the efficacy of Lucentis treatment for exudative age-related macular degeneration is associated with VEGF and HTRA1 DNA polymorphisms
Risk factors for Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) involves genetic variations in the alternative pathway of complement inhibitor factor H. The complement system is part of the innat...
The purpose of this study is to compare 12-month results of two single initial treatments—photodynamic therapy with verteporfin alone and this therapy combined with intravitreal bevacizu...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of PDT and TTT for the treatment of subfoveal occult CNV in age-related macular degeneration.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is an important cause of blindness. It is characterized by a retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) disorder that leads to death of photoreceptor cells (PRCs). AMD has...
To determine the significance of the correlation between optical coherence tomographic (OCT) findings and focal macular electroretinograms (fmERG) at 12 months after beginning intravitreal injections ...
What patients should eat to reduce their risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is still unclear. We investigated the effect of a diet recommended by Health Councils on AMD.
To demonstrate the advantage of optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) for the diagnosis and management of proliferative macular telangiectasia type 2 (MacTel2) masquerading as neovascular ag...
To investigate the relationship between perfusion of the choriocapillaris (CC) and macular function in eyes with intermediate age-related macular degeneration.
A form of MACULAR DEGENERATION also known as dry macular degeneration marked by occurrence of a well-defined progressive lesion or atrophy in the central part of the RETINA called the MACULA LUTEA. It is distinguishable from WET MACULAR DEGENERATION in that the latter involves neovascular exudates.
A secreted serine protease that contains a Kazal domain-like region and a C-terminal PDZ domain. It has a broad range of targets that include EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX PROTEINS; PROTEOGLYCANS; and INSULIN-LIKE GROWTH FACTOR BINDING PROTEINS. Mutations in the HTRA1 gene are associated with AGE-RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION 7 and Cerebral Autosomal Recessive Arteriopathy with Subcortical Infarcts and Leukoencephalopathy (CARASIL).
Specialized ophthalmic technique used in the surgical repair and or treatment of disorders that include retinal tears or detachment; MACULAR HOLES; hereditary retinal disease; AIDS-related retinal infections; ocular tumors; MACULAR DEGENERATION; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY; and UVEITIS.
A retrogressive pathological change in the retina, focal or generalized, caused by genetic defects, inflammation, trauma, vascular disease, or aging. Degeneration affecting predominantly the macula lutea of the retina is MACULAR DEGENERATION. (Newell, Ophthalmology: Principles and Concepts, 7th ed, p304)
A recombinant humanized monoclonal antibody fragment that binds VEGF-A to prevent its binding to VEGFR-1 and VEGFR-2 receptors. This activity reduces vessel permeability and angiogenesis in the treatment of neovascular age-related MACULAR DEGENERATION.
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
