Researchers restore visual function and preserve photoreceptors in retinitis pigmentosa (RP) model

A collaborative effort between researchers at the University of Florida and the University of California (San Francisco and San Diego) have successfully reported the restoration of visual function in an animal model of dominant RP. The research is the first of its kind to employ an anti-apoptotic gene therapy approach focused on over-expressing “BiP” a protein chaperone known to be involved in cellular stress signalling.
