Retinal detachment-induced cell death may be inhibited by small peptides

Researchers from the Kellogg Eye Centre at the University of Michigan have reported on the use of a novel peptide to reduce the level of photoreceptor cell death associated with retinal detachment. The findings have the potential to extend photoreceptor cell survival not only in cases of retinal detachment but additionally in cases involving photoreceptor cell loss such as AMD and retinitis pigmentosa.
