Abstract

Genetic defects of the retina or retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cause a substantial number of sight-impairing or blinding disorders, many of which eventually cause the degeneration and death of the visual cells. Previously considered incurable, some of these retinal diseases can now be treated, at least experimentally, by gene therapy.
