Researchers Make a Novel Discovery in Age-Related Macular Degeneration – Neuroscience News

Summary: Treatment with Humanin G reduced protein levels of inflammation markers that become elevated in age-related macular degeneration. Source: Impact Journals Inflammatory processes drive the progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) disease—a leading cause of vision loss in the United States. In this new Aging study, researchers from the University of California Irvine and University of Southern California compared …
