A third of the world’s population carries mutations associated with retinal dystrophies

A very recent study published in the scientific journal PNAS highlights an estimate, on a global scale, of the frequency of individuals carrying pathogenic mutations responsible for inherited retinal dystrophies (IRD) and illustrates the prevalence of this group of diseases. These data are highly relevant for genetic diagnosis, genetic counselling and the design of new therapies. The authors studied the...

DBGen’s genetic diagnosis of hereditary eye diseases tops the 1,000 patients figure

21/01/20 - DBGen, Genetic Diagnosis,

We are glad to announce that early this year DBGen Ocular Genomics has achieved more than 1,000 genetic diagnoses of hereditary visual disorders. The genetic diagnosis of hereditary eye diseases is not without a high degree of complexity. Over 270 genes associated with inherited retinal dystrophies (IRDs) and more than 500 genes associated with visual disorders with a Mendelian inheritance...
