Australian Inherited Retinal Disease Registry and DNA Bank
The Australian Inherited Retinal Disease Registry and DNA Bank was established as a national resource in 2009.
As the molecular mechanisms leading to inherited retinal disease become more clearly understood, novel therapies are being developed which will in time prevent or ameliorate loss of sight and improve visual function.
The early establishment of an affected person’s genetic status is vital if he or she is to have the opportunity to take full advantage of these emerging therapies. The Australian Inherited Retinal Disease Registry and DNA Bank is actively used by clinicians and researchers to identify participants who may be suitable for emerging gene-specific clinical trials, to improve our understanding and treatment of inherited retinal diseases, and to facilitate clinical counselling of patients.
