More About This Textbook


Retinal Degenerations is the result of the International Symposium on Retinal degeneration which has become perhaps the most important research meeting in the field. THe topics in this volume explore the etiology, cellular mechanisms, epidemiology, genetics, models and potential therapeutic measures for the blinding diseases of retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration.
