PURPOSE Identification of genetic factors in the pathogenesis of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is of crucial importance in this common cause of blindness. Mutations in the Stargardt disease gene (ABCR) were previously reported in patients with atrophic forms of AMD. The purpose of this study was to analyze familial segregation of ABCR gene mutations in 52 unrelated multiplex cases of exudative AMD. METHODS A complete ophthalmological examination including visual acuity measurement… CONTINUE READING
