In developed countries, age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) is a common cause of blindness in the elderly. It is a clinically complex and genetically heterogeneous disorder. The etiology of the disorder may involve interactions between genetic and environmental factors. Recently it has been reported that a polymorphism in the complement factor H (CFH) and LOC387715 gene may determine the susceptibility of individuals to ARMD. In order to replicate and to determine the frequency of this… CONTINUE READING
