Systemic aminoglycoside treatment in rodent models of retinitis pigmentosa.

We studied the potential of systemically administered aminoglycosides as a therapy for retinal degeneration resulting from premature termination codon (PTC) mutations. Aminoglycosides were systemically delivered to two rodent models of retinal degeneration: a transgenic rat model of dominant disease caused by a PTC in rhodopsin (S334ter); and a mouse model… CONTINUE READING
