In this free webinar, learn about improving the quality of life and bringing more effective and affordable treatments to patients through one-stop R&D solutions for ophthalmology gene therapy. Attendees will gain insights into the rapid advancements in preclinical ophthalmic gene therapy research. The featured speaker will discuss how artificial intelligence (AI)-guided AAV design tools can help accelerate the development of effective therapeutics for patients with ophthalmic diseases.
TORONTO, Ontario, May 19, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- There are a large number of patients with hereditary ophthalmic diseases worldwide, with gene therapy drugs emerging as a powerful therapeutic tool in ophthalmology due to the limited efficacy of traditional treatments. As of 2021, ophthalmology ranks second in the gene therapy pipeline according to the number of treatments in development. There are many gene therapy drugs currently on the market, but basic research and clinical translation in ophthalmology face many difficulties, such as complicated operations, a long production period for experimental models and expensive equipment.
With the continuous progress of gene-editing technology and the development of new delivery methods, the future of gene therapy for ocular diseases is very promising. Despite the complicated operations, a long production period for experimental models and expensive equipment, companies and institutions are actively investing in research and development, and increasing numbers of clinical trials are being conducted to validate the safety and efficacy of these new treatments. The goal is to bring more effective and affordable treatments to patients with hereditary ophthalmic diseases and to improve their quality of life.
Register for this webinar to learn about the rapid advancements in preclinical ophthalmic gene therapy research, such as how AI-guided AAV design tools can help accelerate development of effective therapeutics to patients with ophthalmic diseases.
