doi:10.1016/S0140-6736(13)62117-0 Retinal gene therapy in patients with choroideremia: initial findings from a phase 1/2 clinical trial news An experimental therapy improved the vision of patients in an early trial that was only supposed to test its safety. The experimental gene therapy not only stopped the steady degeneration of the patients’ vision, but appears to have reversed some of the damage. And the effects have lasted two years in one case.
