Mice with Alzheimer's disease-linked gene variants suffer deteriorating retinas

R. John Davenport

Abstract: A gene version that can lead to foggy thinking might also precipitate blurry vision, new results suggest. The gene variant, connected to Alzheimer's disease in humans, destroys the retinas of mice over time. The findings conflict with data from humans hinting that the gene protects eyes.
