Stargardt Disease.
Last Updated: Jul 23, 2019

Stargardt disease (STGD) is one of the most common macular dystrophies in young adults. It progresses slowly. Its prevalence is about 1:8000-10,000. Age of onset is a surrogate marker: The earlier the onset, the more severe the disease course. Onset usually occurs in childhood or ...

Vitamin A in Stargardt disease-an evidence-based update.
Last Updated: Apr 10, 2019

High intake of vitamin A is suspected to be a risk factor for the progression of Stargardt disease (STGD1) and many health authorities recommend Stargardt patients not to use oral vitamin A supplements outside that provided naturally in the food. The present study provides the first ...

Novel therapeutics for Stargardt disease.
Last Updated: Nov 13, 2018

Stargardt disease, an inherited macular dystrophy caused by mutations in the ABCA4 gene encoding a retinal transporter protein, is the most prevalent form of macular degeneration in children. Patients with Stargardt disease develop severe vision loss within their first or second decades ...

The CFTR Corrector, VX-809 (Lumacaftor), Rescues ABCA4 Trafficking Mutants: a Potential Treatment for Stargardt Disease.
Last Updated: Aug 14, 2019

Mutations in ABCA4 cause Stargardt macular degeneration, which invariably ends in legal blindness. We studied two common mutants, A1038V (in NBD1) and G1961E (in NBD2), with the purpose of exploring how they interact with the cell's quality control mechanism. The study was designed ...

Impact of segmentation density on spectral domain optical coherence tomography assessment in Stargardt disease.
Last Updated: Apr 10, 2019

Automated spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) segmentation algorithms currently do not perform well in segmenting individual intraretinal layers in eyes with Stargardt disease (STGD). We compared selective B-scan segmentation strategies for generating mean retinal ...
