Abstract

Currently, there is no proven drug treatment for dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Several different treatment strategies are being investigated, including complement inhibition, neuroprotection, and visual cycle inhibitors, and novel clinical trial endpoints are being explored. Studies have identified genetic predispositions for dry AMD associated with complement dysfunction. Consequently, complement-based therapeutic treatment modalities are promising.
