Anti-aging gene therapy restores vision to mice with glaucoma


Using an experimental gene therapy, Harvard scientists have successfully restored vision to mice suffering glaucoma by effectively rewinding the aging process in their cells. While still in the early stages, the team says the research is a proof of concept for slowing the symptoms of aging with epigenetics.

“If affirmed through further studies, these findings could be transformative for the care of age-related vision diseases like glaucoma and to the fields of biology and medical therapeutics for disease at large.”
