Investigating the Potential Role of Gene Mutations in the Age-related Macular Degeneration: Cognitive Impairment Co-morbidity


The number of seniors affected by Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and early cognitive changes is on the rise. Recent studies have shown a high co-occurrence of these conditions. This, along with the structural similarities in the brain and retina, shared disease risk factors and similar histopathology suggest AMD and cognitive impairment may share genetic risk factors as well. The goal of this study was to explore the possibility of known AMD SNPs contributing to the co-morbidity.
