TEXTBOOK : AGE RELATED MACULAR DEGENERATION – THE RECENT ADVANCES IN BASIC RESEARCH AND CLINICAL CARE

MACULAR DEGENERATION

Edited by Gui‐Shuang Ying .

310 pages . 
Open Access .


In the past decade, great progress has been made in understanding the pathobiology and genetics of Age‐Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), and the effective therapies for this blinding disease have become available. These advancements have lead to the substantial change in the management of AMD patients. The online book Age Related Macular Degeneration – The Recent Advances in Basic Research and Clinical Care presents the most recent advances in basic research and clinical care of AMD. Different from other AMD books, this book aims to cover the new findings from basic and translational research on the biological and genetic mechanism of AMD, and the new interventions to prevent and treat this disease.
The book has a total of 15 chapters, grouped into two sections. Section one includes six chapters covering the basic and translational research of AMD. Section two includes nine chapters describing the clinical research and management of AMD. Each chapter has been contributed to by outstanding researchers or clinicians in the area of AMD.
They present a very detailed review of new research and findings in the topic‐specific AMD area, and also provide direction for future research. The book is targeted at researchers and clinicians who are interested in learning about new advances in the understanding and treatment of AMD, and insights into future research of AMD.
We hope that this AMD book will provide the latest information to its readers. The large amount of information presented in this book will help clinicians to take best care of their AMD patients. Additionally, it will assist researchers in conducting further AMD research and, eventually, achieve the goal of finding effective and safe ways to prevent or treat AMD.
