LCA RDH12


 

LCA is a rare inherited retinal dystrophy characterised by severe loss of vision from birth. It's the primary cause of blindness in children. It affects 1 in 80,000 people and it is the most common cause of sight loss in children.

More than 25 forms of LCA exist, caused by different genes.

Vicky’s one is related to gene mutation RDH12.

Those with LCA will typically go completely blind in their late teens
or early twenties.

Today a treatment exists only for 1 form of LCA. A lot is needed to make it accessible to patients affected by other LCA genes including Vicky's one.

Research is a concrete hope for us.

In 2018 the first Gene Therapy was approved in the USA and Europe a similar form of LCA (gene RP65).

But a lot of work is needed to make this and other possible treatments accessible to Vicky and kids like her.

We are committed to do everything we can to help to find a cure for us and for generations to come. 

No child deserves a future in the dark.
