BACKGROUND: Best vitelliform macular dystrophy, also known as Best disease (BD), is a form of inherited juvenile-onset macular degeneration. Although its pathogenesis has been linked to the mutation of retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) Bestrophin-1, effective therapeutics against BD have not been identified.
AIM: To explore.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
