Gene vari­ants that pro­tect against glauc­oma iden­ti­fied, open­ing thera­peutic pos­sib­il­it­ies

An international research collaboration led by researchers from the University of Helsinki and Stanford University has identified rare changes in a gene called ANGPTL7 that lower intraocular pressure and significantly reduce the risk of glaucoma. The results open important new therapeutic possibilities.
