The Jules Stein Eye Institute at University of California, Los
Angeles is seeking clinical research volunteers. Dr. Michael B. Gorin
is conducting a nationwide study of genetic and other risk factors
that contribute to the development of age-related macular
degeneration (also known as Age-Related Maculopathy). Individuals or
members of their family may be eligible to participate in this
observational study (this is not a treatment trial) which does not
require that individuals travel to UCLA, but allows individuals to
participate through a confidential and secure website. Individuals
will be required to give 1 saliva sample or have their blood drawn
(20 ml). Photographs of the retina will be covered by the study.
The study is looking for:
* Individuals from 49 to 65 years old who have/had a least one
parent with macular degeneration. Spouses or partners will be included.
* The parent(s) who have Age-Related Macular degeneration or have
a first-degree relative with the disease (siblings).
If an individual wishes to learn more about this study, they can go
to the following website and read about the study with complete
anonymity (and even send questions to the research coordinators).
