    We observed that the third leading cause of blindness in the world, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), occurs at a very low documented frequency in a population-based cohort from Timor-Leste. Thus, we determined a ...
  • FLT1 Genetic Variation Predisposes to Neovascular AMD in Ethnically Diverse Populations and Alters Systemic FLT1 Expression 

    Owen, L. A.; Morrison, M. A.; Ahn, J.; Woo, S. J.; Sato, H.; Robinson, R.; Morgan, D. J.; Zacharaki, F.; Simeonova, M.; Uehara, H.; Chakravarthy, U.; Hogg, R. E.; Ambati, B.
