With help of electroretinography (ERG), a specialized measure of retinal function, the researchers observed that the ability of light to activate rods was significantly reduced in currently healthy individuals who descended from multigenerational families that had members diagnosed with either schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.
Ocular ultrasonography revealed no evidence of retinal detachment, and electroretinography revealed normal retinal function.
Data from the trial demonstrated a well-tolerated, dose-dependent modulation of the visual cycle using electroretinography (ERG), an established eye test in the evaluation of response and recovery of the retina that is used to help diagnose disease.
The men underwent comprehensive ophthalmologic examinations including electroretinography (a test to measure the electrical response of the light-sensitive rods and cones in the eye, used to detect diseases of the retina) before, during and after treatment.
The Phase 1a clinical results, presented at ARVO, Aegean Retina XI and ISOPT, demonstrated that ACU-4429 was safe and tolerable in healthy volunteers aged 55-80; and dose-dependent modulation of the visual cycle was shown in electroretinography (ERG) measurement, an eye test used to detect abnormal function of the retina (the light-detecting portion of the eye).
In addition, the data demonstrate a dose-dependent modulation of the visual cycle using electroretinography (ERG), an established eye test in the evaluation of response and recovery of the retina that is used to help diagnose disease.
However, low level of retinal activity, measured by electroretinography, indicates very little visual function.
