Overactive membrane attack complex (MAC) in retinal host tissue may underlie the development of the drusen fatty deposits characteristic of dry age-related macular degeneration and the leaky vasculature in the wet form of AMD, which can eventually blot out central vision. Hemera Biosciences Inc. is developing a single-injection gene therapy with the potential to rebalance the complement system in the retina and induce lifetime protection against disease progression for both wet and dry forms of AMD.
