Availability of Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) Donor Tissue and Histopathologic Reports.
The Foundation Fighting Blindness, Baltimore, Md, sponsors histopathologic studies of donor eyes from patients with RP, macular degeneration, Usher syndrome, and related disorders and from obligate and suspected carriers of these disorders. Detailed histopathologic reports on more than 200 eyes, which include macrophotography and light and electron microscopy findings, are available to interested researchers. These reports document the findings on patients from ages 2 to 100 years (average age is 72 years) with different genetic forms of retinal degeneration at various stages of the disease. Tissue samples and sections from most of these donor retinas are available for distribution to qualified investigators. For more information contact the Research Programs Coordinator, The Foundation Fighting Blindness, 1401 Mount Royal Ave, Baltimore, MD 21217; (800) 683-5555 or (410) 225-9400.
