Back in 1992 Nancy Newman MD saw our 23year old son xxxxx xxx (xxxx xxx) who was diagnosed with Leber's Optic Neuropathy.We were wondering if any progress had been made in research into this disease? M & E RichardsXXX@XXXXXX.XXX
There is research currently ongoing at Newcastle University here in the UK.
I have found links to it which are below.
The papers are technical and aimed at other specialists but you probably know an awful lot about this condition yourselves so much of it will probably make sense to you.
The papers details the two individuals who are doing the research, including their work contact details, so you could contact them direct given the fact your son was diagnosed with the condition and perhaps find out more?
