The first Canadian gene therapy trial for an eye disease will begin in Edmonton later this year. It is a potential treatment for men with choroideremia. The research team at the University of Alberta, led by Dr. Ian MacDonald, has just launched a website, where you can learn more about this trial and the team’s progress. Choroideremia Research Foundation Canada is proud to support this ground-breaking clinical trial.
Watch this short film about CHM and the clinical trials about to start at the University of Alberta. The film highlights the challenges faced by CHMers, their families, carriers of the disease and the clinicians who care for those living with choroideremia. It sends a message of hope!
