More hope!

Another clinical trial is being conducted in Rome, Italy, directly relating to Stargardt's!! This is very exciting news! The study centres around Saffron (a spice) as it is thought to be a "retinal neuro protectant against oxidative damage" (see link below).

The study plans to give saffron supplements to participants to study its effects. This is very exciting news as it seems to be a much simpler way of treating or at least halting the disease. I am even considering going to my local health food shop and getting some supplements or maybe even eating some spicy saffron food!

Fingers crossed this trial is successful!
