What are the genetic biomarkers/factors that confer risk for development and progression of diabetic retinopathy?

Submitted by: NEI Collaborative Clinical Research Program Officers

Diabetes often leads to end-organ complications, one of which is diabetic retinopathy and vision loss. This has a significant impact on quality of life for the diabetic patient. Finding genetic determinants would be predictive for this outcome within the diabetic population and may potentially lead to therapeutic interventions.
