Ophthalmology

When cells survive, health therapies come into focus

Millions of people suffer from dry eyes and blindness. Think about how often we take our sight for granted until we or someone we know are affected by conditions like diabetes and macular degeneration. Researchers believe AAGP® could lead to a future where some causes of blindness could be overcome.

The impact of AAGP®

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as many as 12 million Americans live with vision impairment. By regenerating retinal cells in humans, AAGP® has the potential to treat people suffering from eye conditions.

We’re researching three major ways that AAGP® can help: retinal cell transplantation, ocular inflammation and veterinary treatments.

Potential applications

  • Chronic dry eye disease
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Macular degeneration
  • Sjogren’s sundrome
  • Uveitis

Retinal cell transplantation

We are in stage-3 of our pre-clinical retinal replacement program. The Gregory-Evans Retinal Therapeutic Lab at The University of British Columbia is testing whether AAGP® treated cells continue to develop into retinal cells. If successful, this could lead to the restoration of vision in humans. For example, retinal cell replacement therapy could become a critical approach for the treatment of retinal diseases including Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD).

Ocular inflammation

Dry eye disease afflicts more than 30 million people in America and 430 million people around the world. We’re going to look into the effects of AAGP® on ocular inflammation when applied topically. With this biotechnology, we’re hoping to improve the quality of tears that lubricate and nourish the eye. This will help the hundreds of millions of people affected by this chronic issue.

Veterinary treatments

It’s possible that you don’t suffer from dry eye or other eye conditions, but your pets do. We plan on researching AAGP® in veterinary treatments. As we move through the discovery phase, we’ll narrow down our line of exploration to find out how we can improve ophthalmology care in animals.

For investors

At ProtoKinetix, we calculate the market value of AAGP® in how well it can take care of patients. We want to help medical treatments become more successful in improving lives and helping cells survive. But we know that as an investor, you also want to know how our biotechnology can help you.

The 2025 market forecast for the ophthalmology industry is $35.7 billion. Investing in the future of ophthalmology medicine will help you and the tens of millions of people in America who are living with vision impairment.
