Ongoing research into treatments for IRD

and how to get involved


IRD clinical trials – ongoing research

While there aren’t currently treatments available for many forms of IRD, there is a lot of research happening to try and find new options to treat these diseases. Most clinical trials are run at specialist centres and only include patients who have a particular diagnosis or specific genetic mutation, and some only run in specific countries. Most clinical trials across all different types of diseases are registered on the site,

If you think you would be interested in enrolling onto a clinical trial, you should talk to your doctor about the possibility and what your options might be.
