Their genotypes were verified at a National Health Service diagnostic laboratory. Residual enzyme function was estimated for the G40S and R91W mutations15 and the Y368H mutation16 by way of prediction of proteins structure. For every participant, the optical eye with the poorer visual acuity was selected as the study eye; the contralateral attention served as an without treatment control. Intervention The vector-manufacture process and surgical delivery technique have been described elsewhere.7 To determine the effect of RPE65 gene supplementation on foveal cones, we aimed to add the fovea within the subretinal vector bleb in each participant.
