New gene therapy to treat rare eye disease now available in Alberta

Alberta has become the first province in Canada to use new gene therapy to treat a rare and debilitating genetic eye disease.

The first three patients — two young children and an adult — received the treatment Dec. 14 at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton.

The Royal Alex is the first of four places in Canada that will offer the gene therapy.
