  • Expectations (prognosis) The disorder will continue to progress, although slowly. Complete blindness is uncommon. Complications Peripheral and central loss of vision will eventually occur.[iloveicare.co.nz]
  • What is the prognosis for retinitis pigmentosa? The prognosis is poor since there is no cure for the disease. However, there are researchers working hard on this disease.[medicinenet.com]

  • To better understand the pathophysiology of XLRP and how to reverse it in specific patients, a team of University of Iowa investigators modeled RPGR -associated XLRP by using patient-specific pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) generated from dermal fibroblasts[mdmag.com]

  • Thus, CT assessment, as a clue to changes in choroidal vasculature or damage to choriocapillaris, may aid in a better understanding of the pathophysiology of RP.[jeos.eg.net]
