If you have Usher Syndrome Type 1C, your participation is critical to developing treatments. History studies are an essential part of bringing treatments to patients. As researchers get closer to developing therapies that will help slow, stop or reverse the degeneration of sight caused by Usher Syndrome, and specifically USH 1C, it is important to understand the history of progression of the disease in patients in order to confirm the effectiveness of those treatments.
Usher 2020 Foundation are supporting therapies that include gene augmentation, drug therapies, and stem cell therapies. To move these treatments to clinical trials, they will need a thorough understanding of Usher Syndrome patients, and for some of these treatments, specifically USH 1C patients, the worldwide prevalence, and the clinical history of the disease.
