LEHA team in collaboration with INRAE, Jean-Monnet Saint-Etienne University, ITERG, CHU Dijon Bourgogne, CHU de Bordeaux has identified a blood biomarker that predicts the retinal content of omega-3 fatty acids.
This biomarker would allow early identification of people at risk of developing AMD, before detection by ophthalmological exams. Once identified, people at risk could receive appropriate nutritional support.
