Geographic Atrophy Market Research

What is Geographic Atrophy?

Geographic Atrophy (GA) is an advanced form of dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a chronic, progressive loss of the retinal pigment epithelium with associated loss of thermocapillary leading to cell death (atrophy) of the retina. As a result, scotomas, or blind spots, can develop. Symptoms of this disease may result in significant visual function impairment and eventual blindness. GA is associated with a significant decline in vision-related quality of life in patients in areas such as driving, reading, and recognizing faces and a greater risk for developing cognitive dysfunction. Within the United States, an estimation of one million people have GA. GA is an area of high unmet need with no advanced therapeutic treatment options prior to this year (2023).
