LHON is a debilitating disease that leads to quick vision loss concomitantly or successively. It mostly impacts young adolescent males and brings tremendous physical and psychological stress to the patients.


There has been no effective treatment for the disease, so far. Fortunately, with the advance of new technology, gene therapy emerges as an effective and safe treatment.


At LHON Awareness Day, two dialogues were conducted between Dr. Nancy Newman and Dr. Suqin Yu, Dr. Patrick Yu_Wai_Man and Dr. Shihui Wei, Dr. Yong Zhong, Dr. Libin Jiang to get their perspectives on latest clinical practice and gene therapy development for LHON.
