A Birdshot Biobank!

Do you have birdshot chorioretinopathy? Are you interested in participating in research to further understanding of this disease? Dr. Lucia Sobrin at the Mass. Eye and Ear Infirmary is leading a study to identify genetic markers, beyond HLA-A29, that increase the risk of birdshot chorioretinopathy.

The study involves a one-time blood draw and signing a form to allow the notes and eye images from your eye doctor’s office to be shared with Dr. Sobrin. 

If you are interested in participating, please contact the Center for Clinical Research Operations of

Mass. Eye and Ear at 617-573-6060 or .
