Epidemiological, histopathological and biochemical evidence indicates that AMD is associated with oxidative damage, lipofuscin accumulation, chronic inflammation, and mutations in the complement system. Molecular targets have been identified that may serve as the basis for developing new, better treatments for AMD including prophylactic therapy and treatments for the late stage complications of geographic atrophy and choroidal neovascularization.
