Genetic and Epidemiological Study of Autosomal Dominant (ADRP) and Autosomal Recessive (ARRP) Retinitis Pigmentosa in Sardinia
The recent advances and results in the application of recombinant DNA techniques to family linkage studies has opened new perspectives for the diagnosis and prevention of Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP)(see1 for a review), and has renewed the interest in categorisation of families by recognized Mendelian pattern of inheritance with the aim to localize the genes of the disease on particular chromosomes and eventually to identify the genes and their products.
