Cary, NC (PRWEB) June 9, 2009 -- Calvert Research, LLC (a unit of Calvert Holdings, Inc.) today announced the execution of a license agreement with Tulane University granting Calvert Research (through its wholly owned subsidiary, Calvert T1, LLC) certain rights to issued patents and patent applications covering a technology platform and novel compounds which have the potential to treat a debilitating eye disease known as Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). The patented compounds and technology licensed by Calvert T1 were developed in the laboratory of Dr. David H. Coy and his team at the Peptide Research Laboratory at Tulane University.

AMD is a leading cause of blindness in the elderly, affecting millions worldwide and results from the progressive deterioration of the macula, which are the light-sensitive cells of the central retina at the back of the eye. AMD is characterized by two types: a dry (atrophic) and wet (exudative) form. Wet AMD occurs when abnormal blood vessels behind the retina begin to grow under the macula, often leaking blood and fluid that can lead to visual distortions, a decrease or loss of central vision, and eventual blindness.
