TOZAL(R) Nutritional Supplement Improves Vision in Common Form of Macular Degeneration
Date:9/10/2008

- Multicenter study finds unique combination of micronutrients superior to current 'AREDS' standard of care; Results supported by new omega-3 study -

HOUSTON, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- A landmark study at five university-based research centers found that TOZAL(R), a patented combination of antioxidants and micronutrients, enabled patients with "dry" macular degeneration to improve their vision. Patients in the study's placebo arm, who received the "AREDS-type" nutritional formulation (the current standard of care), continued to lose their eyesight. Results of the TOZAL study are supported by a major new study, which shows that omega-3 acids cut the risk of developing "wet" macular degeneration.

"The TOZAL study demonstrates that treatment with this supplement can help patients with age-related vision loss," said lead investigator Francis E. Cangemi, M.D., a macular degeneration specialist affiliated with Vitreo-Retinal Associates of New Jersey.

At six months, 57 percent of those in the TOZAL treatment group improved an average of one-half eye-chart line of visual acuity, and 20 percent stayed the same. All patients in the placebo (AREDS-type nutritional supplement) arm lost visual acuity, with an average loss of 1.49 lines at the end of six months. The treatment group continued to show improvement over time, while most in the placebo group continued to lose visual acuity over time. The study was published in the February 2007 issue of BMC Ophthalmology, a peer-reviewed open-access medical journal.

Age-related macular degeneration is a progressive disorder associated with central vision loss and is the leading cause of visual impairment and blindness in people over age 60. More than 15 million Americans have macular degeneration, and an additional 50 million are at risk. Ninety percent of those with macular degeneration have the atrophic or "dry" form of the disease.

Although there is no cure for macular degeneration, the accept
