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

ed standard of care since 2001 has been the use of nutritional supplements based on the federally funded Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS). Further studies have suggested that the AREDS formulation is not optimal and clinical trials of a new formulation -- dubbed "AREDS II" -- are now underway. TOZAL's ingredients are similar to those in AREDS II, with some additional components. TOZAL is made from taurine, omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, antioxidants and lutein.

While the TOZAL study shows how a combination of nutritional components can arrest macular degeneration, a study published in an August 8 issue of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition demonstrates that one critical ingredient in the TOZAL formulation -- omega-3 fatty acids -- can significantly reduce the risk of developing the disease. In a large population-based study in seven European countries, researchers found that seniors who had higher intakes of omega-3 docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) had far lower risks of developing wet macular degeneration. Those in the top 25 percent of DHA and EPA levels -- 300 milligrams a day and above -- reduced their risk by 70 percent. TOZAL is the only currently available eye-health formulation that contains these acids.

"While the AREDS II study will not be completed for five years, both of these studies demonstrate the value of trying this new nutritional approach right now to stave off five years of age-related vision loss," said Dr. Cangemi.

Dr. Cangemi enrolled 75 elderly patients in the TOZAL study who had at least one of their eyes diagnosed with dry macular degeneration. Study sites included New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, Ohio State University, University of California, Irvine and University of Texas, Austin. All patients were treated with the TOZAL formulation for six months.

Study participants saw the researchers during five visits over the six months, during which they repeatedly received a battery of
