Late-stage age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a common sight-threatening disease of the central retina affecting approximately 1 in 30 Caucasians. Besides age and smoking, common genetic variants from at least 19 gene loci have reproducibly been associated with AMD likely explaining a large proportion of disease. Based on the current knowledge, several models were calculated to predict ...
