Influence Of Saffron Supplementation On Retinal Flicker Sensitivity In Early Age-related Macular Degeneration
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
In persons with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), supplementation of 20mg saffron extract daily for three months was able to improve retinal function assessed by fERGs, where the amplitude of the fERG was increased and the threshold decreased relative to placebo treatment.
Ophthalmoscopic appearance was unchanged, and 20/25 persons were seen as responders by increasing acuity by more than one line.
