Influence Of Saffron Supplementation On Retinal Flicker Sensitivity In Early Age-related Macular Degeneration

Effect Increase
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 25
Sex Both Genders
Age Range 65+
Notes for this study:
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.
