This will be the first in a series of interactive webinars, hosted by Apellis, that will feature international and local experts in conversation about a range of topics and developments in GA.
Founded in 2009, Apellis was established with the ambition to develop life-changing medicines for patients with diseases that are driven by excessive activation of the complement cascade.
Targeting complement proteins centrally at the level of C3 is a novel therapeutic approach that may have potential in the treatment of GA or dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD), that leads to progressive and irreversible vision loss.1
