There is currently no cure for the group of eye diseases that make up glaucoma. However, new research points to a way of preventing the disease, as vitamin B-3 has been proven effective as a treatment in mice. The research - led by Jackson Laboratory professor and Howard Hughes medical investigator Simon W.M. John - investigates the effect of vitamin B-3 on mice that had been genetically modified to be prone to developing glaucoma. The findings were published in the journal Science.
