Vince Says:

Has anyone been treated with Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor, Recombinant, rh-CNTF for macular telangiectasia type 2, or have you been introduced to this medication as a possible treatment?

Hello Vince. I realize that your question is a couple months old and I do not have an answer for you but I have the same question as you as I have just been diagnosed with this. The troubling this is that there is no cure or confirmed treatment that will alleviate the issue from what I have read and this is very concerning. Could I kindly request that if you receieve any responses to let me know of them as well? I would highly appreciate that. Thank you. Fayaz M.

Hello Vince and Steve...sorry for the late reply. I have not had any formal treatment yet. I have been put on a waiting list to see a specialist in Bethesda, Maryland where the American National Eye Institute is. I have heard from my specialist here in Canada that lucentis for my particular Mactel Type 2 non-proliferative condition may actually harm the eye further. Steve, is this what you have - Mactel type 2?....what has been the response thus far from your treatment?
