’ () research collaborator Professor Erica Fletcher from the University of Melbourne has been awarded a $355000 Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage grant.
The funds will be used to detail the precise effects its 2RT laser has on cells cell populations and the body as a whole.
It will provide fundamental knowledge on the impact of 2RT™on cell biology of immune cells and cell signalling pathways in the retina.
The work will also give Ellex’s researchers a better understanding of the mechanism of action and potential uses of the 2RT laser currently in use in clinical trials for the treatment of early-stage age-related macular degeneration.
During FY2015 sales of commercial 2RT units increased to early adopters and research collaborators in Holland Germany Italy France New Zealand and Australia.
