Abstract

Retinitis pigmentosa is the genetic disease in which retinal cells that contain photoreceptors cell are degenerated ad result in loss of vision at night and peripheral vision (SIDE VISION). In this disease many genes are involved, more than 50 genes. In order to analyze the awareness about this disease, we selected 37 biotechnology students and 15 questions were put. Among them 31 were female and 6 were male, all student agreed that retinitis pigmentosa is genetic disease and no one was affected by this disease including their family. It is not easily curable as describe by students because no effective treatments are available for its cure.
