This is highly interesting, what it says in the article:

"Four researchers from Narayana Nethralaya, including Dr. Shetty, have found unique proteins which could cause Keratoconus, a degeneration of the structure of the cornea in the younger population. “We have patented these proteins (MM9 and complex Annexin) with the Singapore National Eye Institute,” he said."

 

Thanks for posting this Vicky!
