A death of cone cells means degraded vision, so perhaps cone cell numbers could be raised, if only there were a way to produce cone cells in abundance. Then, cone cells could be transplanted en masse, potentially reversing the vision losses due to age-related macular degeneration. We are born with a fixed number of cone […]Leer Más "STEM CELL ADVANCE BRINGS VISION REPAIR IN SIGHT"
Stem cells are always a hot topic – they hold huge potential to treat many diseases of the eye, and famously, Holoclar (a stem cell-based treatment for moderate to severe limbal stem cell deficiency caused by burns) was the first therapy of this class to be approved in Europe. When it comes to the research […]Leer Más "CAN AMNIOTIC STEM CELLS SUPPRESS PATHOLOGIC RETINAL NEOVASCULARIZATION?"
