Blindness Treatment Utilizes Stem Cells to Partially Restore Vision.

Posted by on Mar 14, 2014 11:07:59 AM

The use of adult stem cells can potentially treat a wide range of visual impairments.

Researchers from the Institute for Ophthalmology at the University College of London report on a significant advancement in stem cell therapy that can potentially lead to new treatments for blindness. Adult stem cells were manipulated into rod cells and then injected into blind animal models, partially restoring the vision of the animals.

The treatment breakthrough has the potential to lead to the development of clinical treatments for a wide range of visual impairments. However the researchers expressed some concern regarding their use of donated stem cells due to the possibility of an immune reaction.

The research is an example of the potential for stem cell regenerative medical therapies to treat and cure seemingly intractable and incurable conditions. We believe the best stem cells to use in these emerging regenerative therapies will be you own.
