Stem Cells Motivate Ocular Surface Repair in Trial with Vision Loss Patients
January 30, 2019
(UPI) – New stem cell research may bring renewed hope for people who suffer from vision problems. Researchers transplanted eye tissue created from stem cells into the eyes of patients with a condition that causes blindness, according to a study published Monday in the journal Stem Cells Translational Medicine. Just 18 months after the laser-based surgery, the patients’ sight greatly improved.
