Stem Cell Treatment Repairing Damaged Retina


Researchers from the University of Louisville claim to have reached a point in their studies that show by successfully generating new cells in retina, stem cells can restore damage retinal tissue.
These incredible findings are a huge step toward helping people who experience vision loss and blindness as a result of age-related macular degeneration and hereditary retinal degeneration.

Scientists have made the important discovery that stem cells which have been removed from bone marrow were attracted to damaged retinal pigment epithelium, the pigmented cell layer just outside the retina.

Many scientists are of the belief that this same technique that could cure optical defects, would be useful to treat congestive heart failure, diabetes, osteoporosis, Alzheimer, Parkinson diseases and spinal cord injuries.
