Regeneration of the retina by stem cell transplantation therapy

Abstract:

One strategy to restore vision in retinitis pigmentosa and related retinal degenerations is by cell replacement. Typically, patients lose vision when the outer retinal photoreceptor layer is lost, and so the therapeutic ideal would be to restore vision at this stage of disease. It is not currently known if a degenerate retina lacking the outer nuclear layer of photoreceptor cells would allow the survival, maturation and reconnection of replacement photoreceptors, as prior studies used host...
