Stem Cell Treatment for Vision Loss
There are two (2) patients who were going to blind and could not be able to see again on how beauty the world is. Before that, thanks to an exploratory stem cell treatment(s) for age-related macular degeneration.
Age-related macular degeneration is one of the typical reason for vision loss in people who ages between fifty (50) and older. The condition makes harm of the macula, which is in charge of an important vision or the capacity to see things straight before us. We, people, utilizes the central vision for what we have done every day such as reading and driving also.
In the new study, they concentrated on a layer of cells which is the retinal pigment epithelium, which usually gives sustenance to certain eye cells and is engaged with the movement of macular degeneration.
They utilized stem cells in order to repair of retinal pigment epithelium. They began with embryonic stem cell(s) and urged these cells into getting to be retinal color epithelium cells.
Now, the treatment is just for wet macular degeneration, it is a type of the ailment in which the macula is harmed by the development of strange veins. Although, they always trust their treatment could help with dry macular degeneration, which happens when cells in the macula steadily separate.
