Retinal repair: Bringing stem cells into focus

Оценок: 301 | Просмотров: 24022
The retina is the eye’s most sophisticated component. Researchers are developing techniques to recreate retinal tissues — and even entire retinas — in the lab. These complex structures can then be transplanted into patients and could help to restore lost vision in people affected by diseases such as age-related macular degeneration.

Every single presentation ever done on vision cures uses the phrase "one day" or "someday". Hopes dashed once again. Thanks.

It seems to me that you are personally involved in this and since you look like a kind and grateful soul, I will try to provide some more information. Unfortunately, I don't have much time these days but you mentioned actual progress, so I fetched 4 articles of different pieces of news over 2018 and 2017 that have scientific citations in them and some mention actual timelines and not fantasies, of when these therapies are expected to be available to patients. It seems to me, some niche genetic diseases like Huntington's disease and Hemophilia and some eye diseases (with AMD first) will be the first ones to be tackled by genetic therapies aka the new way of curing diseases that traditional medicine cannot. 1.https://www.leafscience.org/clinical-trial-shows-promising-results-for-age-related-macular-degeneration/ 2.https://futurism.com/an-fda-panel-approved-a-breakthrough-gene-therapy-that-fixes-hereditary-blindness 3.https://bigthink.com/news/half-of-all-blindness-in-humans-is-due-to-macular-degeneration-will-this-be-a-cure 4.https://www.sciencealert.com/stem-cell-therapy-reverses-macular-degeneration-british-patients We live in an amazing time my friend. THIS TIME is definitely not the time to get desperate, things are looking good. Take care.

That's a kind thing to say, so thank you for that. Nice to hear actual progress rather than some pipe dream "someday", which is useful to no one.

Hello friend, the stem cell approach is in clinical trials currently which means that it can be here in 6-8 years depending on the stage that is in and ofcourse if the treatment as a whole is safe and effective, so far so good though, so don't get your hopes dashed.

Video: "Macular degeneration can be reversed." Me: "Science is awesome!" Video: "Injection into the eye." Me: "Nope nope nope nope nope nope."

Had 32 injections in one eye over a period of 6 years (which ultimately didn't work). Believe me, it isn't the big deal you might think

This must also have implied benefits for those who suffer from a broad range of Glaucoma conditions. I hope these trials are successful.

As a medical student, this is going to help me a lot!
