Cell-based therapeutic strategies for replacement and preservation in retinal degenerative diseases
Cell-based therapeutics offer diverse options for treating retinal degenerative diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and retinitis pigmentosa (RP). AMD is characterized by bothExpand

Subretinal Human Umbilical Tissue-Derived Cell Transplantation Preserves Retinal Synaptic Connectivity and Attenuates Müller Glial Reactivity
Human umbilical tissue-derived cells (hUTC or palucorcel) are currently under clinical investigation for the treatment of geographic atrophy, a late stage of macular degeneration, but how hUTCExpand

Multimodal Delivery of Isogenic Mesenchymal Stem Cells Yields Synergistic Protection from Retinal Degeneration and Vision Loss
We previously demonstrated that subretinal injection (SRI) of isogenic mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) reduced the severity of retinal degeneration in Royal College of Surgeons rats in a focal manner.Expand

Human iPSC‐Derived Neural Progenitors Preserve Vision in an AMD‐Like Model
Pluripotent stem cell‐derived retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells are currently being tested for cell replacement in late‐stage age‐related macular degeneration (AMD). However, preserving visionExpand

Retinal morphological and functional changes in an animal model of retinitis pigmentosa.
The P23H-1 transgenic rat carries a mutated mouse opsin gene, in addition to endogenous opsin genes, and undergoes progressive photoreceptor loss that is generally characteristic of human autosomalExpand
