Visual impairment associated with photoreceptor degeneration is a largely untreatable condition affecting millions of people worldwide. Cellular therapies offer an attractive alternative for the treatment of retinal degeneration. Human adult bone marrow-derived somatic cells (hABM-SCs) present particular advantages for interventional therapy to the eye because they are non-immunogenic, effective at low dose, maintain a stable phenotype and secrete factors known to promote photoreceptor cell… CONTINUE READING
