Sight for sore eyes (Stem cells - corneal disease - inexpensive, quick) Adult stem cells, thank you.
Why the eye appeal? As organs go, it is easily accessible, somewhat protected from the immune system's propensity for transplant rejection, and comes in a convenient pair so that doctors can try experimental treatments on just one eye.
Is this hubris or naivete?
It's also known as sympathetic uveitis.

Ignorant reporter. Super-duper ignorant, to think this is the FIRST (even potential) success - there's something like 40 or so now - don't have the link handy.
I’m going to a benefit dinner tonight for an Amish woman who was kicked in the face by a horse. She has lost sight in both eyes. I wonder if this would help her. She is most determined to be productive. She recently sewed a dress with very little help.
Betcha it's Adult. For all the hype about embryonic, there haven't been many successes...and if there were, the private sector would have been on it in a heartbeat (cause it would be making real breakthrough dollars), instead, we have to Federally fund it and make all of us pay for what good ol fashion Capitalism could have paid for, instead.
Interesting. Thanks neverdem.

Why do both prolifers and antilife people never say which KIND of stem cells? They just say stem cells.
