It makes so much sense to be able to use your own stem cells to heal your body. After all wouldn’t the use of another person/embryo’s stem cells require the life time use of rejection medications because of the use of a different dna? While use of your very own stem cells wouldn’t? This is a question I’ve wondered about. Anyone have the answer?

I heard about this trial a few days ago.

It makes complete sense to use a patient’s own cells to make replacement tissues.

But I wonder if the problem that led to the macular degeneration isn’t built right into the replacement tissues? I don’t know much about macular degeneration, but I always thought it was a genetic disease.

Anyway, it will be interesting to see how this works out.
