A stem cell therapy is being developed which gives great hope to those with Age-related Macular Degeneration. The Institute of Ophthalmology at University College London and Moorfields Eye Hospital in Britain have completed trials on rats and pigs using embryonic stem cells.
The trials demonstrated that stem cells can prevent blindness in these animals with a similar disease to AMD.
The clinical trial is due within two years. It is expected to be the second clinical trial in the world to use embryonic stem cells on humans. The first, on patients with spinal cord injuries, will start in the US this year. The treatment involves replacing a layer of degenerated cells with new ones created from embryonic stem cells.
Surgeons predict it will become a routine one-hour procedure that will be generally available within seven years.
