Stem Cells in Ophthalmology Update 14: Current Stem Cell Clinical Trials
Thanks to new friend, Alexey Bersenev, and his stem cell blog, Hematopoiesis, I have been able to add several companies and medical institutions to my list of those involved in ophthalmic clinical trials using stem cells. Alexey recently posted a blog entry, Cell therapy clinical trials in 2011, describing his efforts to put together a list of entities undertaking stem cell clinical trials. He came up with a total of 151 clinical trials underway, of which eight were in ophthalmology.
I am able to add one that he missed, giving a total of nine clinical trials underway (and another about to start). The new list, showing the trials by ophthalmic application, are presented in the accompanying table.
Anyone wishing a pdf file of the table can get it by sending me an email request.
