As in the previous study, I visited the clinical trial information sites and extracted the pertinent information for use in this table, Table 3. Stem Cell Therapy in Ophthalmology - Ongoing Clinical Trial Details.
I then contacted each of the principals or sponsor involved in the study and requested the number of patients treated to date. The response to date has not been as good as with the gene therapy trials, but here is what I was able to find out.
Only two companies/institutions involved answered my request, and so I can only reliably report that 17 patients have been given stem cells for treatment of ophthalmic disorders to date.
I hope to gather additional information from either the clinical investigators or others and will update this table as new information is obtained.
Here, then, is the initial version of this table.
A downloadable pdf file of the above table is available by request.
To obtain copies of the current versions of the first two tables, listed below, please send me an email.
