Induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells from a donor cell bank may open a new paradigm shift in stem cell treatment.

Researchers from the Japanese RIKEN Centre have reportedly delivered induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells from an anonymous donor to a 60 year old male patient. The milestone is understood to represent a world first in the development of stem cell technology, in addition to changing the medical approach to how such treatments may become more […]

Long lasting retinal photo-switch restores visual function after a single intra-ocular injection.

Scientists based at the University of California, Berkeley, have published results of a study showing how a small molecule “photo-switch” –a molecule that changes conformation in response to light– may be capable of restoring vision in models of retinal degeneration. The research results, published in Scientific Reports (DOI: 10.1038/srep45487) describes a third generation molecule named […]
