Retina

Scientific studies show that sub-retinal MSC transplantation delays retinal degeneration and preserves the function of the retina.

Furthermore, umbilical cord MSCs reveal a neuroprotective action.

Likewise, recent studies indicate that intravenous injection of MSCs prevents photoreceptor loss and preserves the vision in retinitis pigmentosa.

Glaucoma

Recent studies show that intravitreal MSCs transplantation acts as a neuro-protector increasing the survival of ganglion cells in glaucoma.

Corneal ulcer

Studies that are currently being published are showing that the use of MSCs in large severe corneal ulceration causes a significant decrease in axial corneal inflammation as well as a decrease in neovascularization, due to increase in anti-inflammatory cytokines, such as IL-10, and the secretion of TGFb, that assists in the healing of wounds.
