Stem Cells/Cell Therapy in Ophthalmology Tables Updated

December 8, 2013

Thanks to an effort underway (and to be published in December by Mark Hellin, editor of The Ophthalmologist (UK), I learned of several new clinical trials (and companies/institutions) involved in using stem cells in treating ophthalmic disorders. Thus, with the new additions, I decided to update my online tables of stem cell use in ophthalmology.

The latest versions of the three tables list all of the companies/institutions involved, the applications being researched, and the status of the clinical trials underway, the later with live links to the individual clinical trials on clinicaltrials.gov.

The new tables are now available and can be accessed via this link to my blog.
