Update from Maurie Hill – Patient Participating in Clinical Trial to Treat Stargardt’s With Stem Cells

October 16, 2012

As I first wrote in early August, Maurie Hill is participating in the stem cell-derived clinical trial sponsored by Advanced Cell Technology (Nasdaq: ACTC) to treat her Stargardt’s disease.

I suggested that she write about her experiences in the clinical trial and she is doing that.

I also introduced her to Ricki Lewis of The Forever Fix: Gene Therapy and the Boy Who Saved It fame, and Ricki has written an article for PLOS One about Maurie and the clinical trial.

Follow this link  to read Maurie’s story as told to Ricki, in more detail.
