Induced pluripotent stem cell therapies for retinal disease.

Abstract:

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review will discuss how recent advances with induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells have brought the science of stem cell biology much closer to clinical application for patients with retinal degeneration. RECENT FINDINGS: The ability to generate embryonic stem cells by reprogramming DNA taken from adult cells was demonstrated by the cloning of Dolly, the sheep, by somatic cell nuclear transfer, over 10 years ago. Recently, it has been shown that adult cells can be repr...
