Researchers transplant retinal sheets derived from human embryonic stem cells in retinal degeneration mouse models

Researchers affiliated with the Kawasaki INnovation Gateway at SKYFRONT have developed new mouse models of retinal degeneration that enable transplantation of retinal sheets derived from human embryonic stem cells. These results are reported in the journal Stem Cell Reports and show their approach to be promising for the treatment of retina degeneration by transplanting retinal tissue derived from embryonic or induced pluripotent stem cells.
