We are getting there. Slowly but surely. I am glad to hear this. I hope the patients are followed over the next 5-10 years.

Great news. One of my favourite people had untreatable wet-type macular degeneration, it drove him to despair and almost madness. He died a very unhappy man, virtually blind. If he'd been able to access something like this, his last years would have been much better. I suppose one potential limitation to this treatment is the supply of donated retinas, but it's great that modern medicine keeps coming up with treatments like this.

Do these same type of cells work with liver regeneration?
