Embryos. Just read the comments. The average person has NO CLUE what stem cells are. They all think stem cells come from aborted babies and only aborted babies.


we need a serious marketing campaign once the $$$ starts coming in

I think that is a correct statement and I think has much to do with the bad quality of the press in the UK about the subject (mind you - the Brits manage to read the US media too...which does not help... :joy: :grin: :grin: )

Anyway- the only Uk stem cell Company of standing is ReNeuron which is similar to StemCells Inc... not going anywhere..any day soon. :whistle: and they have this "almost ESC type reputation".

Just to remind the reader- ADRCs- made by Cytori- are used in eye clinical trials too...

Moscow clinic on 16 patients with Open Angle Glaucoma

As a small explanation

A

lthough macular degeneration does not affect the disease process of glaucoma, it can contribute to decreased vision along with glaucoma.

The vision loss that may occur in glaucoma usually affects side vision, whereas macular degeneration tends to affect central vision. If both conditions arise, though not actively affecting each other, the visual impairment that may result will affect a larger area of vision than just glaucoma alone.

Age-related macular degeneration, often called AMD, usually affects older adults and results in a loss of vision in the center of the visual field (the macula) because of damage to the retina. It occurs in “dry” and “wet” forms, and is a major cause of blindness and visual impairment in adults over 50 years of age.

Board moderator and Site-owner. I still regret the day I started analysing the prospects of MacroPore (now Cytori) back in 2004- a left-over from the tech-bubble at that time from the century change in my portfolio- and became addicted to Cytori´s fat cell technology. :cry:
