Bone marrow-derived stem cells preserve cone vision in retinitis pigmentosa

J Clin Invest. 2004 Sep;114(6):755-7. Bone marrow-derived stem cells preserve cone vision in retinitis pigmentosa. Smith LE. Source Department of Ophthalmology, Children’s Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA. lois.smith@childrens.harvard.edu Abstract Retinitis pigmentosa is a heritable group of blinding diseases resulting from loss of photoreceptors, primarily rods and secondarily cones, that mediate central vision. Loss of retinal…

10 years of intracoronary and intramyocardial bone marrow stem cell therapy of the heart: from the methodological origin to clinical practice

J Am Coll Cardiol. 2011 Sep 6;58(11):1095-104. Strauer BE, Steinhoff G. Source Heinrich-Heine University of Duesseldorf, Duesseldorf, Germany. Abstract Intracoronary and intramyocardial stem cell therapy aim at the repair of compromised myocardium thereby–as a causal treatment–preventing ventricular remodeling and improving overall performance. Since the first-in-human use of bone marrow stem cells (BMCs) after acute myocardial…
