    Embryonic stem cells appear to restore some vision to legally blind patient
    By Rob Stein and David Brown,January 23, 2012

    For the first time, an experimental treatment made from human embryonic stem cells has shown evidence of helping someone, partially restoring sight to two people suffering from slowly progressing forms of blindness.

    Although the purpose of the experiment was to test the safety of stem cells injected into the eye, both patients “had measurable improvement in their vision that persisted through the duration of the study,” said Robert Lanza, chief scientific officer at Advanced Cell Technology, the Massachusetts biotech company that sponsored the closely watched experiment.

    The operations in July on two Southern California women yielded practical results. One of them no longer needs a large magnifying glass to read and can reportedly thread a needle. The other has begun to go shopping on her own.

    • Anyone else Excited. Isn't this why we are all here. To see if the injections help those not fortunate to see better. Any day they could announce News, Wow think where the stock could go if and I say IF good news. I personally do not want to be on the sidelines. Yes it is a gamble but the Gain IMO out sways the Risk.
