    Is ACTC the first mouse?

    We all know the theory behind the first mouse and the cheese.

    Lanza is a stem cell guy,not an eye guy. When ya look at the big wig eye guys and their approach the consenus is really to lay the cells down on a substrate. Lanza even admitted in an interview that they would need a contigency plan (biotech in a blink ) .

    New improved methods to lay those substrates down in a less invasive way are being discovered.. Coffey although way behind in effect has allowed ACTC to help shine the light on the safety issues. Will essentially a fabricated Bruch turn out to be a more effective method. Who will lead the way? Riken is probably the powerhouse. Or does RPE itself just take the back burner and photoreceptors are really the ticket.

    Odds are this first program of ACTC's will not be make it to market. It will however have helped pave the way to the ultimate success of stem cells and the eyes.
