    Bad news for ACT

    Easy and Effective Therapy to Restore Sight: Engineered Virus Will Improve Gene Therapy for Blinding Eye Diseases

    SortNewest  |  Oldest  |  Most Replied Expand all replies
    • Hey, as quoted in the article, i.e. ""Three groups of researchers have successfully restored some sight to more than a dozen people with a rare disease called Leber's congenital amaurosis, which leads to complete loss of vision in early adulthood. "" I would question, that, 3 researcher groups have successfully restored some sight to more that a dozen people /rare disease etc.... etc.... . I would tend to believe that it's a fault statement, since they haven't done Clinical Trials yet. Unless, they referring to approx 12 ACT's patients. OR, unless they are injecting stem cells as ACT does and unless, they have violated ACT patent technology. In short, it sound like the same injection procedure but they are calling it engineered virus instead of stem cells.
