Retina repair, stem cells and beyond.

Curr Neurovasc Res 2004 Jul;1(3):231-9

Department of Zoology, Miami University, Oxford, OH 45056, USA.

In this review, we will explore several studies where stem cells from neural, non-neural and even embryonic cells have been used as potential sources to repair the damage retina. In addition, we will also discuss the possibility of inducing retina regeneration by transdifferentiation of cells present in existing eye tissues, such as, the Retinal Pigmented Epithelium (RPE), the Pigmented Ciliary Margin (PCM) and Müller glia cells.
