Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Doctor DanB : Im sorry, but the only eye centers around the world that are doing stem-cell trials for eye diseases are Moorfields Eye Hosoital in London and the Jukes Stein Eye Center at UCLA in Los Angeles. However, so far, they are only doing these trials on macular degeneration patients and only two patients total have had this done so far. Does that make sense?
