Stem Cell Reports - Characterization of Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell-Derived Retinal Pigment Epithelium Cell Sheets Aiming for Clinical Application

Jacob Blumenthal's insight:

Researchers generated retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cell sheets from human pluripotent stem cells under optimized conditions, to meet clinical use requirements. These RPE cells expressed specific RPE markers and were further used in transplantation experiments in animal models.

Jacob Blumenthal's insight:

Researchers have bioprinted retinal ganglion cells (RGC) and glia from the retina of rats using an inkjet printer.

The open-access paper is available here: http://iopscience.iop.org/1758-5090/6/1/015001/article

Stem Cell Reports - Human RPE Stem Cells Grown into Polarized RPE Monolayers on a Polyester Matrix Are Maintained after Grafting into Rabbit Subretinal Space

Jacob Blumenthal's insight:

Human RPE stem cells (RPESC) can be isoated from ault human retina and further differentiate in-vitro into RPE cells. This paper describes the protocol for isolation and differentiation of these cells. The researchers suggest that RPESC can be used as an ault stem cell source for  for cell therapy of retina diseases, instead of the embryonic stem cells-derived RPE, that are currently being tested in clinical trials.
