    First Patients Have Stem Cells Injected into Their Eyes to Test 'Cure' for Blindness

    A revolutionary technique that could restore sight to the blind is ready to be tested on people.
    Two women will have millions of embryonic stem cells injected into their eyes to try to heal damage done by hereditary disease and age-related macular degeneration, the most common form of blindness in the elderly.
    The initial trials will take place in the U.S. but it is hoped British patients will be tested in the autumn. If they all replicate the ‘phenomenal’ results of animal tests, millions of lives could be transformed in the future.

    Ouch!!

    However, on a much more serious note, having had a few childhood friends who were either partially or completely blind, I truly hope this new treatment will make their conditions reversible.

    God Bless the work and dedication of these researchers.
