Stem Cells May Treat Corneal Scars


Stem cells from wisdom teeth may be useful in treating corneal scarring.

"Stem cells collected from human corneas restore transparency and don't trigger a rejection response when injected into eyes that are scarred and hazy, according to experiments conducted by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Their study has been published in the journal Stem Cells."
