Cell-Based Therapy (CBT)

Using cell transplants or stem cells to treat a retinal degenerative disease.

Cell-Based Therapy (CBT) is one of the Foundation's seven research priority areas. Scientists and clinicians are testing treatments for retinal degenerative diseases with stem cell and retinal transplants. This therapy has the potential to treat all retinal degenerative diseases, even in those people who have completely lost all photoreceptor and/or RPE cells.
