Scientists Find Way to Fast-Track Production of Stem Cells that Show Promise in Treating AMD

rect pluripotent stem cells to RPE with a similar efficiency,” Dr. Clegg explained. “Through the combined use of the retinal inducing factors IGF1, Noggin, Dkk1, bFGF and other factors added at specific times, we found that pluripotent stem cells could be directed to RPE, also with an efficiency of about 80 percent — and it only took 14 days. ”

“Protocols currently being used to generate RPE cells take months; this protocol should be useful for quickly generating quantities of RPE cells for transplantation as well as for the study of RPE development,” Dr. Buchholz added.

“This report is important because stem cell derived RPE are currently in clinical trials for the treatment of age related macular degeneration and Stargardt disease,” said Anthony Atala, M.D., Editor of STEM CELLS Translational Medicine and director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine. “The protocol could prove useful for rapidly generating banks of cells for treating these conditions.”
