Ellex Announces New Retina Regeneration Therapy to be Presented at the AAO

... preserve vision. Laboratory research conducted under Professor Marshall over the past few years has demonstrated that the Ellex 2RT method causes the rpe to migrate and release matrix metalloproteinase (MMP's), which are the enzymes that clean up Bruch's membrane. Further laboratory experiments to measu...

...was cultured from human embryonic stem cell lines. rpe are the cells that support the light sensing cells in the eye. The cultured rpe was then transplanted into the eyes of a special breed of rat that had an rpe defect, resulting in blindness. It was found that ...

Another feather in fish oil cap: hope against retinal degenerative diseases

... acid signaling, neuroprotection and photoreceptors.' Dr. Bazan's LSUHSC group, in collaboration with Harvard, has revealed the importance of DHA. rpe cells cope with sunlight and oxidative stress, as well as trauma, by using antioxidants like Vitamin E, present in the cells. Dr. Bazan and colleagues...

...-pigmented epithelium (RPE), a layer of cells near the retina. The accumulation of toxic pigments, or lipofuscin// results in the deterioration of the rpe leading to loss of rods and cones and subsequent central vision loss. Researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles, have now found ...
