Nano-based corneal stem cell transplant gets Japanese patent: NCRM

Chennai, Jan 22 (UNI): The Corneal endothelial precursor cell
transplantation methodology, employing a Nanocomposite gel
sheet, has been awarded a Japanese patent to Nichi-in Centre
for Regenerative Medicine (NCRM) and their Japanese
collaborators.
This patent, when licensed to interested institutes,
would help a large number of patients suffering from
standalone corneal endothelial diseases, recover from
visual morbidities, said Yoshio Morozumi, Chairman
of Nichi-In from Tokyo, Japan.
''Our finding gives a new hope to such patients, as
it is now considered that there is no treatment available
for regenerating the damaged corneal endothelial cells,
except to do a corneal transplantation either fully or
partially, which again is marred by the shortage of
donor-corneas'', he said, according to a NCRM release
here today.
