This special series is very timely since there has been a recent increase in the momentum of translational research in ocular regeneration. This increase stems partially from the success of ocular gene therapy. This special eye series includes review and original articles of novel tools and therapies being developed for ocular regeneration. The goal of this eye series is to provide some overview of the latest research being done in the area of ocular regeneration in order to highlight the broad potential in this field.
Analysis of the retinal capillary plexus layers in a murine model with diabetic retinopathy: effect of intravitreal injection of human CD34+ bone marrow stem cells
Subretinal versus intravitreal administration of human CD34+ bone marrow-derived stem cells in a rat model of inherited retinal degeneration
The focused issue “Novel Tools and Therapies for Ocular Regeneration” was commissioned by the editorial office, Annals of Translational Medicine without any sponsorship or funding. Susanna S. Park is serving as the unpaid Guest Editor for the focused issue.
