Mesenchymal stem cell transplantation in limbal stem cell deficiency – Development of precision medicine

Limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD) causes discomfort and reduced vision and is a major problem in ophthalmology. Today, the treatment is transplantation of allogenic limbal stem cells, but this has its limitations.

Mesenchymal stem cells are now emerging as a promising treatment option. The phase 1 clinical trial using these cells in patients with end-stage LSCD will be presented.
