Russian Scientists Grow Retina from Skin Cells

The Federal Physical-Chemical Medicine Research and Clinical Center have mastered growing retina by means of reprogramming cells.

      The possibility of such reprogramming of cells was first discovered by Japanese scientist Signe Yamanake. He noticed the ability of cells to move to an embryonic state, from which any tissue can be grown. According to the Centre's general director Vadim Govorun, such retinal transplants have already been performed in Europe and the US.

      The first surgeries of the kind will be carried out in Russia on patients suffering from hereditary macular degeneration.

      Vadim Govorun added that they managed to grow and transplant even brain neurons to laboratory animals. In the future it will be helpful in treatment of the Parkinson's disease.
