Ciska – Glaucom Pacient Celule Stem

Glaucomul Ciskai a evoluat brusc si a lasat-o fara vedere, la ambii ochi. Ea si-a pierdut vederea periferica. Ea insasi a constatat ca locuieste intr-o metropola, si va trebui sa se foloseasca de vederea care i-a mai ramas, pentru a se descurca.

Medicii i-au spus ca ei ar putea opri progresul glaucomului, dar ca nu i-ar putea recupera vederea. Ciska a auzit despre imbunatatirile altor pacienti cu aceeasi problema optica, care au efectuat transplanturile cu celule stem adulte, si a decis sa urmeze si ea tratamentul.

Medicii care au tratat-o, si, Beike Biotech, furnizorul de celule stem, au intrebat-o daca a retinut care sunt imbunatatirile, pe care le-a inregistrat destul de rapid. Ea a observat o imbunatatire semnificativa legata de vederea ei periferica, la mai putin de o ora dupa primul ei transplant intravenos. Ciska Voors, 39 ani, Africa de Sud, Glaucom cu unghi deschis
