 Nanopolymer technology helps transportation of eye stem cells without cool preservation - 'An Eye for eyes' mission moves forward




A Chennai based Indo-Japanese academic institute-Nichi-In Centre for Regenerative Medicine (NCRM) brings new treatment alternative for eye problems. Stem cells from discarded corneas can be used to create more cells and treat eye disorders. A nano polymer casing discovered by city based researchers assist in corneal stem cell transport without the cold temperature controlled boxes.
Tests were conducted to check if these cornea in warm weather and found that the endothelium was fine after 72 hours travel from Mumbai to Chennai. The stem cells were separated from the cornea and multiplied to form more corneal endothelial precursors i.e. stem cells which can be used to treat various eye disorders in needy patients.
