by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Stem cells have produced another scientific “miracle”– This time allowing a blind man to see with nearly perfect vision. Laci shows us the amazing procedure that has forever changed one man’s life.

ACT Confirms Clinical Trial Participant Showed Improvement in Vision from 20/400 to 20/40 Following Treatment

“Advanced Cell Technology, Inc.(“ACT”; OTCBB: ACTC), a leader in the field of regenerative medicine, today confirmed that the vision of a patient enrolled in a clinical investigation of the company’s retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells derived from human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) has improved from 20/400 to 20/40 following treatment.”

Stem Cell Restored Vision To Blind Man Using Human Embryos

“Stem cells restored the vision to a blind man who suffered from the degeneration of his retinal cells.”

Blindness eased by historic stem cell treatment

“For the first time since they were discovered 13 years ago, human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) have shown medical promise.”

Embryonic stem cell trials for macular degeneration: a preliminary report

“It has been 13 years since the discovery of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs). Our report provides the first description of hESC-derived cells transplanted into human patients.”

Okay, this I believe to be hogwash! wanna know why?? because we've been throwing billions of money toward the cures of all sorts of diseases since before my lifetime, with very little success!! SO, this I believe to be an attempt to promote Stem Cell research which has so far been banned because it encourages abortion for the use of said research!! DON'T ALWAYS BELIEVE WHAT YOU SEE, AND NEVER BELIEVE WHAT YOU HEAR!!

Its a wonderful anovation . I wish i could see those pts after treatment . Its news for hopeless people . Good luck for every one .

David duQuesnay December 11, 2013 - 1:17 AM

Just to clarify – ACT uses a blastomere procedure that DOES NOT DESTROY THE EMBRYO. The confusion is that for the initial round of the trial they had to use cells from an embryo that was destroyed because the other options were not yet approved (may still not be as yet). However going forward their treatments will be derived using the blastomere technique from which all the other stem cells will be derived from.

laci, is cute

@David duQuesnay Thanks for that info. Do you know (or someone else) where can I learn more on the latest stem cell research news online? Thanks

Is this girl stoned?

Science bitches!!!!

Fuck ethics shit if you'll cared about peserving life of fetus then you wouldn't let millions of babies die each year around world from preventive disease hypocrites are always the most vocal

I hope this will one day cure my diabetes and background retinopathy.

Kathie Hansen June 25, 2014 - 2:31 PM

Why do we have to endure this baby girl with her minnie mouse voice , in order to hear about this? She needs a different job, or learn how to speak

appleseedfanatic July 15, 2014 - 10:44 AM

About fu$king time people start using stem cells

appleseedfanatic July 15, 2014 - 10:45 AM

I'm for bringing the dead back to life. Middle finger to anyone who thinks that's insane

Dale Bryant July 29, 2014 - 2:48 PM

Ok, so I see a lot of uneducated people trying to speak on a subject that they know absolutely nothing about. I'm not a scientist so I'm not making a claim to know it all myself. But I do know how do to a little digging around and find the most recent information on any particular subject. So, here's my classroom lesson to those that are stuck in the 1980's science. Google, YouTube ect. Dr. Robert Lanza and by the way, he was just named by Time Magazine as on of the 100 most influential people in the world. Yes, I said the WORLD. When he speaks, People listen! His books, is what other dr.'s read and study.

Jesus healed many blind men 2014 years ago, before this.

David Toradze September 2, 2014 - 10:24 PM

laci green I have to say actcd clinical trials are not harming the embryo in anyway. Your research on this has been very wrong. Please repost a new video to amend your mistake.

neg 0 plus 0 September 19, 2014 - 1:53 PM

Capitalist 'religious' fucks who sell products to the suffering don't want cures! So, they create hypocritical 'moral' arguments to prevent progress and healing.

MG1 September 25, 2014 - 8:53 AM

let me guess, here come the religious fundamentalists who come say it's evil and against god's plan, kills babies, etc, etc.

fuck the right wing

Bernard Watts December 11, 2014 - 8:27 AM

Its said the body system heal our body parts that is damaged, just like we got wound , the body heal it to close and produce
another layer of skin. It may not be perfect but still the body cures the wound. Its about time that a good stem cells heal damaged part of our body with a little help from scientist and doctor. Theres a lot of people need healing from this stem cell procedure. They want to live a healthy and whole life so they could go on living, working in life.

Kolhado January 19, 2015 - 10:38 PM

But, can they cure this girl?

Ray Dan Cosca April 25, 2015 - 6:21 PM

Damn I love thick girls.

K Zpodindustries January 18, 2016 - 2:34 PM

My understanding is that embryonic stem cells have been cloned, therefore controversy over.

Red Arsenal February 23, 2016 - 2:15 PM

God created science. please don't find this comment offensive I respect your beliefs

Rick Fravor July 28, 2016 - 2:57 AM

so do you think this could work if the blindness is in the optic nerve as opposed to in the eye itself??? cuz that is my situation

Tobbe E September 28, 2016 - 4:21 AM

This gives me hope. I suffer from vision loss. Imagine what can happen in 10-20 years :)

Sajith Rajitha October 20, 2016 - 7:21 PM

My grandfather is totally blind from 10 years can they get well their eyes

羅積康 March 2, 2019 - 6:40 PM

Now five and half years past, any progress?

This kind of stem cell therapy is big pie in the sky.

Real stem cell therapy is to help endogenous adult stem cells (ASCs) to remove so-called
'inhibitory molecules' (all having high polarity) and regenerative potentials of ASCs can be
therefore turned on for repair of damaged tissue, ie. differentiation or dedifferentiation and proliferation.

Please browse http://www.godforeye.com.

Stargard can be effectively treated adn vision can be restored by nano-grade eye drops,
according to real human tests.

All glory belongs to God !

Sultan Noor April 2, 2019 - 12:24 PM

I lost my sight in my right eye back in 84 when I got hit by a drunk driver

羅積康 April 18, 2019 - 12:56 PM

What happen now? Nothing happens.

A lot of cheatings in stem cell therapy.

ch4Rlie August 11, 2019 - 11:42 PM

I really hope they're not using aborted fetal cells like they are using in vaccines……

DOMENIC KELLY October 23, 2019 - 10:07 PM

That's my little sister! Hi sis! You're killingggg ittttt! Mom says that I'm her favorite tho 0_o
