Will Stem Cell Therapies Bring a Cure for Congenital Ptosis?
FEB 10, 2014
Medicine is at the very beginning of exploring the potential of gene and stem cell therapy. We believe these therapies have great promise. A great deal of research is being conducted utilizing these therapies. To my knowledge, the treatment of congenital ptosis has not yet been explored with these research therapies. Your son, however, is young, and in his lifetime innovative treatments may become available. Stay in touch with your ophthalmologist. She/he is likely to stay informed of research developments and communicate these ideas to you.
