Presentation Description :
I will present the first two cases of the London Project in which a patch of hES-derived RPE was implanted into severe exudative AMD. We used a bespoke surgical tool to deliver the cells to the subretinal space in diseased eyes with severe vision loss. I will report the successful delivery, survival and function of hES-derived RPE at 12 and 9 months post-implantation respectively. Visual improvement in both patients was observed and improved over the 12month period.
