Safety and Tolerability of MA09-hRPE Cells in Patients With Stargardt's Macular Dystrophy (SMD)

General Information

Summary The purpose of this study is: To evaluate the safety and tolerability of RPE cellular therapy in patients with SMD Group. When-MA09-hRPE cell transplantation to evaluate the safety of surgical procedures. In future studies intended to assess the number of transplanted hRPE cells. In the past, MA09-hRPE cell therapy used in the study was to evaluate the validity of the potential. Homologous retinal pigment epithelial cells derived from embryonic stem cells, future studies of drugs that are used in representing the potential validity to evaluate the optimal dose.
