Exudates are usually located in or adjacent to the outer plexiform layer because they are lipid residues that originate from damaged capillaries in the inner retina, whereas drusen are deposits between the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and Bruch's membrane because the RPE is not functioning correctly.
NYSE MKT: BTX) has presented data from the ongoing open-label, dose escalation study related to OpRegen for dry form of AMD (dry-AMD) as an abstract titled, "Phase 1 and 2a Study of Human Stem Cell Derived Retinal Pigment Epithelial Cells Transplanted Subretinally in Advanced Dry-Form AMD Patients," at the annual American Academy of Ophthalmology in New Orleans, Louisiana, the company said.
It comprises a suspension of Retinal Pigment Epithelial (RPE) cells delivered subretinally during a simple intraocular injection.
OpRegen is an investigational therapy in which retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells are transplanted into the subretinal space, where they are intended to replace missing RPE cells.
With this new perspective, they began to consider innovative ways to use specialized cells in the eye, like retinal pigment epithelial cells and ganglion cells.
Our natural protection against damaging light of all wavelengths, primarily ultraviolet (UV) and blue, comes from a layer of pigmented cells called the retinal pigment epithelium.
In addition, Opsis Therapeutics will benefit from CDI's track record of successful development of cells for ultimate therapeutics use, such as the company's ongoing contract with the National Eye Institute to manufacture clinically compatible iPSC-derived human retinal pigment epithelial cells.

For years fluorescein angiography has been the main confirmatory investigation for central serous chorioretinopathy with typical presence of one or more leakage points in the retinal pigment epithelium, namely ink- blot and smoke-stack pattern of dye leak.
Advanced Cell has used embryonic stem cells to grow retinal pigment epithelial cells, a type of eye cell.
Serous retinal detachment may develop in consequence of choroidal involvement by leukemic cells causing retinal pigment epithelial disturbances or due to incompetence of the bloodretinal barrier inducing retinal pigment epithelial changes.
