A Stem Cell-Based Therapy for Retinitis Pigmentosa: The Patient's Perspective

Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a genetic disease that gradually destroys the light sensing nerve cells, called photoreceptors, located in the retina at the back of the eye. In this video, Rosalinda and German Barrero speak about the devastating impact of RP on their lives and their excitement about a soon to begin CIRM-funded stem cell-based clinical trial for the treatment of RP. See our fact sheet for more about CIRM-funded vision loss research.
