In an article for UCSB - The Current, Britney Pennington and Lincoln Johnson discuss how novel cryopreservation methods enable long-term storage and worldwide distribution of a cellular therapy for age-related macular degeneration.
In a paper published in the journal Scientific Reports, RPT scientists in collaboration with colleagues at the University of California Santa Barbara and the University of Southern California report a novel cryopreservation technique that facilitates long-term storage of RPT’s CPCB-RPE1 ocular implants. This technique will greatly enhance the ability to widely distribute the implants and increase the number AMD patients that are able to receive the treatment.
