Researchers find stem cells in normal and Fuchs corneal endothelium

(Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary) Researchers from Massachusetts Eye and Ear have, for the first time, identified rapidly proliferating cells (known as 'neural crest-derived progenitor cells') in the corneal endothelium of specimens from normal corneas and from corneas with Fuchs' Endothelial Corneal Dystrophy (FECD), a condition in which the cells responsible for keeping the cornea clear die prematurely -- often leading to blindness.
