What end goals are researchers striving to achieve with this experiment?

"The primary goal of this 6-month long study is to determine the practicality of administering autologous CD34+ cells intravitreally. Other important metrics for evaluation include Electroretinography (with an emphasis on changes in "a" and "b" wave amplitude from baseline), National Eye Institute Vision Questionnaire results, and Microperimetry scores (measuring change in reduced sensitivity)."

Answered by AI

Has the FDA sanctioned Intravitreal autologous CD34+ cells for use in treatment?

"The safety of Intravitreal autologous CD34+ cells is thought to be low, as evidenced by its rating of 1. This assessment reflects the fact that this clinical trial is in Phase 1 and there are limited data demonstrating efficacy or safety."
