Stem Cell Therapy in Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy (CP), a neurological disorder which affects the brain is caused by hypoxia resulting in many symptoms among which there could be cortical visual impairment (CVI).Most children with CP show decreased accommodative function which may or may not result in impaired learning.Treatment of visual impairment in children with CP is challenging, recent research in this area has shown considerable improvement with the use of stem cells in combination with neurotrophic agents.The use of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) has been explored recently for the treatment of CVI in children with CP.
