Survival and Migration of Pre-Induced Adult Human Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells in Retinal Degeneration Slow (Rds) Mice Three Months After Subretinal Transplantation.

Conclusion: Pre-induced adult hPBMCs survived for at least three months after subretinal transplantation, migrated throughout the retina, and expressed human protein markers. These results suggest that hPBMCs could be used for cell replacement therapy to treat retinal degenerative diseases.
