  1. 'Blind man regrows eyes after pioneering stem cell treatment.' Jeremy Armstrong 23/12/09

    "A man blinded 15 years ago can see again after pioneering stem cell treatment.
    Russell Turnbull, 38, had ammonia squirted into his right eye after he tried to break up a
    row on a bus. His attacker caused massive damage to his cornea and left him with Limbal
    Stem Cell Deficiency. But Russell can finally see again after stem cells were taken from
    his good eye and grown in a lab. They were then implanted in the damaged eye and began
    to function as normal without any rejection."
