Adult stem cells restore child's sight
Two-year-old Elio Burgos, who was born blind, is now able to see, thanks to a series of adult stem-cell treatments.

Elio was diagnosed with optic nerve hypoplasia, an underdeveloped optic nerve. His mother found a hospital in China that offered umbilical cord stem-cell treatments that could improve her son's sight. The Florida family flew to China so Elio could undergo the treatments.

Now, fewer than three months after his treatments - a series of cell injections consisting of 10 to 15 million healthy umbilical cord stem cells - Elio's eyesight has gone from 20/1200 to 20/200 and will hopefully continue to improve during the next seven months.
