Cell Therapy Center Inaugurates Ophthalmology and Dental Units
 

Two new units were inaugurated on Sunday, June 28, at UJ’s Cell Therapy Center (CTC).

The Ophthalmology and Dental Units were made possible with the support of Saudi Fund for Development at the cost of USD 750,000. The Dental Unit has been equipped with a very advanced dental chair and a 3D x-ray imaging unit.


The Ophthalmology Unit includes equipment capable of taking colored scans of the various strata of the cornea, as well as advanced equipment for retinal studies.

The CTC currently has three ongoing research projects on eye diseases; two on the cornea and one on the retina. A major cornea project on the treatment of resistant corneal ulcers is to be completed soon using a product developed by the CTC.

Preliminary analysis shows huge success, according to CTC Director, Prof. Awidi Abbadi.
 
As for the Dental Unit, Prof. Abbadi stated that the CTC has successfully isolated stem cells from four dental areas. Abbadi hopes these cells will be incorporated in the various regenerative projects at the center.
 
The CTC aspires to become a regional center of excellence in the fields of cell therapy and stem cell biology, and has recently managed to manufacture tissue-engineered bone graft.
