stem cell treatment for retina pigmentossa

This petition had 21 supporters


There are millions of blind people in India who suffer from blindness due to retina pigmentossa whereby the tip of the optic nerve going from retina to the human brain has pigments which block passage of blood thru optic nerves resulting in blurred or zero vision to blind people.  The Health Ministry of our country during past sixty years did nothing to restore vision to the blind people with the result they are unable to see the world before them.  Lack of attention by  Health Ministry in the past sixty years resulted in zero progress though eye foundations and research institutions notably LV Prasad Eye Institute at Hyderabad under the able leadership of Dr Subhadra Jalali are doing their best to find a solution thru stem cell treatments which is still in the trial stages in India.  Apollo Hyderabad did try the Enkad treatment with Russian Research Team but it had to stop this treatment due to objections from IMA and lack of support from the then Health Minister.  Thus these unfortunate blind citizens of India cannot see the sun rise in their life.  My humble request to PM Modi and the health ministry is to give priority to this neglected area of  restoring  eye sight  by passing legislation to empower eye institutes to start  stem cell treatment to all blind people  for restoring vision/ eye sight which is  also a fundamental right of every citizen of this country.  JAI HIND
