Paul S. Baker, M.D., and Gary C. Brown from the Retina Service, Wills Eye Institute, Jefferson Medical College, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, wrote an article “Stem-cell therapy in retinal disease” for Current Opinion in Ophthalmology 2009; 20:175-181. They stated on page 178 of the article:

Although some studies were unable to demonstrate any positive effect on vision, other patients transplanted with fetal retinal sheets showed improved visual acuity over time (up to 6 years) [57**, 58].

The unprecedented double starring of our article in the reference meant “of outstanding interest.”
