mcgrew (92797) writes "The AP (via Yahoo) is reporting that the Italians can now cure blindness caused by chemical burns using the patient's own stem cells. Previously, this kind of injury needed either a corneal transplant or stem cells from someone else, both of which are plagued by problems with tisue rejection.

Unfortunately, this only works for damaged corneas — so far."
