CB-PRP in Retinitis Pigmentosa (SiCord)

Brief Summary:
The study will provides the enrollment of patients with genetic retinal dystrophies with primary rod impairment.

A subretinal injection of umbilical cord blood platelet-rich plasma (CB-PRP) will be performed only in one eye, the other eye will be considered as a control group.

A complete morpho-functional ophthalmological evaluation will be performed in all patient at each control.

Detailed Description:
All patients underwent genetic evaluation and they reported different types of mutations that induce anatomic-functional impairment of the rods.

After selecting the patients to be enrolled, the study will proceed with the vitrectomy surgery and a subretinal injection of umbilical cord blood platelet-rich plasma (CB-PRP) provided by the Umbilical Cord Bank according to the procedures provided for by the current legislation on blood components for non-transfusion use.

A complete ophthalmological examination will be performed at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months. They will include:
- Anterior segment biomicroscopy
- direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy
- ETDRS visual acuity assessment
- intraocular pressure measurement
- optical coherence tomography (OCT)
- OCT Angiography (OCTA)

The following assessments will be performed at baseline and at 6 and 12 months.
- Microperimetry
- ERG (elettroretinogramma) -
- PEV (potenziali evocati visivi)
- contrast sensitivity (MARS tables)
- Goldmann perimetry

The some morpho-functional data will also be collected in the contralateral eye and used as control group.

To ensure the best safety for the patient, the first 5 eyes will be separated by a minimum of 20 days in order to observe the post-surgical evolution.
