The purpose of the study is to explore whether femtosecond laser-assisted corneal epithelial allograft from living-related donor is more effective than limbal conjunctival allograft from l...
The purpose of this study is to elucidate the appropriate condition of developing cultivated corneal epithelial graft and evaluate the surgical outcome of transplantation of the cultivate...
The study " Autologous cultured corneal epithelium (CECA) for the treatment of unilateral corneal lesions associated with limbal stem cell deficiency" is the first clinical trial of this p...
The aim of this review is to describe the underlying mechanisms of corneal epithelial homeostasis in addition to illustrating the vital role of the limbal epithelial stem cells (LESCs) and the limbal ...
Autophagy and macropinocytosis are processes that are vital for cellular homeostasis, and help cells respond to stress and take up large amounts of material, respectively. The limbal and corneal epith...
To investigate toxicity associated with buffers commonly used in topical ocular drug formulations using a human corneal-limbal epithelial (HCLE) and a human conjunctival epithelial (HCjE) cell model.
Limbal epithelial stem cells (LSCs), located in the basal layer of the corneal epithelium in the corneal limbus, are vital for maintaining the corneal epithelium. LSCs have a high capacity of self-ren...
In humans, regeneration of the corneal epithelium is regulated by the stem cell reservoir of the limbus. After extensive limbal damage, e.g., by inflammation, thermal burn or chemical injury, limbal s...
New blood vessels originating from the corneal veins and extending from the limbus into the adjacent CORNEAL STROMA. Neovascularization in the superficial and/or deep corneal stroma is a sequel to numerous inflammatory diseases of the ocular anterior segment, such as TRACHOMA, viral interstitial KERATITIS, microbial KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS, and the immune response elicited by CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION.
A type I keratin that is found associated with the KERATIN-3 in the CORNEA and is regarded as a marker for corneal-type epithelial differentiation. Mutations in the gene for keratin-12 have been associated with MEESMANN CORNEAL EPITHELIAL DYSTROPHY.
A type II keratin that is found associated with the KERATIN-12 in the CORNEA and is regarded as a marker for corneal-type epithelial differentiation. Mutations in the gene for keratin-3 have been associated with MEESMANN CORNEAL EPITHELIAL DYSTROPHY.
An autosomal dominant form of hereditary corneal dystrophy due to a defect in cornea-specific KERATIN formation. Mutations in the genes that encode KERATIN-3 and KERATIN-12 have been linked to this disorder.
The measurement of curvature and shape of the anterior surface of the cornea using techniques such as keratometry, keratoscopy, photokeratoscopy, profile photography, computer-assisted image processing and videokeratography. This measurement is often applied in the fitting of contact lenses and in diagnosing corneal diseases or corneal changes including keratoconus, which occur after keratotomy and keratoplasty.
