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 living-related donor for ocular surface reconstruction in patients with limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD).

To report a single case of donor-derived conjunctival-limbal melanoma that occurred after a keratolimbal allograft (KLAL).
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...
Simple limbal epithelial transplantation (SLET) and cultivated limbal epithelial transplantation (CLET) are proven clinical techniques for treating limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD). However, the ide...
Corneal and conjunctival dryness due to deficient tear production, predominantly in menopausal and post-menopausal women. Filamentary keratitis or erosion of the conjunctival and corneal epithelium may be caused by these disorders. Sensation of the presence of a foreign body in the eye and burning of the eyes may occur.
A pteridine derivative present in body fluids; elevated levels result from immune system activation, malignant disease, allograft rejection, and viral infections. (From Stedman, 26th ed) Neopterin also serves as a precursor in the biosynthesis of biopterin.
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.

Identification of the major histocompatibility antigens of transplant DONORS and potential recipients, usually by serological tests. Donor and recipient pairs should be of identical ABO blood group, and in addition should be matched as closely as possible for HISTOCOMPATIBILITY ANTIGENS in order to minimize the likelihood of allograft rejection.
