Tissue engineered biomimetic corneas for promoting corneal regeneration

Christopher Ryan McLaughlin
Corneal transplantation with allograft tissue is currently the gold standard treatment for treating corneal damage following trauma or disease. However the supply of good quality donor tissue cannot meet the demand, especially in developing countries. Currently, the only alternative treatment option has been the use of corneal prostheses (keratoprostheses) but these do not permit integration with the host tissue. We utilized a regenerative medicine approach to enhance the natural ability of the cornea to regenerate...
