PURPOSE To characterize the fate of Lewis rat corneas transplanted to Hartley guinea pigs. METHODS Full-thickness Lewis rat corneal buttons were grafted orthotopically to Hartley guinea pigs (xenografts), ACI rats (allografts), or Lewis rats (isografts). Two panels of recipients were presensitized with xenogeneic skin grafts or allogeneic skin grafts.(More)
PROBLEM The field of health care is becoming a team effort as patient care becomes increasingly complex and multifaceted. Despite the need for multidisciplinary education, there persists a lack of student engagement and collaboration among health care disciplines, which presents a growing concern as students join the workforce. APPROACH In October 2013,(More)
Founded in 1912, the Federation of the American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) advances biological science through collaborative advocacy for research policies that promote scientific progress and education and lead to improvements in human health. FASEB is a federation of twenty-two not-for-profit scientific societies representing more than(More)
PURPOSE To isolate and characterize ciliary body epithelial antigens reactive with a monoclonal antibody, 2B4.14.1. METHODS A mouse monoclonal antibody generated against human corneal endothelium, 2B4.14.1 reacts with nonpigmented epithelium of human and guinea pig ciliary bodies. The ciliary body proteins reactive with 2B4.14.1 were identified by Western(More)
The antigenic composition of the human corneal endothelium, a cellular layer essential for maintaining corneal function, has not been well characterized. A novel corneal endothelial antigen was identified by generating a monoclonal antibody (MAb) against normal human corneal endothelial cells. This MAb, designated 2B4.14.1, reacted strongly by(More)
