Two sublines of a breast epithelial cell culture, MCF-10, derived from human fibrocystic mammary tissue exhibit immortality after extended cultivation in low calcium concentrations (0.03-0.06 mM) and floating transfers in low calcium (MCF-10F), or by trypsin-Versene passages in the customary (normal) calcium levels, 1.05 mM (MCF-10A). Both sublines have(More)
Although it is well known that epidermal growth factor (EGF) accelerates corneal epithelial wound healing by stimulating mitosis, it is also believed that EGF may directly stimulate the motility of individual corneal epithelial cells. We employed three different experimental methods to determine if EGF does indeed enhance the motility of corneal epithelial(More)

Corneal edema from congenital glaucoma is a rare indication for penetrating keratoplasty. We report the complications and problems associated with eight consecutive penetrating keratoplasties performed in adult eyes with a history of congenital glaucoma. Only 25% of the eyes achieved 20/40 or better vision after surgery. These generally poor results can be(More)
