Successful Clinical Implementation of Corneal Epithelial Stem Cell Therapy for Treatment of Unilateral Limbal Stem Cell Deficiency
The corneal epithelium is maintained by a population of stem cells known as limbal stem cells (LSCs) due to their location in the basal layer of the outer border of the cornea known as the limbus.Expand

Successful Application of Ex Vivo Expanded Human Autologous Oral Mucosal Epithelium for the Treatment of Total Bilateral Limbal Stem Cell Deficiency
Ocular surface reconstruction with ex vivo expanded limbal stem cells (LSCs) is a widely used clinical treatment for patients with limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD). This is not applicable toExpand

Loss of corneal epithelial stem cell properties in outgrowths from human limbal explants cultured on intact amniotic membrane.
BACKGROUND The corneal epithelium is renewed by stem cells located at the limbus, the so-called limbal stem cells (LSCs). Absence, damage or loss of the LSC population leads to the painful andExpand
