Neuronal cell death, glial cell activation, retinal swelling and oxidative injury are complications in retinal ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injuries. Lycium barbarum polysaccharides (LBP), extracts from the wolfberries, are good for "eye health" according to Chinese medicine. The aim of our present study is to explore the use of LBP in retinal I/R injury.(More)
Corneal blindness is a leading cause of vision loss globally. From a tissue engineering perspective, the cornea represents specific challenges in respect to isolating, stably expanding, banking, and effectively manipulating the various cell types required for effective corneal regeneration. The current research trend in this area focuses on a combined stem(More)
An immunoaffinity column (IAC) for cyclopiazonic acid (CPA) was prepared by coupling a CPA-specific monoclonal antibody to CNBr-activated sepharose 4B. A direct competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (dc-ELISA) was used to study the chromatographic behavior of a 0.2 mL gel column with a binding capacity of 4 micrograms CPA/column as well as to(More)
