[Effect of recombinant human basic fibroblast growth factor (rh-bFGF) on wound healing of the corneal epithelium].

Abstract

Prior to a possible clinical trial in humans, we studied the wound-healing effect of RH-bFGF in vivo. Healing-rate measurements on 24 deepithelialized rabbit corneas were performed by means of computer-assisted image analysis. A significantly increased healing rate (P = 0.004) was revealed for the 200 ng FGF treated group (rate 1.57 mm2/h) compared to the… (More)
