The effects of growth factors on re-epithelialization of wounded human and bovine corneas were studied in a simple organ culture system. Excisional trephine and epithelial scrape wounds were created on bovine and human corneo-scleral rings in which the endothelial corneal concavity was then filled with an agar-collagen mixture. Organ culture was undertaken… CONTINUE READING
