The epithelium lining the center of the cornea is assumed to lack stem cells.The purpose is to investigate by autoradiography the regenerative capability of the epithelium lining the central region of the rabbit cornea following seven scrapings of its peripheral lining, during several months. After marking the center of the cornea with a 6 mm-diameter trephine, the epithelium outside this area was scraped until reaching the corneoscleral zone. This procedure was repeated seven times on the same… CONTINUE READING
