PURPOSE To evaluate the effects of corneal cross-linking on keratocytes and collagen fibres in human corneas. METHODS Fifteen corneal buttons were examined. Ten were from patients with keratoconus submitted to penetrating keratoplasty and five of them were treated with cross-linking 6 months before penetrating keratoplasty. Five normal corneal buttons from healthy donors were used as controls. All samples were prepared for TUNEL assay and Western blot analysis for the detection of keratocyte… CONTINUE READING
