Epidermal growth factor in the tear fluid: responsible for postoperative refraction and “haze” after PRK?

Abstract

Background: Corneal wound healing is of critical importance for the postoperative outcome of excimer laser PRK. Wound healing is a complex biological process that is well characterised at the microscopic level, but its regulation is poorly understood at the molecular level. Among various cytokines, epidermal growth factor (EGF) plays an important role in… (More)
