The goal of this study was to determine the cell origin of human pterygia. In order to determine the origin of these cells, longitudinal cryostat sections through five primary and two recurrent pterygia were studied immunohistochemically by finding limbal basal stem cell staining patterns as defined by monoclonal antibodies AE1 (staining positive) and AE5 (staining negative). In addition, sections were stained with antivimentin antibody. Altered limbal basal cells invading normal cornea along… CONTINUE READING
