PURPOSE To investigate the role of hyaluronan and its receptor CD44 in capsular repair, their localization in opacified human posterior capsules and in lens epithelial cells (LECs) was assayed. SETTING Research laboratory, Department of Ophthalmology, Wakayama Medical College, Japan. METHODS In 8 patients, circular sections of the anterior capsules obtained during cataract surgery, the extracted crystalline lens, and the opacified lens capsules resulting from intraocular lens implantation… CONTINUE READING
