Kinetics and function of mesenchymal stem cells in corneal injury.

PURPOSE Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) hold great promise for wound healing and tissue regeneration. In the present study, we investigated the impact of corneal injury on the homeostasis of endogenous MSCs, and the potential of MSCs to home to injured tissue and promote corneal repair. METHODS Corneal injury in mice was induced by… CONTINUE READING
