Mechanical and Cellular Changes During Compaction of a Collagen-Sponge-Based Corneal Stromal Equivalent


The need for corneas suitable for transplantation, combined with the decreasing supply, has fueled interest in the development of a corneal replacement. In this study, a collagen-sponge-based stromal equivalent, consisting of human corneal fibroblasts cultured on a type I collagen sponge, was maintained in culture for up to 21 days and characterized with… (More)
