Collagen films have been used in biological implantation and surgical grafts. The development of thin collagen films on the order of 10 microm thick that ensure a planar distribution of implanted cells is a necessary step towards surgical grafts for treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Here, collagen films were manufactured on a Teflon support to a thickness of 2.4+/-0.2 microm, comparable to that of native Bruch's membrane. Because one important function of Bruch's membrane is… CONTINUE READING
