Treatment of rabbit bullous keratopathy with precursors derived from cultured human corneal endothelium.

Abstract

PURPOSE To establish a method for the mass production of human corneal endothelium (HCE) precursors and the therapeutic application of these cells in a rabbit CE-deficiency model. METHODS A sphere-forming assay was performed to produce precursors from cultured HCE. Various marker expressions were examined in the sphere colonies, and their progenies by… (More)
