The Influence of Rejection Episodes in Recipients of Bilateral Corneal Grafts
We investigated whether a rejection episode in one graft was associated with rejection in the other graft, in recipients with bilateral corneal transplants. In a prospectively maintained, national register of 14 ...
The outcome of corneal transplantation in infants, children, and adolescents
OBJECTIVE: To examine factors affecting penetrating corneal graft survival and visual outcomes in patients aged less than 20 years. DESIGN: Large prospective, cohort study. PARTICIPANTS: Records of 14 865 followed ...
The inﬂuence of cervical and thoracic lymphadenectomy on corneal allograft rejection in inbred rats
(BMJ Group, 2011-11-23)
Aim To investigate the site of alloantigen presentation in the rat following orthotopic corneal transplantation. Methods Adult inbred Fischer 344 rats received penetrating corneal allografts from inbred Wistar Furth donors ...
Gene therapy for corneal dystrophies and disease, where are we?
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2012-07)
We assess studies on vector systems for delivery of transgenes to the cornea that have been published over the last year, and summarise new work on the identification of specific transgenes for corneal diseases. Recent ...
A Comparison of Lamellar and Penetrating Keratoplasty Outcomes: A Registry Study
Repeat penetrating corneal transplantation in patients with keratoconus
To determine factors influencing penetrating corneal graft survival in patients receiving repeat grafts in the same eye after a failed first graft for keratoconus, a large cohort study was conducted from a national register ...
Oral Mucosal Epithelial Cells Grown on Porous Silicon Membrane for Transfer to the Rat Eye
(Springer Nature, 2017-08-30)
Dysfunction of limbal stem cells or their niche can result in painful, potentially sight-threatening ocular surface disease. We examined the utility of surface-modified porous-silicon (pSi) membranes as a scaffold for the ...
Influence of format on in vitro penetration of antibody fragments through porcine cornea
(BMJ Publishing Group - http://bjo.bmjjournals.com/, 2005-09)
AIM: Antibody fragments, appropriately formulated, can penetrate through the ocular surface and thus have potential as therapeutic agents. The aim was to investigate the influence of protein fragment format on the kinetics ...

(BMJ Publishing Group - http://bjo.bmjjournals.com/, 1997-10)
AIMS: The aims of this study were to examine the influence of advanced recipient and donor age on the long term outcome of corneal transplantation. METHODS: Records of 1036 penetrating corneal grafts in recipients aged > ...
