Bioengineering Approaches for Corneal Regenerative Medicine

Since the cornea is responsible for transmitting and focusing light into the eye, injury or pathology affecting any layer of the cornea can cause a detrimental effect on visual acuity. Aging is also a reason for corneal degeneration. Depending on the level of the injury, conservative therapies and donor tissue transplantation are the most common treatments for corneal diseases. Not only is there a lack of donor tissue and risk of infection/rejection, but the inherent ability of corneal cells and layers to regenerate has led to research in regenerative approaches and treatments.

The proof of principle work is going well.

To overcome the severe worldwide shortage of donor corneal tissue for transplantation, tissue engineering approaches are being developed.

It was encouraging to hear of the furthering developments and the cutting edge work being carried out. 

"Injection of autologous adipose-derived stem cells and corneal decellularized laminas has shown promising results in studies at 3 years, both in terms of increasing corneal thickness and improving vision, Alió said."
