Additional Information

Official title Ocular Surface Reconstruction With Cultivated Autologus Mucosal Epithelial Transplantation.
Principal investigator Pinnita Prabhasawat, MD
Description Ocular surface damage caused by severe ocular surface diseases. Corneal limbal stem cell transplantation has been demonstrated to improve the outcome of ocular surface reconstruction. However, the conventional management of allograft limbal transplantation generally has unsatisfactory outcome because of high risk of rejection and requires long-life immunosuppressive medications. Ocular surface reconstruction with cultivated autologous mucosal epithelial transplantation is served to improve the surgical results of ocular surface reconstruction and decrease the use of immunosuppressive medications
