The 126 consecutive eyes with endothelial
failure of 120 patients, who had corneal endothelial
decompensation and underwent femtosecond-assisted DSAEK using the VisuMax femtosecond laser system in the Department of Ophthalmology, Peking University 3rd Hospital, were included in the study.
In all the analysed images a regular pattern of size and shape of the endothelial
cells was observed throughout the entire cornea (Figure.
When these endothelial
cells are delivered in a gel, they are protected.
Lubna Hussain, Senior Global Product Manager for Primary Cells, Lonza, said: Lonza is committed to supporting the work of scientists and with endothelial
cells playing a crucial role in the pathology and treatment of many diseases, we felt it was important to create a centralized portal of materials to assist this research.
Editor's Note: "These findings indicate that the dietary intake of taurine and magnesium may prolong lifespan by facilitating the repair of impaired endothelial
functions and thereby prevent the progression of cardiovascular diseases," the authors observe.
However, upon stimulation of endothelial
cells by cytokines its concentration is significantly increased.
In the present study we have investigated the changes in the endothelial
cell count and cell's polymegathism and pleomorphism after SLT in OAG.
Diabetics show significantly lower corneal endothelial
cell count as compared with the normal population5.
In response to various injurious stimuli, vascular endothelial
cells express a broad variety of proteins  but only few of these have been studied in serum or plasma in patients with chronic liver disease.
cell count and central corneal thickness was measured (Using SP3000 P, TOPCON specular microscope with pachymeter on 3 occasions - 1 day prior to surgery, one day after surgery and 4 weeks after surgery.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether endothelial
MPs produce ROS and to evaluate the potential regulatory role of MP-derived ROS on EC signaling and vascular function.
A decade later Vogt identified drop-like endothelial
changes in the cornea, using slit lamp biomicroscopy, which are now termed guttae.
