  • Consequently, much of what we know concerning mechanisms of both corneal allograft acceptance and rejection are due to studies using a murine model of corneal transplantation. (jove.com)
  • In addition to describing a model for acute corneal allograft rejection, we also present for the first time a model of late-term corneal allograft rejection. (jove.com)
  • diseases
  • If that structure is disrupted by injury, infections or genetic diseases, the resulting corneal scarring can create permanent vision loss. (rpbusa.org)
