Cultured corneal epithelia for ocular surface disease. (1/65)

PURPOSE: To evaluate the potential efficacy for autologous and allogeneic expanded corneal epithelial cell transplants derived from harvested limbal corneal epithelial stem cells cultured in vitro for the management of ocular surface disease. METHODS: Human Subjects. Of the 19 human subjects included, 18 (20 procedures) underwent in vitro cultured corneal epithelial cell transplants using various carriers for the epithelial cells to determine the most efficacious approach. Sixteen patients (18 procedures on 17 eyes) received autologous transplants, and 2 patients (1 procedure each) received allogeneic sibling grafts. The presumed corneal epithelial stem cells from 1 patient did not grow in vitro. The carriers for the expanded corneal epithelial cells included corneal stroma, type 1 collagen (Vitrogen), soft contact lenses, collagen shields, and amniotic membrane for the autologous grafts and only amniotic membrane for the allogeneic sibling grafts. Histologic confirmation was reviewed on selected donor grafts. Amniotic membrane as carrier. Further studies were made to determine whether amniotic membrane might be the best carrier for the expanding corneal epithelial cells. Seventeen different combinations of tryspinization, sonication, scraping, and washing were studied to find the simplest, most effective method for removing the amniotic epithelium while still preserving the histologic appearance of the basement membrane of the amnion. Presumed corneal epithelial stem cells were harvested and expanded in vitro and applied to the amniotic membrane to create a composite graft. Thus, the composite graft consisted of the amniotic membrane from which the original epithelium had been removed without significant histologic damage to the basement membrane, and the expanded corneal epithelial stem cells, which had been applied to and had successfully adhered to the denuded amniotic membrane. Animal model. Twelve rabbits had the ocular surface of 1 eye damaged in a standard manner with direct removal of the presumed limbal stem cells, corneal epithelium, and related epithelium, followed by the application of n-heptanol for 60 seconds. After 6 weeks, all damaged eyes were epithelialized and vascularized. Two such treated eyes were harvested without further treatment, to be used for histologic study as damaged controls. The remaining 10 rabbits received composite grafts (consisting of amniotic membrane with expanded allogeneic rabbit corneal epithelial cell transplants) applied to the ocular surface in a standard manner followed by the application of a contact lens. At 16 days following transplantation, 5 of the rabbits were sacrificed and the corneal rims were removed for histologic study. At 28 days, the remaining rabbits were sacrificed and the previously damaged eyes were harvested for histologic and immunohistochemical study. RESULTS: Human subjects. Of the 19 total patients admitted to the study, the presumed corneal epithelial stem cells of 1 patient did not grow in vitro. Of the remaining 18 patients (20 procedures, 19 eyes), 3 patients had unsuccessful results (3 autologous procedures), 1 patient had a partially successful procedure (allogeneic procedure), and 1 patient had a procedure with an undetermined result at present (allogeneic procedure). One unsuccessful patient had entropion/trichiasis and mechanically removed the graft and eventually went into phthisis. The other 2 unsuccessful patients suffered presumed loss of autologous donor epithelium and recurrence of the ocular surface disease (pterygium). The partially successful patient receiving an allogeneic transplant had infectious keratitis delay of his re-epithelialization; he has only minimal visual improvement but has re-epithelialized. The patient receiving the second allogeneic graft lost his donor epithelium at day 4. Additional donor epithelium was reapplied, but the result is undetermined at present. Amniotic membrane as carrier. The in vitro preparation of the amniotic membrane with corneal epithelial stem cell graft overlay was successful. Histology documented removal of the amniotic epithelium and reapplication of corneal epithelial cells. Animal model. The 2 rabbits that had no reparative surgery following standard ocular surface injury had histology and immunopathology consistent with incomplete corneal epithelial stem cell failure with vascularization and scarring of the ocular surface. Light microscopy and immunohistologic staining with AE5 confirmed the conjunctival phenotype of the ocular surface repair but also documented the incomplete model. The allogeneic stern cell transplants had varying results. One rabbit had a suppurative infection and lost the graft. Reparative surgery failed in 2 of the rabbits, failed partially in 3 of the rabbits, was partially successful in 3 others, and was successful in 1 rabbit at 28 days. Histologic and immunopathologic study documented successful growth of corneal epithelium onto the recipient surface. CONCLUSIONS: 1. Presumed corneal epithelial stem cells can be harvested safely from the limbus and expanded successfully in vitro. 2. Expanded corneal epithelial cell cultures can be grown onto various carriers, but currently denuded amniotic membrane seems to be the best carrier for ocular surface repair. 3. Expanded corneal epithelial cell transplants appear to resurface damaged ocular surfaces successfully, but cellular tracking and further confirmation are required. 4. Expanded allogeneic corneal epithelial cell transplants are technically possible and may represent alternative treatment modalities for selected ocular surface problems. 5. These techniques potentially offer a new method of restoring a normal ocular surface while minimizing the threat of damage or depletion to the contralateral or sibling limbal corneal epithelial stem cells. 6. The rabbit model was probably incomplete and should be interpreted with caution. The complete eradication of all corneal epithelial stem cells from any eye is difficult, making confirmation of such work challenging. 7. The results of the rabbit model suggest that allogeneic grafts may restore a nearly normal ocular epithelial surface to certain ocular surface injuries.  (+info)

Modulation of acute inflammation and keratocyte death by suturing, blood, and amniotic membrane in PRK. (2/65)

PURPOSE: To investigate the role of acute inflammation in keratocyte death, which may influence corneal haze after photorefractive keratectomy (PRK). METHODS: Transepithelial PRK was performed on both eyes of 30 rabbits. Twenty-six rabbits were divided into 4 groups receiving autologous blood, suturing alone, suturing with amniotic membrane graft, or no treatment as the control. Twenty-four hours later, the ablated zone was analyzed for keratocyte death by TdT-dUTP terminal nick-end label (TUNEL) staining and transmission electron microscopy, for polymorphonuclear cell (PMN) infiltration by hematoxylin-eosin staining, and for oxygen radical-induced lipid peroxidation by malondialdehyde immunohistochemistry. The remaining four rabbits were subjected to PRK or mechanical scraping and analyzed immediately or after culturing for 24 hours. RESULTS: Compared with the control group where TUNEL-positive keratocytes were found only in the superficial ablated stroma, blood application or suturing caused more and deeper keratocyte death and PMN infiltration (P: < 0.05). The amniotic membrane graft group had less keratocyte death and PMN than the control or the suture group (P: < 0.05 and P: < 0.01, respectively). There was a strong correlation between keratocyte death and PMN infiltration (P: < 0.01, correlation factor = 0.786). Transmission electron microscopy revealed that the majority of keratocyte death was due to necrosis. Amniotic membrane stroma trapped and prevented PMN infiltration into the stroma. Malondialdehyde-modified antigen was found on the ablated surface and around infiltrated PMN. CONCLUSIONS: Transepithelial PRK causes oxygen radical-mediated lipid peroxidation on the superficial stroma and may contribute to superficial keratocyte death even in the absence of inflammation. Mechanical scraping leads to apoptosis without the participation of inflammation. Keratocyte death by necrosis spreads to the deeper part of the stroma and correlates with additional acute inflammation. Amniotic membrane precludes PMN infiltration and decreases lipid peroxidation and keratocyte death. Future studies are needed to discern whether prevention of inflammation-mediated keratocyte necrosis can reduce unwanted scarring caused by PRK.  (+info)

Bacterial contamination of amniotic membrane. (3/65)

AIM: In the light of interest being shown in amniotic membrane grafts for use in ocular surgery, this study aims to identify the bacterial contaminants commonly found on placental membranes from both caesarean and vaginal deliveries. METHODS: Samples of placental membrane were taken following both elective caesarean and normal vaginal deliveries. Bacterial contaminants were identified. RESULTS: All samples were contaminated. A greater number of different species were recovered from the vaginal deliveries, including several which were actually or potentially pathogenic. CONCLUSION: There is a greater risk of contamination from pathogenic bacteria on placentas from vaginal deliveries. It is recommended that amnion for use in ocular surface procedures should be retrieved only from placentas following elective caesarean deliveries.  (+info)

Effects of amniotic membrane on epithelial wound healing and stromal remodelling after excimer laser keratectomy in rabbit cornea. (4/65)

AIMS: To investigate if the amniotic membrane (AM) promotes epithelial migration while inhibiting stromal remodelling associated with corneal haze after excimer laser keratectomy. METHODS: A wound 150 microm in depth and 6.0 mm in diameter was produced in 40 rabbits using an excimer laser. One eye was randomly chosen to be covered by the AM while the other eye served as a control. Epithelial wound healing was evaluated, together with any morphological changes of the anterior stroma connected with corneal haze. These morphological changes were histopathologically analysed using dichlortriazinyl aminofluorescein (DTAF), Masson trichrome staining, and an image analyser. RESULTS: The AM group had a short latent phase followed by fast epithelial healing (p<0.001) during the early wound healing period and a significant decrease in the inflammatory response, together with a smaller change in the number of keratocytes than the control group. The mean thickness of the regenerated stroma was significantly thinner in the AM group than in the control group at 8 weeks (p<0.0001). The AM group had a more regular architecture of regenerated stromal lamella at 8 weeks and significantly less haze after 4 weeks than the control group (p<0.05). CONCLUSION: Use of the AM as a dressing on a corneal wound created by excimer laser surgery, in which severe haze is expected, may induce rapid epithelial healing with less inflammatory response. The AM may inhibit the irregular synthesis of stromal collagen that is associated with corneal haze.  (+info)

Suppression of interleukin 1alpha and interleukin 1beta in human limbal epithelial cells cultured on the amniotic membrane stromal matrix. (5/65)

AIMS: Amniotic membrane (AM) transplantation reduces inflammation in a variety of ocular surface disorders. The aim of this study was to determine if AM stroma suppresses the expression of the IL-1 gene family in cultured human corneal limbal epithelial cells. METHODS: Human corneal limbal epithelial cells were cultured from limbocorneal explants of donor eyes on plastic or on the AM stroma. Transcript expression of IL-1alpha, IL-1beta, IL-1 receptor antagonist (RA), and GAPDH was compared with or without addition of lipopolysaccharide to their serum-free media for 24 hours using RNAse protection assay (RPA). Their protein production in the supernatant was analysed by ELISA. RESULTS: Expression of IL-1alpha and IL-1beta transcripts and proteins was significantly reduced by cells cultured on the AM stromal matrix compared with plastic cultures whether lipopolysaccharide was added or not. Moreover, expression of IL-1 RA by cells cultured in the lipopolysaccharide-free medium was upregulated by AM stromal matrix. The ratio between IL-1 RA and IL-1alpha protein levels in AM cultures was higher than in plastic cultures. CONCLUSIONS: AM stromal matrix markedly suppresses lipopolysaccharide induced upregulation of both IL-1alpha and IL-1beta. These data may explain in part the effect of AM transplantation in reducing ocular surface inflammation, underscoring the unique feature of the AM as a substrate for tissue engineering.  (+info)

Amniotic membrane transplantation for reconstruction after excision of large ocular surface neoplasias. (6/65)

AIM: To evaluate the clinical outcome of patients in whom ocular surface reconstruction was performed using amniotic membrane transplantation (AMT) after the excision of large (>20 mm square) ocular surface neoplasias (OSN). METHODS: A non-comparative interventional case series. In 16 eyes of 16 patients, excision of large OSN including conjunctival intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), primary acquired melanosis, and malignant melanoma was followed by adjunctive cryotherapy and suturing of a single layer of amniotic membrane (AM) with the basement membrane side facing up to the healthy bordering tissue. Epithelial healing, complications, and tumour recurrences were analysed. RESULTS: During a mean follow up of 23.7 (SD 11, range 11-43) months, ocular surface healing was rapid and complete in all cases. One complication of pyogenic granuloma was noted. Tumour recurrence occurred in one out of 10 CIN cases (10%), no recurrences were observed in the patients with melanotic lesions. CONCLUSIONS: AMT in lieu of conjunctival or mucosal autograft is an effective substrate for reconstructing the ocular surface following excision of large OSN. AMT is effective in managing large OSN by avoiding the complications that may be associated with conventional removal, specifically in cases where the limbal architecture is destroyed by surgical resection or adjuvant therapies.  (+info)

Preparation of amniotic membrane for ocular surface reconstruction. (7/65)

We describe the preparation and preservation of human amniotic membrane required for transplantation in the management of ocular surface diseases. Informed consent is obtained and the donor is screened to exclude risk of transmissible infections such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, and Treponema pallidum infections. Ideally, the media and washing solutions needed for the preparation of amniotic membrane are prepared only a week to 10 days prior to use and not stored in the freezer weeks ahead. The AM obtained under sterile conditions after elective caesarian section is washed free of blood clots and chorion. With the epithelial surface up, amniotic membrane is spread uniformly without folds or tears on individually sterilized 0.22 micron nitrocellulose membranes of the required sizes. The prepared filter membrane with the adherent amniotic membrane is placed in the preservative medium and stored at -80 degrees C. The membranes are released when the repeat serology for HIV after the window period has excluded virus infection in the donor. Depending on consumption they may be used up to 6 months after preparation, though many have recommended storage for an indefinite period. Since the amniotic membrane has only incomplete expression of HLA antigens and amniotic epithelial cells do not express them, it is not rejected after transplantation. The presence of several cytokines in the amniotic membrane promotes epithelialization with reduction of fibrosis during healing.  (+info)

Preparation of collagen-based materials for wound dressing. (8/65)

OBJECTIVE: To describe the methods which were used to develop collagen-based materials for wound dressing. METHODS: Fresh frozen bovine tendon was treated with 0.05 mol/L acetic acid at pH 3.2 for 48-72 hours, homogenized, filtered, mixed with 8% chondroitin sulphate, for creating a deaerated 1.5%-2.5% collagen solution. The solution was lyophilized in either a pre-frozen or non-pre-frozen mould. The collagen sponge was then cross-linked with 0.25% glutaraldehyde for 24 hours. Three other types of wound dressings were developed using a similar method: collagen membrane with a polyurethane membrane onlay, polyurethane-coated collagen membrane and collagen membrane on gauze. RESULTS: It was demonstrated that the use of frozen bovine tendon was stable, and that the prepared collagen sponge contained pores of 50-400 microm in diameter. CONCLUSIONS: Collagen could be used as wound dressing.  (+info)

Intra-individual difference in time to wound closure between wound halves, either treated with Oleogel-S10 and non-adhesive wound dressing or treated with non-adhesive wound dressing only. Independent experts were blind to treatment and assessed efficacy based on chronological series of cropped and coded photographs by wound half that were taken before start of treatment, during wound dressing changes and at the end of treatment. Difference in time to wound closure was calculated for every individual participant as [time taken for wound half treated with Oleogel-S10 to close] - [time taken for wound half treated with non-adhesive wound dressing to close], i.e., results below 0 indicate earlier wound closure of Oleogel-S10 treatment. The overall mean difference in time to wound closure was calculated based on all mean differences in time to wound closure of individual participants. Hence, primary outcome data derived from mean difference in time to wound closure by participant ...

Collagen shields are biologically inert, structurally stable and biocompatible polymeric substances that may be well used as drug delivery system. They have been found to act as drug reservoir, which can deliver both hydrophilic as well as hydrophobic drugs, increase the contact time between drug and cornea as they can reversibly bind drug molecules and release them in delayed mode. Moreover, the cost of production of corneal shields is low. Collagen shields are generally manufactured from porcine or bovine collagen and three different collagen shields are currently available with dissolution times of 12, 24, and 72 hours. Presoaking the collagen shield in a pharmacological agent represents the most efficacious method of utilizing collagen shields for drug delivery. They have been observed to enhance drug delivery, promote epithelial and stromal healing, neutralize collagenases, and reduce corneal inflammation in different ophthalmic pathologies like microbial keratitis, conjunctivitis and ...

N2 - Maintaining a clean, quiescent tissue surface that is free of granulation and infection in the floor of a head-mounted chamber used for intracranial single-unit recording studies typically requires frequent cleaning. Considering the favourable outcomes of ontological surgical techniques that have long been used to create a dry, skin-lined mastoid cavity in patients with chronic otitis media, skin should be an ideal biological dressing to cover otherwise exposed dura mater in recording chambers. In chambers that required frequent cleaning, we harvested a thin layer of skin without hair follicles from the medial surface of the upper arms of two Rhesus monkeys and grafted the skin on the exposed dura surface. Each case resulted in a clean, dry, insensate, self-healing, ...

Refusing to limit itself to just one area of regenerative healthcare, The Electrospinning Company is also working in collaboration with the University of Sheffield to develop a simplified, affordable solution for corneal regeneration. This is required when a patient loses the cells that renew the corneal epithelium - the cells at the front of the eye that normally keep the cornea clear and scar-free. Left untreated, a scar-type tissue grows over the eye resulting in pain and eventual loss of vision. There is limited treatment available for this problem around the world due to the cost of the specialist facilities, expensive equipment and high-level of surgical skill required.. The Electrospinning Company has developed biodegradable, sterile electrospun membranes for the project, which can be used as an alternative to the human amniotic membrane. They can be stored for at least a year and are ready for use instantly. The first human pilot testing is forecast to take place sometime in the next ...

Purpose: : To evaluate the efficacy of early sutureless amniotic membrane transplantation in the management of severe bacterial keratitis to reduce pain, inflammation, and haze, and to promote healing. Methods: : A non-comparative case series including 3 eyes of 3 consecutive patients with severe bacterial keratitis exhibiting persistent epithelial defect/ulcer were retrospectively reviewed following early sutureless amniotic membrane transplantation via ProKeraTM together with selective topical antibiotics and preservative-free steroid. Pain relief, inflammation, haze, and corneal epithelial healing were monitored. Results: : ProKeraTM was inserted once in one eye, twice in the other two eyes. Pain was significantly relieved, and inflammation was markedly reduced in all cases. The corneal epithelial defect and stromal ulceration rapidly healed while visual acuity improved in two out of the 3 eyes. Conclusions: : Temporary sutureless amniotic membrane transplantation via ProKeraTM allows easy ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Hyaluronic acid impedes reepithelialization of skin graft donor sites. AU - Bettinger, David A.. AU - Mast, Bruce. AU - Gore, Dennis. PY - 1996/7. Y1 - 1996/7. N2 - Prior studies have suggested that hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan, may accelerate the healing of superficial burn wounds. To objectively assess whether exogenous HA could accelerate the rate of healing and limit scar formation in superficial wounds, 11 patients with burn injuries who were undergoing skin grafting were given two separate skin graft donor sites of similar size and depth (1 x 1 x 0.016). In a randomized, double-blind fashion, one of these partial-thickness wounds had repeated application with 1.5% HA; 100% glycerin, which served as a control of similar viscosity, was applied to the other wound. On alternating days, photographs were taken and then analyzed with computerized digital planimetry to objectively quantitate the rate of reepithelialization. In contrary to our ...
Treatment of necrotizing fasciitis (NF) includes radical surgical debridement often resulting in large wounds that need to be closed with methods including split-thickness skin grafts (STSG), local flaps, or guided tissue regeneration procedures.

Transplantation of bone marrow stromal cells (BMSC) or BMSC with some biomaterials has been used to treat various central nervous system diseases with some success. In the current study, we investigated if BMSC on denuded human amniotic membrane (DhAM) as a composite matrix could stimulate axonal outgrowth or not. Method: After completely removing the cells on the amniotic membrane with a tryptic and mechanical approach, we seeded BMSC on it. The MTS was applied to test the cytotoxicity of DhAM compared with ...

A reconstituted collagen membrane from human amnion has been investigated as a source of collagen matrix, which could be used as a substratum for culturing human fibroblasts. The suitability of pepsin-solubilized reconstituted human amniotic membrane, before and after cross-linking with chitosan, as a dermal matrix for culturing fibroblast was assessed by morphologic, physicochemical, cytotoxic and histochemical methods. Measurement of thermodynamic behaviour, by differential scanning calorimetric (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), and tensile strength suggested that the cross-linked membrane had sufficient elasticity to serve as an efficient dermal substrate for in vitro culture of fibroblasts. Fibroblasts cultured on the chitosan cross-linked collagen membrane had good adherence, retaining their morphology as indicated by microscopic analysis. Proliferation of fibroblasts, observed on this membrane affirms its non-toxic nature. These results support the application of reconstituted ...
