Bio-engineered corneal tissue for minimally invasive vision restoration in advanced keratoconus in two clinical cohorts – Fauna and Flora News

Researchers and entrepreneurs have developed an implant made from pigskin collagen protein, which resembles the human cornea. In a pilot study, the implant restored vision to 20 people with diseased corneas, most of whom were blind before receiving the implant. The joint study by researchers from Linköping University (LiU) and LinkoCare Life Sciences AB has …

While some studies have shown that white blood cells heroically restrict tumor growth and fight colorectal cancer, equally compelling evidence presents white blood cells as malignant co-conspirators, reinforcing the tumor and helping it to spread. Now, …
