Repair and reconstruction of the cornea has historically relied on synthetic materials or tissue transplantation. However, the future holds promise for treatments using smart biomaterials and stem cells that direct tissue repair and regeneration to ultimately create new ocular structures that are indistinguishable from the original native tissue. The cornea is a remarkable engineering structure. By understanding the physical structure of the tissue and the resulting impact of the structure on biological function, we can design novel materials for a number of ophthalmic clinical applications.
Corneal Repair and Regeneration: Current Concepts and Future Directions
An introduction to ophthalmic biomaterials and their application through tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Part 1 Applications in the anterior segment: Advances in intraocular lens development; Opacification and degradation of implanted intraocular lenses; Synthetic corneal implants; Corneal tissue engineering versus synthetic artificial corneas; Tissue engineering of human cornea; Engineering the corneal epithelial cell response to materials; Reconstruction of the ocular surface using biomaterials; Tissue engineering of the lens: Fundamentals; Bioinspired biomaterials for soft contact lenses; Contact lenses: The search for superior oxygen permeability; Extended wear contact lenses. Part 2 Applications in the posterior segment: Designing hydrogels as vitreous substitutes in ophthalmic surgery; Retinal repair and regeneration; Development of tissue-engineered membranes for the culture and transplantation of retinal pigment epithelial cells. Part 3 Other applications: Hydrogel sealants for wound repair in ophthalmic surgery; Orbital enucleation implants: Biomaterials and design; Selected polymeric materials for orbital reconstruction; Physicochemical properties of hydrogels for use in ophthalmology. With an increasingly aged population, eye diseases are becoming more widespread. Consequently, biomaterials and regenerative medicine are becoming increasingly important to the advances of ophthalmology and optometry. Biomaterials and regenerative medicine in ophthalmology reviews the present status and future direction of biomaterials and regenerative medicine in this important field.
The cornea is a unique tissue and the most powerful focusing element of the eye, known as a window to the eye. Infectious or non-infectious diseases might cause severe visual impairments that need medical intervention to restore patients' vision. The most prominent characteristics of the cornea are its mechanical strength and transparency, which are indeed the most important criteria considerations when reconstructing the injured cornea. Regarding corneal transparency, the specific characteristics of the cornea include its immune and angiogenic privilege besides its limbus zone. On the other hand, angiogenic privilege involves several active cascades in which anti-angiogenic factors are produced to compensate for the enhanced production of proangiogenic factors after wound healing. Limbus of the cornea forms a border between the corneal and conjunctival epithelium, and its limbal stem cells LSCs are essential in maintenance and repair of the adult cornea through its support of corneal epithelial tissue repair and regeneration.
Biomaterials and regenerative medicine in ophthalmology
Regenerative medicine deals with the "process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human or animal cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function". Regenerative medicine also includes the possibility of growing tissues and organs in the laboratory and implanting them when the body cannot heal itself. When the cell source for a regenerated organ is derived from the patient's own tissue or cells,  the challenge of organ transplant rejection via immunological mismatch is circumvented. Some of the biomedical approaches within the field of regenerative medicine may involve the use of stem cells. The ancient Greeks postulated whether parts of the body could be regenerated in the s BC. These advances led to tissue engineering, and from this field, the study of regenerative medicine expanded and began to take hold.

Это просто как день.
Нуматака удовлетворенно мотнул головой. Хорошая новость. Звонок из Соединенных Штатов.
Эй! - крикнул Чатрукьян. Ответа не последовало.
Это шанс всей вашей жизни. И вы хотите его упустить. - Следи за мной, - холодно парировал Стратмор.
Ее снова сжали уже знакомые ей стальные руки, а ее голова была намертво прижата к груди Хейла. - Боль внизу нестерпима, - прошипел он ей на ухо. Колени у Сьюзан подкосились, и она увидела над головой кружащиеся звезды.
Может быть, американка? - предположил. - Не думаю, - сказала Росио. - На ней была майка с британским флагом.
Бесчувственная демонстрация силы страной, уже добившейся победы.
