Translating ocular immunology from the laboratory to the clinic- keratoplasty
Acta Ophthalmologica, 08/08/2012
Pleyer U – There are still limitations to corneal transplantation, and allograft rejection still poses the greatest challenge. In the last two decades, graft survival has been greatly improved by the introduction of efficient immunosuppressive drugs. This lecture aims to highlight the most novel and successful strategies to achieve a better outcome of pkp and e.g. tolerance via induction of Tregs. In addition, the use of lamellar grafts has significantly changed the perception and will be discussed.
