Figure 3. Characterization of the fibrin gel and the rabbit corneas after transplantation. Hematoxylin and eosin staining of Group 1 (A) showed the fibrin gel with Rb-MSCs and Group 2 (B) the fibrin gel without cells (400X). A slit-lamp photograph (C) and hematoxylin and eosin staining (D) showed the model of limbal stem cell deficiency (400X). A slit-lamp photograph of the rabbit corneas after transplantation showed the opacification and neovascularization in Group 1 (E) and in Group 2 (F). Hematoxylin and eosin staining showed that goblet cells, new vessels, and inflammatory cells were present in some regions in Group 1 (G) and Group 2 (H; 400X). Positive CK3 staining was continuous throughout whole corneal epithelium in Group 1 (I), but was irregular in Group 2 (J) by immunofluorescent staining (100X). Double staining showed corneal epithelial cells expressed BrdU (green) and CK3 (red) in Group 1 (K; 200X). A higher magnification of the double staining is seen in panel L (400X).
