Figure 4. Representative photographs and H-E stained sections of transplanted porcine corneal discs. The left column shows photograph of decellularized (A) and native (D) porcine corneal disc just after transplantation into rabbit corneal pockets. The middle column shows photograph of decellularized (B) and native (E) porcine corneal disc eight weeks after transplantation. The right column shows H&E stained section of decellularized (C) and native (F) porcine corneal disc eight weeks after transplantation. Decellularized corneal discs caused slight inflammation and recovered transparency whereas native corneal discs caused severe immune reactions and remained cloudy. Scale bar, 500 µm.
