Corneal disease is the second cause of blindness in developing countries, where the number of corneal grafts needed by far exceeds the number available. In industrialized countries, although corneas are generally available for keratoplasty, onto inflamed and vascularized host beds they are often rejected despite immune-suppression. A non-immunogenic, transparent, cytocompatible stroma is therefore required, which can be lyophilized for long-term conservation. Decellularization methods were tested on porcine corneal stromas before validation on human corneas...

Amniotic membrane is a biological material widely used in plastic and reconstructive surgery and in ophthalmology. Due to its excellent biocompatibility and strength we tried to use it as a scaffold for the in vitro cultivation of different cell types, especially keratinocytes and limbal stem cells. It was possible to cultivate limbal stem cells and keratinocytes without using 3T3 mouse fibroblast feeder cells on deep frozen amniotic membranes. The amniotic membrane can also be used as a carrier for suspensions of different types of cells, allowing a substantial reduction of the cultivation time needed to prepare cell cultures for clinical application to burn patients...

The bone auto grafting, isografting, allografting and xenografting are used for defective bone replacement or treatment in almost all living species. The X-ray and Gamma (electromagnetic radiation) sterilization performed on the donor bone graft to prevent toxicity or migration of virus/bacterial infections from donors to reciver. Conversely, X-ray and Gamma radiation deteriorates the bone mechanical properties and bone become more susceptible to fracture. Fracture toughness as well as other mechanical properties of bone change with these radiations...
