OcularColl - A thin-film, collagen based scaffold for ocular repair

Ocular surface disorders (OSDs) represent a range of specific conditions that often result in persistent epithelial defects of the cornea or damage to the conjunctiva. Traditional transplantation treatments are limited due to the paucity of donor tissue. The Tissue Engineering Research Group at RCSI has developed a novel fabrication technique that allows for the production of a collagen-based, thin-film scaffold akin to the appearance of amniotic membrane- OcularColl. Technology summary (PDF 466KB)
