Abstract The condition of the corneal epithelium is a critical determinant of corneal transparency and clear vision. The corneal epithelium serves as a barrier to protect the eye from external insults, with its smooth surface being essential for its optical properties. Disorders of the corneal epithelium include superficial punctate keratopathy, corneal erosion, and persistent epithelial defects (PEDs). The prompt resolution of these disorders is important for minimization of further damage to the cornea. Currently available treatment modalities for corneal epithelial disorders are based on protection of the ocular surface in order to allow natural healing to proceed. PEDs remain among the most difficult corneal conditions to treat, however. On the basis of characterization of the pathobiology of PEDs at the cell and molecular biological levels, we have strived to develop new modes of treatment for these defects. These treatments rely on two key concepts: provision of a substrate, such as the adhesive glycoprotein fibronectin, for the attachment and migration of corneal epithelial cells, and activation of these cells by biological agents such as the combination of substance P and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). Central to both approaches is the role of the fibronectin鈥搃ntegrin system in corneal epithelial wound healing. Determination of the minimum amino acid sequences required for the promotion of corneal epithelial wound closure by fibronectin (PHSRN) and by substance P (FGLM-amide) plus IGF-1 (SSSR) has led to the development of peptide eyedrops for the treatment of PEDs that are free of adverse effects of the parent molecules.

Background/aims The dry-eye drug rebamipide has mucin secretagogue activity in and anti-inflammatory effects on corneal epithelial cells. Corneal stromal fibroblasts (transdifferentiated keratocytes) function as immune modulators in the pathogenesis of chronic ocular allergic inflammation and in innate immune responses at the ocular surface. The possible anti-inflammatory effects of rebamipide on human corneal stromal fibroblasts were examined. Methods Serum-deprived cells were incubated for 1鈥卙...

Rebamipide was initially developed and approved for use in treating gastric ulcers and lesions associated with gastritis. Discovery of its ability to increase gastric mucin led to investigations of its effect on ocular surface mucin and the subsequent development for use in dry eye patients. Investigations have confirmed that rebamipide increases corneal and conjunctival mucin-like substances along with improving corneal and conjunctival injury. Clinically, rebamipide ophthalmic suspensions can ...

Corneal nerves are responsible for the sensations of touch, pain, and temperature and play an important role in the blink reflex, wound healing, and tear production and secretion. Corneal nerve dysfunction is a frequent feature of diseases that cause opacities and result in corneal blindness. Corneal opacities rank as the second most frequent cause of blindness. Technological advances in in vivo corneal nerve imaging, such as optical coherence tomography and confocal scanning, have generated new...

Significance: Integrins are bidirectional signaling receptors for extracellular matrix that regulate both inside-out signaling that controls keratinocyte-mediated changes to the wound microenvironment and outside-in signaling that controls keratinocyte responses to microenvironmental changes. As such, integrins represent attractive therapeutic targets for treatment of chronic wounds or general promotion of wound healing. Advances in wound management are particularly important as the elderly and ...

Abstract Cells undergo dynamic remodeling of the cytoskeleton during adhesion and migration on various extracellular matrix (ECM) substrates in response to physiological and pathological cues. The major mediators of such cellular responses are the heterodimeric adhesion receptors, the integrins. Extracellular or intracellular signals emanating from different signaling cascades cause inside-out signaling of integrins via talin, a cystokeletal protein that links integrins to the actin cytoskeleton...

Purpose Integrins play a central role in myofibroblast pathological adhesion, over-contraction, and TGF尾 activation. Previously, we demonstrated that after corneal wounding, 伪v integrins are protected from intracellular degradation by upregulation of the deubiquitinase USP10, leading to cell-surface integrin accumulation. Because integrins bind to and internalize extracellular matrix (ECM), we tested whether extracellular fibronectin (FN) accumulation can result from an increase in integrin and ...

Corneal wound healing is a highly regulated biological process that is of importance for reducing the risk of blinding corneal infections and inflammations. Traditional eye drop was the main approach for promoting corneal wound healing. However, its low bioavailability required a high therapeutic concentration, which can lead to ocular or even systemic side effects. To develop a safe and effective method for treating corneal injury, we fabricated rutin-encapsulated gelatin hydrogel/contact lens ...

Abstract The cornea is a relatively unique tissue in the body in that it possesses specific features such as a lack of blood vessels that contribute to its transparency. The cornea is supplied with soluble blood components such as albumin, globulin, and fibrinogen as well as with nutrients, oxygen, and bioactive substances by diffusion from aqueous humor and limbal vessels as well as a result of its exposure to tear fluid. The healthy cornea is largely devoid of cellular components of blood such...

Neural epidermal growth factor-like 1 protein (Nell-1) is first studied because of its association with human craniosynostosis. Nell-1 has been used to accelerate the process of fracture healing because of the osteoinductive ability in recent years. However, the role of Nell-1 during the process of osteointegration is unknown. Here we show that activation of Nell-1 in the BMSC sheet promotes osseointegration in vivo and in vitro. We found that overexpression of Nell-1 improved osteogenic differe...

BACKGROUND: Healthy corneal epithelium acts as a barrier against damage to the deeper structures in the eye. Failure in the mechanisms of corneal epithelization can lead to persistent epithelial defects of the cornea (PEDs) and can compromise its function. Epidermal growth factor (EGF) promotes the proliferation, migration, and differentiation of epithelial cells, endothelial cells, and fibroblasts during wound healing and may be beneficial in treating patients with PEDs. We, therefore, investig...

: Poor post-traumatic wound healing can affect the normal function of damaged tissues and organs. For example, poor healing of corneal epithelial injuries may lead to permanent visual impairment. It is of great importance to find a therapeutic way to promote wound closure. Tetrahedral framework nucleic acids (tFNAs) are new promising nanomaterials, which can affect the biological behavior of cells. In the experiment, corneal wound healing is used as an example to explore the effect of tFNAs on w...
