Did you know that cornea is largely composed of collagen? Collagen is an extremely significant component of the human body and accounts for about a quarter of the total amount of protein in the body.
Based on this knowledge, Swedish researchers have developed a corneal implant consisting of collagen proteins derived from pig skin. The main advantages are high availability, inexpensive extraction and the possibility of storage over a long period of time. The pilot study with 20 subjects over a period of more than two years shows promising results.
