Researchers from Osaka University developed a novel method to produce corneal sheets from human induced pluripotent stem cells. By separating corneal epithelial cells from other eye cells using magnetic-activated cell sorting and subsequent culture on specific laminin proteins, the researchers were able to create high-purity corneal cell sheets. These findings could help produce human corneal cell sheets for the treatment of corneal diseases.
