  • Gamma-irradiated human amniotic membrane decellularised with sodium dodecyl sulfate is a more efficient substrate for the ex vivo expansion of limbal stem cells 

    Figueiredo GS, Bojic S, Rooney P, Wilshaw S-P, Connon CJ, et al (2017) Gamma-irradiated human amniotic membrane decellularised with sodium dodecyl sulfate is a more efficient substrate for the ex vivo expansion of limbal stem cells. Acta Biomaterialia. Article in press. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.actbio.2017.07.041.
    The gold standard substrate for the ex vivo expansion of human limbal stem cells (LSCs) remains the human amniotic membrane (HAM) but this is not a defined substrate and is subject to biological variabil-ity and the potential ...
  • An anatomical study of porcine peripheral nerve and its potential use in nerve tissue engineering 

    Zilic L, Garner PE, Yu T, Roman S, Haycock JW, Wilshaw S-P (2017) An anatomical study of porcine peripheral nerve and its potential use in nerve tissue engineering. Journal of Anatomy. 227(3): 302–314.
    Current nerve tissue engineering applications are adopting xenogeneic nerve tissue as potential nerve grafts to help aid nerve regeneration. However, there is little literature that describes the exact location, anatomy ...
