Abstract:PDGF-BB is an inducible component of tear fluid. In spite of hypersecretion caused by the corneal wound, PDGF-BB concentrations raised significantly during the initial wound healing. Increased PDGF-BB release during the two postoperative days following PRK suggests a role in corneal wound healing.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
