Lymphatic vessels in vascularized human corneas: immunohistochemical investigation using LYVE-1 and podoplanin.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: To determine whether lymphatic vessels exist in vascularized human corneas, by using immunohistochemistry with novel markers for lymphatic endothelium. METHODS: Human corneas exhibiting neovascularization secondary to keratitis, transplant rejection, trauma, and limbal insufficiency (n = 21) were assessed for lymphatic vessel content by conventional transmission electron microscopy and by immunostaining and immunoelectron microscopy with antibodies specific for the lymphatic endothe...
