Artificial cornea set for clinical trials next year

Abstract:
The polymer is cut into artificial corneas by medical implant firm Dr. Schmidt Intraocularlinsen of Sankt Augustin, Germany.

'When we get them (cut polymers), then we start with our chemistry on them,' says Storsberg. 'It is only the basic material to start with. We modify it.'

Storsberg declines to go into further detail about the technology, saying only that it is nanotechnology-based and that the team will publicly release details when their paper is published in a scientific journal.
